Valk is a novel protein-based material, with a unique set of physical, visual and sensory properties, suitable for circular design concepts. We offer an alternative to oil-derived and environmentally harmful materials currently excessively used in the fashion industry.
Valk is made from naturally occurring proteins. It could be produced using pre- and post-consumer waste materials and green-chemistry production methods following the principles of circular economy; it is recyclable and 100% biodegradable. The thickness, translucency, color and structure of the material can be modified easily, making it particularly suitable for replacing plastics used in fashion embellishments and a variety of performance demanding materials in fashion tech. Product development in collaboration with Sirje Sasi.
