SEAWEED - WHEN THE FABRIC MEETS THE OCEAN

When most people think of sustainable textiles their mind goes straight to cotton, hemp or bamboo but there´s the constant search for other alternatives. Seaweed - the plant you know mainly from the beaches and Asian cuisine serves as an amazing foundation for fabric production, too!

SeaCellTM is a high-tech, patented eco-friendly process, developed by the incredibly innovative teams at SmartfiberAG and Lenzing. The process, which takes place at Lenzing in Austria, “embeds the seaweed firmly within a natural cellulose fiber resulting in the positive properties of seaweed being permanently preserved within the fiber.”
