Freshwater Free Fabrics

The salty alternative to cotton

Today, 350 million people worldwide risk losing access to freshwater. Our use of this resource is unsustainable and is only getting worse. One major consumer is the textiles industry where freshwater is used extensively in the production of fabrics. SaltyCo. grows salt-tolerant plants by irrigating them with seawater. We harvest the plants and extract their fibres before manufacturing a variety of natural textile offerings. This enables us to pioneer the worlds first woven, non-woven and stuffing products that are completely freshwater-free.
