    Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity.
    Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!

    Here are the six pillars that explain why trees are vital:


    Trees help to clean the air we breathe. Through their leaves and bark, they absorb harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe. In urban environments, trees absorb pollutant gases like nitrogen oxides, ozone, and carbon monoxide, and sweep up particles like dust and smoke. Increasing levels of carbon dioxide caused by deforestation and fossil fuel combustion trap heat in the atmosphere. Healthy, strong trees act as carbon sinks, offset carbon and reducing the effects of climate change


    Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. Their intricate root systems act like filters, removing pollutants and slowing down the water’s absorption into the soil. This process prevents harmful waterslide erosion and reduces the risk of over-saturation and flooding. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Association, a mature evergreen tree can intercept more than 15,000 litres of water every year.


    A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Depending on the kind of food and shelter they need, different forest animals require different types of habitat. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.

    Young, Open Forests: These forests occur as a result of fires or logging. Shrubs, grasses, and young trees attract animals like black bears, the American goldfinch, and bluebirds in North America.

    Middle-Aged Forests: In middle-aged forests, taller trees begin to outgrow weaker trees and vegetation. An open canopy allows for the growth of ground vegetation prefered by animals like salamanders, elk, and tree frogs.

    Older Forests: With large trees, a complex canopy, and a highly developed understory of vegetation, old forests provide habitat for an array of animals, including bats, squirrels, and many birds.


    From arborists to loggers and researchers, the job opportunities provided by the forestry industry are endless. We don’t just rely on trees for work, though. Sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and shelters, and wood to burn for cooking and heating. Food-producing trees provide fruit, nuts, berries, and leaves for consumption by both humans and animals, and pack a powerful nutritional punch. 


    Did you know that hospital patients with rooms overlooking trees recover faster than those without the same view? It’s impossible to ignore that feeling of elation you get while walking through a calm, quiet forest. Trees help reduce stress and anxiety, and allow us to reconnect with nature. In addition, shade provided by tree coverage helps protect our skin from the ever-increasing harshness of the sun. 


    Trees help cool the planet by sucking in and storing harmful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into their trunks, branches, and leaves — and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere. In cities, trees can reduce ambient temperatures by up to 8° Celsius. With more than 50% of the world’s population living in cities — a number expected to increase to 66% by the year 2050 — pollution and overheating are becoming a real threat. Fortunately, a mature tree can absorb an average of 48 lbs of carbon dioxide per year, making cities a healthier, safer place to live.

  2. Hello world!




    Description:Soft cellulose fibres are spun in to a yarn. A material that breathes, known from the antique and becomes more available with time. Being a soft, comfortable fabric makes it aleading material for producing clothes. Production of cottons stabilizes and makes economy grow all around the world. Because it breathes, it is appropriate also for production of blouses,
    male clothes, basically for what we wear in the summer. It wrinkles fast, but it gains on quality
    with adding the polyester, and becomes easier to be taken care of. Not only that cotton absorbs
    water really well, what is great is the high temperatures that don’ t damage it.
    History: In the Indus River Valley in Pakistan, cotton was being grown, spun and woven
    into cloth 3,000 years BC. ... Arab merchants brought cotton cloth to Europe about 800 A.D.
    When Columbus discovered America in 1492, he found cotton growing in the Bahama Islands.
    By 1500, cotton was known generally throughout the world.




    Description: Fine, thick, with crosswise ribs. Easy to iron, no matter, it hardly wrinkles. The multi-
    usable, non-elastic thin fiber is very handy. Absorbency and airiness make it comfortable to
    History: The term poplin originates from papelino, a fabric made at Avignon, France, in the 15th
    century, named for the papal residence there, and from the French papelaine (a fabric,
    normally made with silk, of the same period). The most common usage of poplin until about the
    20th century was to make silk, cotton or heavy weight wool dresses, suitable for winter wear.
    Poplin was also a popular upholstery fabric. In the early 1920s, British-made cotton poplin was
    introduced to the United States, but the American market thought that the name had
    connotations of heaviness and arbitrarily renamed it broadcloth, a name that persists for a
    cotton or polyester-cotton blend fabric used for shirting. In Europe, broadcloth typically
    describes a densely woven woolen fabric with a smooth finish.
    Poplin traditionally consisted of a silk warp with a weft of worsted yarn. 




