fibe

We make sustainable fibres for textiles out of potato waste. Our material uses 99.7% less water, no additional land and produces 82% less CO2e than cotton. Let's make fashion better.

Do you know what you are wearing?

Cotton, polyester and others like wool, silk and viscose make up the majority of the world’s textile production and while they might be used in your favourite clothing their environmental impact cannot be understated. Fashion is the second most polluting industry after oil, contributing to much of the world's fresh water and natural resource consumption. As the world population continues to increase this problem is only set to worsen.

Our revolutionary textile fibe P1

Our solution is to create a brand new sustainable textile made completely out of a waste stream. We predict our material will not only be sustainably ground-breaking but have excellent material properties:

Strong

Our material is durable whilst being soft to the touch.

Renewable

Our plant waste stream amounts to over 260 million tonnes each year.

Anti-microbial

The compound that makes the crop inedible makes it antimicrobial.

Affordable

Being able to retrofit into existing textile infrastructure makes our production cheap.

Our network

fibe has gained huge momentum since its beginning, building a strong support network in fashion, agriculture and material research institutions.

The loop

Potato waste is inedible and difficult to compost, so farmers resort to pulverisation, incineration and leaving them out to rot. Instead, we use this waste.

We then extract fibres from this material using a proven, non-polluting method that uses entirely renewable consumables.

We partner with fashion brands who share our sustainability vision, to ensure the garments are sustainably dyed and remain recyclable.

PataCel textile is biodegradable on land and sea, compostable and recyclable with other natural textiles such as cotton.
