Best sustainable fabrics?

Can anyone help on this one? We know that cotton uses vast amounts of water and pesticides in its production, even organic cotton uses lots of water. So can petrochemical fabrics ever be environmentally better? Some artificial fabrics are very long lasting and dry fast saving energy on clothes drying. Anyone know the answer?

Overview

Throw-away fashion at throw-away prices also throws away resources, energy, and water (2,700 litres of water to make one t-shirt, over 5000 to make one pair of jeans), can be horrendously polluting in the use of pesticides, bleaches and dyes, often underpays or exploits farmers and factory workers, and fills up the landfill with rotting fabrics that release greenhouse gasses. So, we need to do it differently.
