Company details

Bucha Bio creates novel biomaterials grown by fermenting infinitely renewable bacterial-nanocellulose. Strands of natural fibers interlock to form high-performance textiles and composites with advanced performance and luxuriously soft handfeel. Produced in weeks rather than months or years, Bucha Bio products find use in premium applications instead of animal leather, polyurethane, latex, vinyl, epoxy, and so much more.
