Mymantra Srl has selected ETInnovation, a subsidiary of Emergent Technologies to act as the global licensing agent for its Ligneah technology.

“Ligneah is the first fashion and design material made from solid wood that offers the look, feel and performance of leather at a significantly lower production and environmental cost,” Emergent said in a press release.

Explaining the process, Emergent informed that to create this novel textile, cotton is adhered to a thin layer of wood veneer then subjected to a laser process, creating thousands of microcuts that soften and make it pliable.

“The result is a 100 per cent natural, beautiful, versatile, and cruelty-free fabric that has applications in fashion, furniture, and automotive, among other uses,” it added.

Ligneah uses only sustainably sourced wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to ensure that products come from responsibly managed forests.

Through its partnership with Tree Nation, Mymantra plants up to 400 new trees for each tree used in Ligneah material production.

Interior Design magazine recently named Ligneah as one of seven "super sustainable" materials becoming available to designers.

"We are excited to work with Mymantra and believe their innovative platform technology has great potential in many markets," Emergent CEO Thomas Harlan said.

"We share Mymantra's mission of providing eco-friendly, sustainable options to the growing number of conscious consumers seeking alternatives to animal and chemically derived products," he too added

Marcello Antonelli, CEO of Mymantra Srl said, "ETInnovation and Emergent Technologies are providing us with the licensing expertise and intellectual capital to launch Ligneah globally."

"We are confident this partnership will help us optimise the economic and environmental value proposition of Ligneah,” Antonelli observed.

ETInnovation is evaluating corporate partners interested in licensing the Ligneah technology on either an exclusive on non-exclusive basis for specific geographic regions.

Emergent Technologies is an innovation solutions company that assists entrepreneurs, researchers, and start-ups commercialise and license breakthrough technologies.

Mymantra Srl is an innovative Italian start-up company with a strong commitment to environmental sustainability that develops novel materials that are eco-friendly, cruelty-free and sustainable. (AR)
