Nanollose has made a test garment using its Nullarbor fibre, marking the first time clothing has been created using its tree-free rayon fibre. This is in contrast to the clothing made from traditional rayon fibre that is produced through environment challenging wood pulp processing. The garment was created using the latest 3D sweater-knit technology.

The development marks validation of commercial fibre-to-garment technology.

The fibre performed extremely well and successfully withstood the industrial manufacturing process.

This milestone is a significant step in Nanollose's journey from converting its Nullarbor fibre into a piece of clothing, validating that the company's technology could offer a commercially viable, eco-friendly manufacturing solution for the clothing industry which is seeking alternatives to rayon and cotton fibres.

Throughout all steps the fibre, fabric and garment were produced using standard industrial equipment currently used by textile and clothing manufacturers.

Nanollose managing director Alfie Germano said; "This garment represents another world first achievement for the company and takes us a step closer to offering global clothing and textile manufactures with a sustainable fibre alternative. The textile and fashion industry are very sensory and tactile, to them seeing and touching is believing, so having the ability to produce garments will assist in securing commercial and development agreements. We now plan on refining our fibre-to-garment manufacturing process by implementing critical learnings uncovered during the process, with work already underway to create a showcase garment for clothing and textile groups.

Nanollose has been recognised as a next generation solution provider by Canopy, a global leader in forest conservation. Canopy works to protect the world's forests, species and climate by collaborating with business leaders, scientists and decision-makers to help create sustainable supply chains and foster innovative solutions to environmental challenges.

Canopy works with over 750 of the forest industry's largest customers, from book publishers and printers to leading clothing brands and fashion designers, to help shape their purchasing practices and create permanent solutions for the world's threatened forests. (SV)
