We understand that we can’t do this alone. The materials challenge is present everywhere but sadly, the technology is not and that is why we share our journey from farm to material.
First, we collect agricultural waste from farms and in some cases sugarcane bagasse processing plants. This waste includes but is not limited to pineapple leaves, corn husks, and sugarcane bagasse.
Next, we use a proprietary process to break down the waste into its constituent fibres. These fibres are then spun into yarn, which is then woven into the material.
The whole process used a closed-loop production system ensuring that we significantly reduce the amount of resources we use with up to 99 less water use and slashing emissions by close to 80%.
Our material is 100% biodegradable and compostable. It is also soft, comfortable, and durable.
We believe that agro-waste has the potential to revolutionize the textile industry. Our technology can help to reduce our reliance on petroleum-based synthetics and create a more sustainable future.
