Uyen Tran: Sustainable Textiles That Could Change the Future of the Fashion
Uyen: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! TômTex is a revolutionary bio-based material, created from two key ingredients: seashell waste and mushrooms. The company’s vision is a cruelty-free and eco-friendly alternative to synthetic and animal leathers. It is made from 100% bio-based ingredients and natural colors without tanning process or backing fabric. At the end of life, TômTex products can be disassembled and fed back into TômTex production or fully biodegradable in a natural environment. We not only use various wastes as raw material inputs, but the production of TômTex also consumes significantly less water, energy, and land use compared to the standard production of synthetic or animal leather.
