Nanollose Limited is pleased to provide more information around the successful creation of a test garment made from the Company’s Nullarbor(TM) fibre.
This marks the first time a piece of clothing has been made using our Tree-Free rayon fibre, and is a drastic departure from clothing made from traditional rayon fibre that comes from environmentally challenging wood pulp processing.
The garment was created using the latest 3D sweater-knit technology, with the fibre performing extremely well and successfully withstanding the industrial manufacturing process. This milestone is a significant step in Nanollose’s journey from converting it’s Nullarbor fibre into a piece of clothing, validating that the Company’s technology could offer a commercially viable, eco-friendly manufacturing solution for the clothing industry who are urgently seeking alternatives to rayon and cotton fibres. Furthermore, throughout all steps the fibre, fabric and garment were produced using standard industrial equipment currently used by textile and clothing manufacturers.
Nanollose Managing Director Alfie Germano said “This garment represents another world first achievement for the company and takes us a step closer to offering global clothing and textile manufactures with a sustainable fibre alternative. The textile and fashion industry are very sensory and tactile, to them seeing and touching is believing, so having the ability to produce garments will assist in securing commercial and development agreements. We now plan on refining our fibre-to-garment manufacturing process by implementing critical learnings uncovered during the process, with work already underway to create a showcase garment for clothing and textile groups.
