C-FIBER™

Our seaweed fiber fabrics are made from a blend of organic cotton yarns and lyocell, embedded with seaweed particles.

Why we use it

Semi-synthetic fibers are biochemically processed to reconstitute hardwood tree cellulose (a sugar molecule that gives trees their strength) to create a functional, sustainable material. Although chemically identical to natural cellulose (like cotton and linen consist of), this innovative process allows us to harness the renewable properties that trees provide.

Our Seaweed Fiber is made using a patented process that embeds seaweed particles firmly within lyocell fiber.

Lyocell is a fabric that embodies complete circularity, beginning and ending in nature.

Our lyocell is 95% harvested from eucalyptus trees and the remaining 5% from spruce, acacia and beech trees. Eucalyptus grows quickly without irrigation, pesticides or fertilizers, and can be grown on arid land. The lyocell is made through a closed loop production system, using a process that recycles water and reuses up to 99% of the solvent used. This creates very little waste and results in a fiber that biodegrades in water, landfills and composting environments.

Industry Problem

Right now, the apparel industry has a large carbon footprint that contributes to an extremely high amount of air pollution worldwide. We want to do our part to move the industry forward with new innovative technologies and responsible solutions—that’s where AIR-INK® comes in.

Our Solution

We’re revolutionizing how we use ink—one product at a time. This technology turns air pollution particles into water-based black ink, used to print our logo and text blocks in our latest capsule. The more we support new carbon capture and recycling technologies like AIR-INK®, the more we support our planet.

What is AIR-INK ®?

AIR-INK® is a carbon-capture technology that captures air pollution particles and diverts harmful substances from the air we breathe. The particles are turned into different grades of inks, dispersions and coatings. For this capsule the captured air particles were turned into safe, water-based inks.

Seaweed Fiber

This fiber is derived from saltwater seaweed which grows abundantly in a natural ocean habitat. This avoids traditional farming aggressors such as the use of pesticides, excessive water and land. The fiber created is lightweight, absorbs moisture faster than cotton and retains some active algae nutrients. At the end of the garment's life, it biodegrades seamlessly.
