New biopolymer materials based on polysaccharides with added natural waxes and essential oils are an excellent replacement for traditional materials, their production and after treatment methods and have a great potential to become a more environmentally friendly solution in the near future.

Another sustainable advantage of eco- friendly clothes of the future is their self-cleaning property, which eliminates the use of traditionally used washing methods and their negative effects for the environment.

The fashion industry is considered one of the largest polluters estimated, and accounts for about 8-10% of global CO2 emissions.

Even commonly used natural materials are also harmful due to the large amount of water and chemicals used to grow the plant for fiber. Environmental and health problems can also be caused by fabric pigments and subsequent treatments of natural fabrics themselves.
