About

I.

The dark side of Fashion and Textiles soars high in its massive environmental footprint. ‘What’s in our clothes?’ is an important question – for instance, polyester is plastic and a kilogram of cotton gulps thousands of liters of water.

Finding better alternatives is the hour’s need.

II.

On other hand, we have been wasting renewable resources like Agricultural residue and biomass. In many cases, it is burnt only to cause more air pollution. Waste is waste, only till we don’t put it to use.

And we put it to use.

III.

We bridge these problems with science and innovation. We convert agricultural waste into sustainable and environment friendly yarns and fibres. We are bringing materials of the future to wardrobes today.

We are AltMat.
