At present, Spinnova is the only company in the world that is able to convert pulp directly into textile fibre without chemical solvents. Marimekko’s involvement helps the end products fulfil the industry’s quality and sustainability requirements. With Spinnova-developed technology, pulp can be spun into textile fibre without chemical processing. The method is considerably less of a strain on the environment than viscose or cotton production. The manufacturing of textile fibre spun with Spinnova’s method consumes some 99 per cent less water than cotton production. A fabric made with Spinnova fibre can be reused, recycled or composted, which further reduces the product’s environmental footprint.
"We believe that cooperation between the textile industry and innovative companies such as Spinnova is the key in bringing new materials to the market. We have been involved in material research for years and have paid close attention to developments in this area. It is great to see that such globally significant expertise and technology needed for material development exist in Finland," said Tiina Alahuhta-Kasko, president and chief executive officer of Marimekko.
"The textile industry’s view is pivotal in developing and commercialising our product. We see our cooperation with Marimekko providing us with the valuable expert knowledge and industry know-how that we need to help us expedite the global commercialisation of our ecological product," said Janne Poranen, chief executive officer of Spinnova.
