Natural Fiber Welding (NFW) is dedicated to revolutionizing the materials industry. It develops technologies based on the sustainable use of plants and natural fibres to create beautiful durable goods and textiles. Its technologies broaden the spectrum of what is possible from nature's strength and diversity. Using scientific breakthroughs, it enables natural fibres to be shaped and moulded at the molecular level in order to unlock performance previously only possible using synthetics.

We are scaling multiple pluripotent manufacturing platforms that produce highly tunable performance materials using abundant natural raw inputs. We are enabling humanity to break its addiction to synthetic plastics. Remaking our material world from regeneratively sourced agriculture is the future.
