Dawn of a new material age.
Starting with our first biofabricated materials brand ZoaTM, we’re inspired by all the aspects of leather we cherish: suppleness, breathability, and patina, while innovating new aesthetics and performance characteristics. Our unique biofabrication process applies the performance of synthetic polymers to the building blocks of nature. The result? The world’s first bioleather materials made without animals.
Unique Material Properties
Our bioleather materials expand design possibilities. ‘Tunable’ materials that can take any shape - a liquid, a solid, a textile with unique new characteristics.
Bioleather materials produced in precise sizes and shapes. Reliable quality at volume. Waste reduced by up to 80%.
Better for the planet
We are committed to producing animal-free materials that are thoughtfully sourced and have a lighter footprint on our planet. Each element of our process considers not only the desirability of our materials, but also their environmental impact. Today, our process is still in development, but we anticipate it having advantages over livestock production in terms of land, water usage and CO2 emissions. We are using Life Cycle Analysis to guide our development to ensure that our process is optimized to be maximally efficient and as environmentally friendly as possible.
We believe biofabrication will transform consumer products starting with materials like leather.Andras Forgacs, Co-Founder and CEO
