Poplar fibres

poplar fibres

Soft, fluffy and abundant

Poplar /ˈpɒp.lər/ fibre is a natural material, which is obtained from populus genus trees. During the middle of May, poplar fibres, which are creamy-white, lustrous and lightweight fall from trees and cover ground just like snow.

Poplar fibres offer very unique properties but currently they do not have any usage area in industry due to their length. The length of these fibres is around 1 cm which means they cannot be spun into yarns and be employed in the conventional textiles. As a result of that every year tons of poplar fibres are just wasted.

Here our team utilizes these fibres to make flexible pressure sensors to be used in a fashionable smart shoe


The main pillar of the project is sustainability. From business model to working ethics, everything is connected to sustainability.
