Bio Nano Cellulose in Textiles

Bio Nanocellulose is an insoluble substance, which is the main component of plant cell walls and plant fibers. Microbial Nanocellulose is produced by bacteria, characterized by its high purity, resistance and greater water retention capacity. Microbial Nanocellulose is processed from sugars and microorganisms, it takes a period of 2 weeks to grow.

The production of Microbial Bio Nanocellulose starts from microorganisms. When Nanocellulose dries, it becomes a material that can be molded, with precise geometry, and can be grown from a variety of organic raw materials and pigments. In addition, the Nanocellulose is grown in a mesh created with natural fibers, which further reinforces it.

Wearing clothes is a uniquely human characteristic. As our ancestors migrated to colder climates, they used animal skins and vegetation for protection from the weather. One can only thank our genius ancestors for coming up with the brilliant idea of wearing animal skin as a coat!

Over time, we have grown accustomed to wearing clothing as an extension of our skin, and traditional materials such as leather, silk, cotton, and wool—all products of nature—became the norm for textiles we wear. we use on a daily basis.

However, over the course of the 20th century we have replaced these natural materials with their synthetic counterparts (such as nylon and polyester, because they are easier to produce and can be more precisely engineered). These synthetic materials pollute and create vast amounts of waste: our fashion industry today is responsible for ten percent of all CO2 emissions.

It is promising that a new wave of designers has emerged to tackle these problems, making clever use of biology. By combining biology and design in the textile industry, we can now create products that adapt, grow, and repair themselves. We focus on the most innovative designers, who are radically revolutionizing the fashion industry around the world.

Bio Nanocellulose in the textile industry

Nanocellulose is an indispensable part of our daily life. It abounds in wood, coconut cream and vegetable fibers, it is used as a textile raw material. Today, almost all sustainable materials include cellulose components. Among them are textiles.

Uses of Nanocellulose in the textile industry

Imagine that you can grow your own clothes using bacterial Nanocellulose, and microorganisms that can convert the ingredients into ecological fibers.

Las fibras de la Nano celulosa miden aproximadamente de 10 nm, son muy rígidas, resistentes, porosas y con una estructura nanofibrilar numerosa. teniendo en cuenta estas propiedades, la Nano celulosa bacteriana se utiliza en la industria textil, para la fabricación de: Bolsos, zapatos, vestidos, camisas, pantalones y chaquetas.

Nanocellulose fibers measure approximately 10 nm, are very rigid, resistant, porous and have a numerous nanofibrillar structure. Taking these properties into account, bacterial Nanocellulose is used in the textile industry, for the manufacture of: Bags, shoes, dresses, shirts, pants and jackets.

A range of prototypes have been developed from the leather-like material, but the goal goes beyond the production of individual pieces. "Lab-grown materials will have a real impact on the textile and fashion industry." Over time, the material should be alive while we use it, nourishing and protecting our bodies.
