As society becomes increasingly aware of the importance of environmentally responsible buildings and interior design, more businesses and individuals are seeking to incorporate sustainability principles. Interior designers have a tremendous impact on the sustainability of an environment because they decide which materials and products will be used.

Designing for low environmental impact means choosing materials and products that are renewable (such as fast-growing water hyacinth, typha grass, bamboo, coconut shells, banana residues) and are harvested and recovered in an environmentally responsible way.
Sustainable fashion is a design philosophy and movement that promotes environment and social responsibility. It concerns more than just addressing fashion textiles or products, it comprises addressing the whole system of fashion dealing with interdependent social, cultural, ecological, and financial systems. MitiMeth aims to supply textile manufacturers with yarns spun from water hyacinth, jute selvedges, banana fiber, cotton and possibly other suitable natural fibers sourced locally and be your sustainable supplier choice. Partners wanted!
