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.
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 patent-pending, non-polluting method that uses entirely renewable consumables.
We partner with fashion brands who share our sustainability vision, to ensure the garments are sustainable and remain recyclable.
Our fibre is biodegradable on land and sea, compostable and recyclable with other natural textiles such as cotton.
