Filling up less landfills with these nature inspired Bio-Knit sneakers via psfk
The Bio-Knit is produced of consistent fibers using traditional knitting machine technologies and is rooted in the principles of biomimicry.
By using a singular-fiber fabric versus a composite fabric—a material made of multiple different fibers to create a newly functional fabric—the fabric is easily and more cost-effectively recycled. After a fabric swatch (similar to that of a traditional cable-knit sweater) has been developed, heat is applied in one of two ways: heat pressing or 3D-engraving.
