This New Material Made From Seaweed May Be What You're Wearing Next Season

By Aimee Lutkin

A start up called Algiknit is experimenting with creating textiles made from sustainable materials. Their co-founder, fashion design graduate Aleksandra Gosiewski, told Creative Bloq that fashion is one of the most polluting industries in the world. Alginit's goal is to limit the waste created by textile production. 

The company is taking kelp and turning it into "bioyarn" that can be woven together to make products. Use of the biodegradable yard could potentially reduce microplastic pollution and reduce landfill waste made from fabrics that don't easily degrade, like polyester.
