Textile Exchange Publications

Much of Textile Exchange's work is done on the ground and in person with brands, retailers, manufactuers, farmers and other stakeholders. We also produce valuable reports and educational materials about organic fibers, made possible through the support of our members and funders. Therefore, many of these reports are provided to Textile Exchange members at no cost. Our reports are also available for purchase to non-members (will be sent to the purchaser via email in PDF format).
