Covation Biomaterials is a plant-based polymer used across the textile (apparel) and carpet industries. It provides unique performance attributes such as stretch without spandex, softness and wrinkle resistance in apparel and stain resistance and softer feeling fibers in carpet.
We believe science should learn from nature—that a product is timeless when it’s renewable, and that a single fiber can make a world of difference. We know that we never have to sacrifice performance to be sustainable, or the other way around. To us, finding ways to leave a smaller footprint just comes naturally, so we do it every step of the way.
