As pioneers in biofabrication, we introduce a new material built with proteins and bio-based polymers. In a time of increasing concern about the effects of climate change, Zi™ offers brands a climate positive solution without having to compromise their creativity.
Zi™ is made from a unique Bio-Alloy™ designed to maximize performance and sustainability at the molecular level. For those looking to go animal-free and reduce the usage of virgin plastic, Zi provides an uncompromised solution.
Zi™ is a material that is abrasion-resistant, water-resistant, and durable, providing long-lasting performance. Zi also retains its shape and resists creasing for maximum comfort on the move.
Our holistic approach to sustainability allows us to remain steadfast to our principles while simultaneously meeting the specific goals of our customers.
Zi™ reduces GHG emissions by an estimated 80% compared to traditional chrome-tanned leathers and by an estimated 30% compared to conventional synthetic materials.
Zi’s Bio-Alloys™ reduce fossil-derived inputs by more than 50% compared to synthetic materials.
No animal products are used in our material or processing. Zi is a plant-derived biofabricated material.
Zi is built to last, supporting circularity by reducing production and end-of-life waste.
