“Manufacturing a luxury-ecological fabric from vegetal wastes to support the most vulnerable women in Cambodia.”, this challenge has already been taken up by SAMATOA LOTUS TEXTILES. Indeed, we up-cycle today 500 tons of lotus stems waste each year to manufacture 2,000 meters of pure lotus textile, a high quality, luxury and ecological textile.
And because we are constantly innovating, we want to break new ground in 2018 with the Lotus Tec®, a revolutionary fibre composite made from the up-cycling of our production’s wastes – the lotus stems – and the up-cycling of Nike’s wastes, in a perfect circular economy.
Thanks to the 400 tons of new disposal lotus stems wastes generated by our manufacturing process, we would be able to create 150,000 meters of an affordable revolutionary, technical, composite textile. To do so, we’d like to combine this natural waste with existing Nike Grind materials, to transform limited resources into unlimited potential.
With the new innovative fibre, we will provide textile designers and fashion brands with the first TAILOR MADE fabric. A fashion brand is looking for fabric with certain properties for a specific application? We take care of finding the right fibres combination to reach this perfect fabric.
