First came natural materials like cotton, silk, and leather.

Then the chemical revolution brought us synthetics like: Nylon, Rayon, and Spandex.

These new materials brought great, powerful properties, but at a tremendous environmental cost.

83% of drinking water samples worldwide tested positive for microscopic plastic fibers.

Now, we are returning to natural technology to grow materials with the new powerful properties uniquely
born from biology.

How does it work?

Currently produced at Ecovative’s manufacturing facility.

GrowGrown in Green Island by Ecovative, TextileBio is designed to scale in existing solid state incubation systems, including high volume manufacturing facilities like Mushroom Farms.

ProductsOur material can be used by existing tanneries to add color and other treatment, and by designers and brands to turn our bio-textile into finished products.

Scalable ModelOur model leverages a manufacturing base that stretches around the globe. This manufacturing base has proven production economics and extensive capacity which we aim to leverage for the growth of this product using our organism and technology.
