Comprising the ecology of textile production, human ecology, as well as the waste ecology, the textile ecology aims not to harm environment and people during all phases of the textile production, from fabric to garment production. Several processes are applied to textiles, before the end product is obtained. We are intending to take into consideration all phases of fabric and garment production, including the applied processes as well as the used materials and chemicals. The remaining consumers also have a role in the pollution chain of textile industry. Apparel products, purchased and used by consumers, contain chemicals harmful for the human health, and after washing, the environmental impact of these products is inevitable. In this study, we investigate the effects of textile materials harmful for the human health.
