The use of sustainable fibers in clothing is important, given the growing consequences of climate change. Many designers continuously seek out to work with eco-conscious, flexible, and performance-driven materials. Werewool is one such innovation that works to mitigate the industry's environmental impact.
Werewool has been working on a new "revolutionary fiber development platform to create biodegradable fibers with tailored aesthetic and performance properties." The team behind the groundbreaking textile is taking inspiration from nature and utilizing tools of biotechnology to reach an actionable result. The fibers are being designed "at the DNA level" and the developers are keeping the demands of today's consumers in mind—from aesthetic values such as color to more functional conveniences such as moisture management and stretch.
