FairCraft pitch at Europe 15 Demo Day

Leather is a beautiful and timeless material, but it was also ranked the #1 most polluting one used in the fashion industry, far ahead of cotton or polyester.

As brands are under tremendous pressure to become more ethical and sustainable, FairCraft have taken the best of cellular culture, material science and tissue engineering techniques, and come up with a cell-based alternative. This alternative meets the requirements the industry has been expecting for years: CO2 emissions cut by 90%, great mechanical performance, and outstanding customisation capabilities.
