How many times have you seen a headline around “smart clothing” or “wearable tech” and you’ve been disappointed that the product doesn’t look so wearable at all? Personally, I don’t have enough fingers to count the amount, quite honestly.

Every year, roughly USD 500 billion of barely worn clothing is discarded, even though manufacturing these items takes a tremendous toll on the environment – using coal and petroleum to create synthetic fibers and pesticides to grow natural ones, including cotton.

Low-cost labour has been the primary reason for western retailers to wait for months to get a shipment from offshore destinations. Once technology becomes a cheaper alternative to the least costly manufacturing labour, will apparel manufacturing complete the journey in returning home?
