YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2024-07-10 16:42:23 – Japan

Japanese biotechnology company Spiber has formed strategic partnerships with renowned Italian mills Marzotto, Filatura Papi Fabio, and RD Gruppo Florence to incorporate its innovative Brewed Protein fibres.

Brewed Protein, developed by Spiber, is derived from plant-based biomass such as sugar cane and agricultural waste. The company utilizes a proprietary fermentation process to create polymers that can be converted into various textile forms.

Giorgio Todesco, CEO of Marzotto Wool Manufacturing, said, "We are proud of this ambitious partnership that confirms Marzotto's attitude and commitment to sustainability: the real, tangible, and certified kind. We have always focused on natural and precious materials such as wool and we have found it interesting to embrace this project by Spiber Inc. This is a further step forward combining tradition and textile art with technological research [to] narrate an ancient art in a modern but especially in a sustainable way."

These collaborations aim to leverage Spiber's sustainable technology, offering an eco-friendly alternative to traditional materials in the textile industry.
