AlgiKnit is a biomaterials research group based in New York. We develop wearable textiles from readily abundant biopolymers.
We aim to operate in a closed loop product lifecycle, utilizing materials with a significantly lower environmental footprint than conventional textiles, bringing sustainable bio-based textile alternatives to the footwear and apparel industries.
