An HeiQ employee demonstrates their new fleece that can absorb oil in water at the company plant in Bad Zurzach June 24, 2010. The oil guard -- which looks like a heavy felt -- is water resistant and can absorb up to seven times its weight in crude oil. Along with its German partner TWE, HeiQ can each day produce enough to cover up to 10 km of coastline and could be used in a plan to save the oil-drenched coastlines of the Gulf of Mexico, according to the company's heads.

Natural rolls of countesses and fibres are displayed in the C.L.A.S.S exhibition space during Milan Spring/Summer 2008 women collection Fashion Week September 29, 2007. A new forum that wants to put high fashion together with sustainable fabrics launched alongside Milan's womenswear shows last week, aiming to marry materials made of wood, plants and even milk with innovative design. C.L.A.S.S. -- Creativity, Lifestyle and Sustainable Synergy -- is the brainchild of Giusy Bettoni and Sandy McLennan, who had both had careers in the textile industry and saw a gap where designers could not easily find "green" fabrics.

Cotton Classers (L-R) Greg Parle, Michael Summers and Peter Sharpe divide different qualities of the natural fibre at the Auscott Classing Facility in Sydney August 26. The 1997/98 Australian cotton crop has made history by outstripping wool production for the first time ever, with production amounting to 681,000 tonnes, greater than the year's wool production of 636,000 tonnes. Cotton production in Australia has trebled since 1985, due largely to the improved availability of irrigation water in all regions which led to an expansion in the area planted to 428,000 hectares.
