Company Details

The increasing rise in consumer awareness of the textile industry’s environmental footprint on the planet has catalyzed interest in novel biomaterials as a way to upcycle production waste, reduce reliance on synthetic fossil fuel-based materials, and curb significant greenhouse gas emissions. Bucha Bio is disrupting the $961 billion global textile manufacturing market by delivering a plant-based leather made from kombucha bacterial nanocellulose, which competes with animal and synthetic leathers on its strength, durability, and suitability for products in fashion, furniture, and upholstery. Bucha Bio’s leather combines a unique consortium of bacteria with an infinitely scalable production process, delivering a competitive biomaterial that can be produced in weeks and customized with over 2,000 plant-based ingredients and 1,000 natural dyes to fit the needs of any application.