    Description: Could be cotton or viscose, anyhow it is knitted and very stretchy. It’s named after the actual place. Elastic and nice to touch. It is distinguished by endurance and maximum absorbency. 
    History: In 1916, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel upset the fashion industry by using jersey at a
    time when it was strictly associated with underwear. "This designer made jersey what it is
    today—we hope she's satisfied," said Vogue in 1999. "It's almost as much part of our lives as
    blue serge"It was originally made of wool, but is now made of wool, cotton, and synthetic
    fibers. Since medieval times, Jersey, Channel Islands, where the material was first produced,
    had been an important exporter of knitted goods and the fabric in wool from Jersey became well




    Description: Imitation of the natural fibers. What viscose actually
    is: it is a regenerated celulose fiber, which means that it was produced by an chemical process
    that brings the natural celulosis out from the primal fibre. It is more hidrophilic than cotton,
    besides it has high thermo-isolating properties. Viscose is soft to touch, but with a lower tearing
    force, especially wet. How is it produced? By infinite filamentous threads that come out firstly as Reyon, or after more cutting production wraped in to a yarn and devided by different fineness.
    Products offer a nice feeling while being worn.
    History: Originally known as artificial silk, in the late 19th century, the term “rayon” came
    into effect in 1924. The name “viscose” derived from the way this fibre is manufactured; a
    viscous organic liquid used to make both rayon and cellophane. ... Viscose can also be found in
    feminine hygiene products, as well as tire cords.




    Description: Satin; soft to touch, glossy to look at. Poliestric knits are merly ment for colder parts
    of the year, sometimes even for clothes for the summer. There are several reasons for the
    importance of polyester:
    The relatively easy accessible raw materials PTA or DMT and MEG
    The very well understood and described simple chemical process of polyester synthesis
    The low toxicity level of all raw materials and side products during polyester production and
    The possibility to produce PET in a closed loop at low emissions to the environment
    The outstanding mechanical and chemical properties of polyester
    The recyclability
    The wide variety of intermediate and final products made of polyester.
    History: Polyester was first introduced to the American public in 1951. It was advertised
    as a miracle fiber that could be worn for 68 days straight without ironing and still look
    presentable. In 1958 another polyester fiber called Kodel was developed by Eastman Chemical
    Products, Inc. The polyester market kept expanding.




    Description: a soft fabric, being referred to nobility. Appropriate for festivals and holidays. The soft cotton fabric has a unique ribbed structure. Thinner velvets are mostly used for clothes in the
    mid season time, while thicker ones offer a reliable source for fashion accessories.
    History: Because of its complicated, costly production and unusual softness and
    appearance, velvet was historically associated with European nobility. But velvet originated in
    Eastern culture. There's evidence as early as 2000 BCE that ancient Egyptians employed a
    similar technique to the one used today in velvet manufacture.




    Description: Chiffon is a lightweight, balanced plain-woven sheer fabric, or gauze, like gossamer, woven of alternate S- and Z-twist crepe (high-twist) yarns. The twist in the crepe yarns puckers the fabric slightly in both directions after weaving, giving it some stretch and a slightly rough feel.
    History: The word Chiffon has a French origin which means a cloth. It is primarily made from cotton, silk or synthetic fibers like nylon, rayon and polyester. Chiffon is most commonly used to weave Sarees, Dresses and Scarves. The fabric was made exclusively with Silk until Nylon was invented in 1938.



    Mixed materials:

    Description: It consist of two or more materials. Are thick and non elastic. Usually printed.





    Opis: Mehka celulozna vlakna so spredena v prejo. Material, ki diha je poznan že od antike, s časom pa postane dostopnejši. Mehkoba in komfort sta značilnosti zaradi katerih je vodilni material v produkciji oblačil, ki stabilizira ekonomijo in skrbi za njeno rast. Zračnost služi tudi produkciji bluz, moških oblačil, ubistvu vsega kar nosimo poleti. Hitro se guba, pridobi na kvaliteti, ko mu dodajamo poliester, ravno z dodatkom lažje skrbimo za tkanino. Ne samo, da zelo dobro vpije vodo, tudi visoke temperature ga ne poškodujejo. 

    Zgodovina: Gojenje bombaža se začne v  dolini reke Indus. Arabski trgovci ga prinesejo v Evropo okoli leta 800. Kolumbusovo odktije Amerike leta 1492 pomeni tudi najdbo rastočega bombaža na Bahamskih otokih. Do leta 1500 je poznan po celem svetu.



