Fabrics from the living
When bacteria, wine and fermentation process come together to create a new wine material. We enter the era of fermented fashion with beautiful illustrations below.
Description of the wine textile
This wine textile is a biomaterial obtained from the treatment of lignocellulose and the oils contained in the grape marc : a totally vegetable raw material composed of grape skins, stems and steeds from the production of the wine.
This innovative biomaterial is compatible with all fashion and design applications, to meet the environmental needs of today, and it is also cruelty-free (non-violent towards animals).
The material obtained is a non-woven material that can be dyed and assembled with other materials. Today, many accessories can be made with this material, such as headbands (photo below).
From 26 billion litres of wine a year produced worldwide, it is possible to use 7 billion kilograms of grape marc for a potential annual production of 3 billion square meters of this new textile.
