WITH THE HELP OF SCIENCE
LaVeg™ is where nature, science, and technology come together to build better solutions.
This new fashion biomaterial is uniquely engineered, with a singular blend and construction. It’s made of plants, not oil. It is vegan, breaks down naturally, and is 100% biodegradable.
We are proud to say that rubber extraction is an energy-efficient, regenerative, traditional, and natural process. The farmers tap the rubber trees to collect the latex, a white and milky liquid. This technique preserves the tree's productivity for more than 30 years.
We then follow three main steps in our production process, starting with a full analysis of the latex to assure its quality. The natural latex is then prepared with our patented chemical
formulation - a non-toxic pigment that penetrates and binds to the material to grant it a rich, vibrant colour.
We finish it by pouring and dispersing the latex formulation over the cotton fabric. Our process is heavy metals-free and generates no water waste or liquid residue. Any solid residues are recycled by our partners or used as a filler for furniture or other products.
The craftsmanship behind this innovative biomaterial will become visible with every product you make.
LaVegTM comes in three different thicknesses, in plain and texturized finishings to support varied uses in Fashion, Accessories, Footwear, Sportswear, Interior Design, and Furniture.
It is available in basic colours, such as Black, Coffee, Caramel, Grey, Vanilla, and also seasonal colours.
Our vegan pigments are non-toxic and 100% absorbed by the rubber.
Water-based varnishing may also be applied.
We offer bespoke colours and textures upon consultation.
Organic cotton and other sustainable fabrics can be used for orders greater than 500m/colour, subject to analysis and consultation. Contact us to find out more.
