We work hard to advance apparel industry with biotechnology.

Biomaterial

We design at the intersection of biology and technology. We extract biopolymers from low energy consuming organisms, and we turn that biopolymer into biodegradable textiles. The ultimate goal is to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emission and toxic waste created by textile productions.

Bioprinter

We customize and design machines, such as 3D printer to complement biomaterial, because we imagine in the future, most of the manufacturing process will be automated by robots.

About

We wanted to find a way to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and toxic waste created during textile manufacturing. We see significant improvements in sustainable energy production, but not a lot in sustainable textile and apparel production. We worked with a form of a polysaccharide called alginate, which is found in the cell walls of brown algae. By extruding the alginate into calcium chloride, we created biodegradable filaments that they treated like yarn, knitting them by hand into a textile.
