From Field to Fibre
Phase 1: Opening the pods
To discover the silky fibre inside the pod, the membrane of the envelope is dried and opened in order to allow the extraction of the material.
The seeds and fibres are gently separated to protect the structural integrity of the long fibres. This gentle operation is performed using a process created by Vegeto.
Phase 3: Blending of Fibres
The plant-based components such as milkweed and kapok plant fibres are blended and assembled with the biopolymer (PLA).
Phase 4: Shaping
The last step is the assembly of the components resulting in a ready-to-use non-woven raw material.
Milkweed thrives on arid land and helps preserve soil.
