Designing sustainable materials for the future

We offer cruelty-free and naturally biodegradable textiles that can mimic fabrics like leather, pleather, suede, latex, vinyl, and many more. TômTex is a revolutionary high performance bio-based material that emphasizes two key ingredients: mushrooms and shells from crustaceans like shrimp and crabs.

With a dedicated team of designers, scientists, and business people, we work at the intersection of design, chemistry, and biology to provide a radically sustainable material for everyone and every need.

Designing for Circularity

We are designing fabrics that do not rely on harmful construction. There's no toxic tanning or dyeing process, no petro-chemicals or plastics, and no harm done to the planet or people. We invest in circularity through our nature-driven design and our attention to responsibly sourcing our ingredients from manufacturers that respect people and the planet.

Rigorous science meets innovative design

TômTex is fully customizable. We offer designers creative freedom with fewer material constraints on size, pattern aesthetic, and scaling. And, our textile can suit the needs of nearly any industry.

From the Earth,
to us, and back

TômTex is a bio-based material that helps minimize environmental impact with our transparent practices: our tanning-free process, our focus on organic dyeing practices and recyclability, and being 100% biodegradable. We are fascinated by how nature recycles all its materials, and we work in collaboration with organic materials to develop textiles that contribute to circularity. It’s the only way forward.
