Almost from the moment of our birth, clothing acts as our second skin, yet we rarely consider where our clothes come from, or the effects they might have on the environment. This beautifully photographed is about easily achievable ways to care for the planet by living a little simpler regarding cloth and clothing.

Get a handle on how cloth consumption affects nature on a larger scale. Look at what textiles are really made from, and examine their properties with an emphasis on those derived from natural sources.

In no time you'll have the tools to make informed choices regarding clothing--including deciding how much clothing a person really needs.

Second Skin also covers how to mend and maintain clothing, re-purpose fashion, dye clothing, and when all else fails, what it takes to patch, piece, and felt.
