The latest issue of WSA magazine is now available

The July/August 2018 issue of WSA magazine is now available. The full e-zine can be accessed here.

This issue leads with an article examining the importance of authoritative studies and global-recognised standards when it comes to helping textile and apparel manufacturers and consumers understand the carbon footprint of their products.

In our other lead articles, we look at some of the fabric and textile technologies being developed for the growing performance sleepwear market, and we explore the rising popularity of locally-sourced wool. 

This issue’s Newcomers feature focuses on Swiss performance sportswear brand X-Bionic and a new project it has launched which it says will create garments optimised to the exact requirements of an athlete.

In our Rise to the Challenge feature, we hear from UK-based outdoor brand Berghaus about its work to support an all-female team on an expedition to the North Pole. The focus on women’s sportswear continues in an article which puts the spotlight on three brands going out of their way to appeal to the identity of female consumers. 

As always, we dedicate some space to the latest technologies in footwear, with this issue’s feature taking a closer look at a collaboration between Under Armour and Dow that has resulted in a new cushioning system. Footwear is also the focus for our Sustainability feature, which hears why the founder of boating shoe brand Two Degrees wants the term ‘sustainability’ to be banned altogether.

The latest industry figure to feature in our Game Changers section is Renee Henze, global marketing director of DuPont Biomaterials. She gives WSA her views on how real change can be driven in the clothing supply chain.
