Kenyan company bags top award for making fabric from nettles

Apr 10, 2019 13:13 IST

A Kenyan company won a top sustainable fashion award for producing organic fibres from nettles. Green Nettle Textile bagged the accolade, which is often dubbed as the Nobel Prize for sustainable fashion. Nettle is a plant that grows in Kenya and is used for medicinal purposes. It's an eco-friendly alternative to conventional methods. The 2019 Global Change Award was powered by the H&M Foundation.
