About the Company

BioFluff is a biotech company that is creating a 100% plant-based and biodegradable fur to help the fashion industry replace animal farming and plastic fur. The company uses scalable process elements from three different industries: the fiber processing industry, the textile processing industry, and craftsmanship from the tanning industry.

Material

BioFluff produces 100% plant-based fur from plants that benefit the soil and are not cash crops.

Technology

BioFluff’s provisional patented technology uses plant fibers from several unusual fiber plants - organic in nature, and some from agricultural waste. They are augmented in a fiber pretreatment process to extract technical fibers that are indistinguishable from animal hair in length, shape, softness, and durability. These fibers are assembled with minor retrofitting of existing mechanical processes to mimic different types of animal hair. Lastly, they are finished to look, feel and function as animal hair for various applications.

Applications

Fashion, Footwear, Outwear, Home Goods, Automotive Interiors.
