Human Material Loop is a material innovation company, founded in the Netherlands.
"Together we can reduce soil degradation, water pollution, toxic poisoning, and put an end to the microplastic pollution that comes from wearing and washing polyester garments," said Human Material Loop.

Human Material Loop develops technologies, materials and products from waste human hair to deliver high-performing products for the textile industry with zero negative impact on the environment.

"Our mission is to cut the pollution of the textile industry by integrating a new biowaste into the production system," said Human Material Loop. "Human hair is the same keratin protein fibre as wool, let's use this waste stream to develop new materials for a sustainable future."

This project has been shortlisted in the material innovation category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
