Polybion has developed Celium®, a cellulose-based leather alternative.
Polybion creates and grows premium, next-generation materials designed with nature and manufactured with biology.
"Our mission is to bring performance and possibility to 21st-century designers and material engineers," told Polybion. "We use waste as a raw material and design, produce, and finish our bioassembled products under the same roof to increase sustainability and drive the circular economy."
Polybion's first product, Celium® is a bacterial cellulose-based, high-performance leather substitute.
Celium® is a premium alternative to animal-based leather and petroleum-derived synthetics composed of bacterial cellulose.
"We industrialised cellular agriculture to biofabricate Celium® [by] combining material science with bioengineering," added Polybion.
