As our climate, ecological and social crises converge, urgent action is needed to maximize our chances of survival. A new commercial approach is possible but it requires a systemic shift, with companies learning to operate as part of a wider ‘ecosystem’, allowing fashion to restore what it has taken.

Regenerative Fashion presents a roadmap for new ways of doing fashion. To keep our planet safe, we must cut production and end our dependency on fossil fuels. We must also create dignified livelihoods for the millions of people working in the industry. By using natural resources, paying factory workers and farmers a living wage and scaling up craft production, we can not only rebuild soils, ecosystems and biodiversity, but also support decarbonization, regenerate communities and ensure a just transition for all.

Part guide and part manifesto, this book shares stories of our interconnectedness with the natural world and each other, divided into sections on Nature & Materials; People, Livelihoods & Crafts; and New Economy & Leadership. Fully illustrated throughout, it features interviews from best-practice designers and businesses around the world, as well as thought pieces from leading campaigners within the industry.

A call to anyone out there who still believes that a better future is worth fighting for.
Carole Bamford, founder of Daylesford
This book is very important. Safia articulates the urgency with which we must act to transform the fashion industry and save our planet with both authority and optimism. Her vision for a holistically regenerative model is truly inspiring and touches on every part of the garment-making process; starting with the soil and good farming practices through to design, production and distribution. I share Safia's vision for a nature-based approach to fashion and have been putting this into practice through my work at Bamford, Daylesford and Nila for over twenty years. Reading this refreshing new perspective serves as an important reminder that we all have a responsibility to make better choices - shunning damaging synthetics and supporting livelihoods through craft while helping to restore all that we have taken from nature. Fashion can - and should - be a force for good, and Safia's key commitments are a viable way for us to achieve this for the sake of future generations.
It is a good overview of sustainability and great to see that the book is coming to this from lots of different angles, from fibres to case studies. We hope to make the students fully engaged with this as it is key to becoming an informed designer.
A great overview of leaders within design and manufacture within the responsible fashion space.
An excellent resource... I love the depth and explanation the book provides - especially all of the examples. The interviews with different people and brands/companies are extremely insightful.