    Opis: Fin, gost, križno vezan material,neelastičen. Lahko se lika in je  zelo multifunkcionalen. Absorbcija in lahkotnost ga naredita prijetnega za nošnjo.
    Zgodovina: Izraz izvira iz besede papelino, gre za ime tkanine, navadno pridelane s svilo, nastale v Avignonu, Francija, okoli 15. stoletja. Gre tudi za poimenovanje rezidence. Popularen za izdelavo zimskih oblačil postane v 20. stoletju, uporabljajo ga tudi za oblazinjenje. Poplin izdelan v Veliki Britaniji uporabljajo tudi Združene države Amerike, ki zanj uporabljajo svoje ime. Evropejci ga opisujejo kot gost volnen material z gladkim finišem. Tradicionalno sestoji v obliki svilenega zavitka.



    Opis: Poznamo bombažnega ali viskoznega, vsekakor je pleten in zelo raztegljiv. Poimenovan je po dejanskem kraju. Je elastičen in prijeten na dotik. Prepoznaven je po vzdržljivosti in maksimalni vpojnosti. 
    Zgodovina: leta 1916 Gabrielle Coco Chanel uporabi tkanino na modni pisti, ki je bila do takrat namenjena le za spodnje perilo. Originalno volna, dandanes tudi bombaž ali sintetični. Že iz časov srednjega veka je območje Jerseya poznano po tkanini.



    Opis: Oponaša naravna vlakna. Kaj viskoza ubistvu je? Gre za produkcijo kemijskega procesa, ki izvleče naravno celulozo ven iz primarnega vlakna. Je bolj hidrofilična kot bombaž, poleg tega je tudi zelo toploto izolirna. Na dotik mehka, z nizko trgalno silo, sploh, ko je mokra. Kako nastane? Sprva v obliki niti imenovanih Reyon, ki so po rezanju ovite v prejo in razdeljene po različnih finostih. Nudi dober občutek, ko jo nosimo.
    Zgodovina: Originalno poznana kot umetna svila, prepoznana v 19. stoletju. Ime viskoza je oblikovano po tehniki pridobivanja vlakna, gre za organsko tekočino, zato jo lahko najdemo tudi v ženskih higenskih produktih, prav tako kot v gumah za avtomobile.



    Opis: Saten, mehek na dotik, svetleč na pogled. Načeloma namenjen za hladni del leta, le kdaj pa kdaj za poletna oblačila. Obstaja več pomembnih razlogov zakaj polieser:

    Je relatvino dostopen, njegova kemijska sestava je enostavna, ni oz. je zelo nizko toksičen, z njegovo proizvodnjo ne onesnažujemo okolja, lahko ga recikliramo, veliko produktov iz poliestra že obstaja.

    Zgodovina: Polister javnost prvič spozna leta 1951. Predstavljen je bil kot magična tkanina, ki se lahko nosi 68 dni in ševedno izgleda prezentativno. Leta 1958 Estman Chemical razvije novo obliko tkanine, trg se tako razširi.



    Opis: Mehka tkanina, ki jo radi povezujemo z plemenitostjo. Primeren je za festivale in praznovanja. Meheka bombažna tkanina ima unikatno rebrasto strukturo. Tanjši žameti se najpogosteje uporabljajo za oblačila sredi sezone, debelejši pa, za modne dodatke.
    Zgodovina: Zaradi komplicirane, cenovno dostopnejše produkcije, mehkobe in izgleda je bil v Evropi poznan kot material višjega sloja, je hkrati tudi lokacija od koder izvira. Dokazi o tkanini segajo že v leto 2000 pr.n.š., uporabljali naj bi ga Egipčani.



    Opis: Lahka, uravnotežena, prosojna tkanina ali gaza, podobna gosamerju, tkana iz nadomestnih krep (preje s krepkanjem). Zasuk v preji ustvari nekoliko bolj raztegljivo in grbo tkanino na dotik.
    Zgodovina: Beseda šifon izvira iz Francoščine, ki pomeni plašč. Primarno je iz bombaža, svile ali sintetičnih vlaken kot so najlon, rajon ali poliester. Najpogosteje se uproblja za izdelavo oblek in šalov. Material je bil ustvarjan iz svile dokler ni bil uveden najlon leta 1938.


    Mešani materiali: 

    Opis: Sestavljajo ga dva ali več materjalov, so gosti in neelastični, ponavadi so potiskani.
