AlgiKnit; sustainable textile materials for the future
AlgiKnit aims to offer an alternative circular economy approach rooted in ecological intelligence, natural dye practices, and biomaterials innovation. We aim to operate in a closed-loop product lifecycle, utilizing materials with a significantly lower environmental footprint than conventional agricultural or petroleum-based textiles (e.g. cotton and polyester). Our goal is to bring sustainable bio-based textile alternatives into the 21st Century footwear and apparel industries.
In our first CHASING GENIUS Challenge, we solicited ideas around three critical issues—environmental sustainability, global health, and feeding our growing population. View the winners and explore all ideas below.
