With a long career in the fashion and textile industry the BIORESTORE Team understand all sides of the journey from fibre to finished goods across design, innovation, and sustainability from brand to customer demands, with BIORESTORE being formulated on the basis of the growing textile / garment to waste post-consumer crisis.
This Award Winning Patent-Pending innovation has the power to disrupt the entire fashion industry, making second-hand garments look brand new, decreasing the desire to shop new items, and prolonging the lives of our wardrobe heroes, through to prevention of garments to landfill.
What if you could stop used clothes from ending up in dumpsters and instead capture the value of their precious raw materials? Regenerate them into beautiful, new, textile fibers that look and feel like cotton. That’s what Infinited Fiber Company’s technology does. It turns cellulose-rich materials – like old clothes, used carboard, or rice straw – into unique, biodegradable soft fibers: Infinna™.
Founded in Finland in 2016, Infinited Fiber Company is on a mission to make circularity in textiles an everyday reality. The regenerated Infinna™ fiber is currently created out of 100% post-consumer textile waste. It has been proven to work beautifully on its own for 100% regenerated yarns and fabrics and to blend easily with other fibers.
THE NEW COTTON PROJECT
The New Cotton Project is an EU-funded consortium of brands, manufacturers, suppliers, innovators, and research institutes, set to demonstrate and define a blueprint for circular fashion. Infinited Fiber Company is leading the project, which also aims to inspire further, even bigger circular initiatives in the industry.
Human activities in the ocean is unlimited, yet the self-healing ability of the marine ecosystem is limited. InResST is a low-carbon , environmentally friendly company that focuses on the feasibility research, development, production and promotion of ocean plastics used in textiles.
InResST recycled nylon staple fiber products are mainly derived from ghost fishing nets, generated by deep-sea fishery activities, recycling by a mechanical way which are then produced by a zero-carbon factory. Its performance is very similar to virgin nylon and can be directly applied to all types of yarns and fabrics. Our mission is to reduce carbon emissions, reduce dependence on oil, protect marine life, protect the marine environment, and clean up microplastic pollution in the ocean. We hope to cooperate with environmentally-conscious brands and manufacturers to develop, innovate, and work together to protect the environment as well as the ocean.
