Climafibre United Kingdom

Modular materials made entirely from sunflowers

Imagine a rain jacket made entirely from sunflowers. Climafibre uses sunflowers to develop textiles, dyes and a hydropic coating for the fashion industry that support regenerative food systems, protect biodiversity and aid climate mitigation. Using enzymes, Climafibre is the first to develop a unique process to isolate cellulose fibres from sunflower stems, which are then spun into yarns. The hydrophobic coating is made from a by-product of the sunflower oil industry, providing protection for natural fibres. Pigments are extracted from various parts of the plant, and used as natural dyes.
