Preface
Since the last decade, “sustainability” has been one of the frequently heard terms in any industrial segment and has become a hot-button societal issue. The apparel sector, one of the important industrial sectors, cannot exclude sustainability, which is an important part of the agenda in the range of activities on which the apparel sector must focus. Sustainability and its developments are not new to the apparel sector, and it is becoming increasingly popular these days. Perhaps achieving sustainability in the clothing and apparel sector might look like an ambitious aspect, but it is doable. Since the supply chain is rather long, people do doubt its capabilities; however, many approaches are being followed to achieve sustainability. Owing to the longer and massive supply chain in the apparel industry, the assessment and implementation of sustainable measures in this industry are complex, and they cannot be denied. Nevertheless, striving efforts, cooperation, and collaboration from various members involved in the entire apparel supply chain make the complex task practically possible.

Sustainability in apparel production is a vast topic and it has many facets. This handbook divides this wide topic into five sections, and in each section, very important aspects are dealt with in dedicated chapters, written by subject experts. Section I (Chapters 1–6) is dedicated to sustainable raw materials and manufacturing processes and technologies that can pave the way toward sustainability in apparel production. Section II (Chapters 7–10) is earmarked to deal with an important aspect: the environmental and social impacts of apparel production and its assessment.

Chapters 11–13 in Section III revolve around discussions pertaining to the sustainability and consumption behavior of the apparel industry. The assessment of sustainability aspects and parameters is an important subject, and various topics come under this umbrella. Hence, Section IV (Chapters 14–19) is dedicated to this lengthy topic. Section V (Chapters 20–23) is earmarked to detail the design aspects, particularly sustainable design/eco-design, and new approaches to fashion sustainability.

All the important aspects, including even very minute details pertaining to sustainable apparel production, have been collated in this handbook, presented in the 23 chapters. I thank all the chapter contributors for their earnest efforts in successfully bringing out this handbook with the enriched technical content. I am very confident that the readers will benefit from the imperative details presented here pertaining to sustainable apparel production. The handbook will undoubtedly become an important reference for researchers and students, industrialists, and sustainability professionals working in the apparel sector.
