Kelsun™ fiber is seaweed-based and has a significantly lower environmental footprint than conventional fibers. Seaweed is one of the most regenerative organisms on our planet and absorbs carbon dioxide in the ocean, similar to trees on land. We create Kelsun using an abundant biopolymer found in seaweed, harnessing the renewable power of our ocean’s resources.
We pair seaweed’s biopolymers with green chemistry to create proprietary, drop-in solutions for existing yarn and textile production infrastructure. Our process is grounded in the use and creation of clean, non-toxic inputs and outputs, minimizing our footprint while maximizing the positive impact on our planet.
The end result is Kelsun, a bio-based material that can be used across the textile industry.
