Material, a category that sounds like it’s straight out of a construction site, is actually a fascinating trend to watch. Despite its bland, industrial-sounding name, the category covers everything from Crocs to electrical energy (and yes, we know which of the two you're more excited about). The trends within this category are divided among different subcategories such as goods and services, public markets, and diverse tools. Upon analyzing these trends, we can see a significant focus on sustainability and eco-friendliness, with electric batteries, electric vehicles, and water bottles consistently popping up. The clear message being sent- “save the planet without sacrificing style or function.” The Material category is not just for those who like to get their hands dirty, but for anyone who wants to stay up-to-date on what's new and important in fashion, technology, and environmentalism.
