In addition to organic cotton, there are many materials for creating textiles. 

Recycled Polyester

It reuses existing material which does not waste energy and reduces CO emissions by 75%2. It is a point to take into account since it collects existing material and has no environmental impact because there are no emissions generated by the creation process.

Hemp

It does not use so much water for its development and to have properties antimicrobial y anticotics makes it an option to consider. It can also be grown very well without toxins, it can be indigenous and does not need a lot of space for its cultivation.
