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).
