Next Generation, Biodegradable Graphene Textiles

 

About us

Conservative estimates suggest >100,000 plastic microfibres are shed with every wash of a single garment. But mechanically, these materials are extremely high-performing and long-lasting.

Materials are the next frontier of innovation, and the technology that is emerging now has the potential to solve these problems.

Graphene is one such technology, being 200x stronger than steel and extremely light at the same time. Nanoloom produces biodegradable fibre from BioHastalex, made from wonder material graphene using a unique method. It can mechanically outperform other materials, and is biodegradable and recyclable.

Its applications span numerous diverse industries.
