OUR FIRST BIOFABRICATED COATED TEXTILE
Bio-Tex™ is the first product powered by Bio-AlloyTM technology, a coated textile that delivers superior color vibrancy and performance while reducing GHG emissions by over 90% compared to traditional, chrome-tanned leather, based on an LCA. Bio-TexTM is a material system comprised of a Bio-AlloyTM coating applied on a fabric backing, creating unparalleled flexibility for designers in color, haptics, and more.
Bio-Tex™ is a certified biobased product under the USDA BioPreferred® Program.
BioFabbrica is a joint venture partnership between Modern Meadow and world-renowned Italian textile and materials supplier, Limonta. Experience Bio-Tex™ products from:
VEGAN ENGINEERED RENEWABLE ALTERNATIVE
Bio-VERA™ is a novel, sustainable, animal-free biomaterial that looks, feels, and naturally ages like traditional leather, suede, or chamois. Powered by Bio-Alloy™, sustainable and solvent-free, Bio-VERA™ eliminates animal-based inputs in favor of renewable, traceable inputs. Available in rolls, Bio-VERA™ requires no special preservation or storage conditions and is readily available at scale with reduced manufacturing complexity and costs.
This non-woven material is engineered to surpass the strength of leather while delivering the authentic look, feel, and wearability of traditional leather. With an extensive range of colors and finishing options, Bio-VERA™ redefines possibilities in both durability and aesthetics.
• Design Freedom with Less Waste
• Over 90% Sustainable Content Prior to Finishing
• Stronger than Leather
• Simplifies Supply Chain
• Available on Demand
• Frees Net Working Capital
• Vegan & Animal-Free
Fast Resource Efficient Enhanced Dyeing process
Bio-FREEDTM is a one-step, foam-based highly efficient dyeing system that uses 95% less water, 75% less energy, 80% less dyes and chemicals, and no salts compared to traditional dyeing. With Bio-FREED™, textiles of any fiber type can be dyed with reactive or acid dyes with no color limitation or migration at 10x faster speeds. Bio-FREEDTM brings sustainable innovation and a minimized environmental footprint to the textile manufacturing process.
• No Color Limitations
• No Color Migration
• Dyeable with Reactive and Acid Dyes
• Dyeable on Any Fiber
• 10X Faster
• One Step Process for Blends Dyeing
• High Bio Content Enabler (>50%)
• High Throughput with Low Carbon Footprint
Waterproof & Breathable Membrane
Bio-Tex Shield™ is a high performance, bio-based waterproof breathable membrane with reduced material inputs and enhanced durability. Its high abrasion resistance eliminates the need for an additional textile outer layer, allowing for either a 2-layer skin-out or traditional 3-layer system construction. Bio-Tex ShieldTM is produced without PFAs or solvents.
• Lightweight for comfort & creative freedom
• Dyeable with enhanced color spectrum
• High bio-renewable content (>60%)
• Solvent & PFA Free
All of our biofabrication technologies are developed by scientists at our lab in New Jersey and produced at existing manufacturing facilities that are vetted through a rigorous process to ensure sustainable and fair practices. Modern Meadow scales our technologies by partnering with best-in-class product developers, suppliers, and manufacturers (including Limonta and Singtex) who share our values around performance and sustainability to enable adoption and real-world impact. We work with partners who have proven know-how and expertise so we all benefit from existing infrastructure and in doing so accelerate our impact. Our close relationship with development partners and production facilities allows brands partnering with Modern Meadow to feel confident knowing our products are 100% traceable from Lab-to-Brand™.
Modern Meadow Bio-Alloy™ technology is composed of a unique alloy of proteins and bio-based polymers that offers unparalleled performance. Our materials and claims have been lab-tested, verified, and paired with state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities.
We know we cannot shift dependence away from petrochemical and animal-based inputs alone. If you are working in product or supply chain innovation and are in search of more sustainable solutions, let’s start a conversation.
