Description of the textile in wine

This wine textile is a biomaterial obtained from the processing of lignocellulose and oils contained in grape marc: a totally vegetable raw material composed of grape skins, stems and seeds from wine production.

This innovative biomaterial is compatible with all fashion and design applications to meet today’s environmental needs, and it is also cruelty-free.

The resulting material is a nonwoven that can be dyed and combined with other materials. Today, many accessories can be made with this material, such as headbands (photo below).

Market opportunities

From 26 billion liters of wine per year produced worldwide, 7 billion kilograms of grape marc can be used for a potential annual production of 3 billion square meters of this new textile.
