About

We revolutionize the fashion industry by making it circular. Not only do we fight end-consumer waste but also overproduction, defects and losses along the textile value chain by revalorizing it and creating back a 100% virgin fiber, and this endlessly. If circularity through upcycling is our main goal, sustainability is integrated at each step of our life cycle, from raw material production to the end-product. This allows our fiber to have a global environmental impact 60% lower than cotton, the most used natural material in the textile industry. We guarantee that every collected clothes made from NOOSA will be recycled back into a virgin fiber. The recycling process uses no harmful chemicals and is FDA approved (in other words, it is safe for human beings to drink our solvents). On top of being circular, our fiber has great intrinsic properties such as increased breathability, low odor retention and UV stability. Those properties ensure a performant product designed to last, therefore reducing consumption and educating customer to buy more consciously and responsibly. Lastly, NOOSA preserves biodiversity and human livings, both in oceans and on earth. NOOSA solves the problem of microplastics ending up in oceans and tap water, since it can be ingested and digested by human livings. Our fiber is also biodegradable meaning that it will eventually disappear from oceans, should it get out NOOSA loop.
