70% of apparel fibers are manufactured with incredibly efficient melt-spinning machines – but no prior materials innovation has been able to work on these machines and tap their low-cost economics. Bloom Labs is the first in the world to do so. Bloom Labs upcycles waste protein to thermomeltable pellets, which are then made into polyester replacements on industry-standard melt-spun machines, found on every textile factory floor. Founded by a third-generation textile entrepreneur, Bloom Labs reduces the environmental footprint of apparel without compromising functional specs and performance.
