Our Finnish, honest engineer minds have created a carbon positive closed loop. We have the guts to make this fiber technology the new normal.

Our perspective

Finnish spirit in one sentence is engineer mindset combined with radical, introvert honesty. We love solving problems that might seem boring, but have a huge impact on the planet. Infinited Fiber was born in VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, one of the leading research and technology organisations in Europe.

People today seek meaning. They want to live responsible-made-easy. We open the door to a reality, that is still a utopia for most fashion giants: affordable, new cotton. Our safe process gives the possibility to loop one’s own waste, too. And it isn’t material picky. All this is scalable and high quality. The potential is as huge as the human love for fashion. Are you a like-minded change agent, willing to save the planet with us?

We are the only ones who can turn waste into new cotton cost-efficiently.

Now we need you.

One company alone cannot save the planet. We are looking for like-minded change agents to join forces with us. We want to start an active, uplifting & fruitful dialogue with you.

Whether you have financial, brand or other influence impact, please be in touch. The planet needs you.

We have the technology. By using it, you change the world.

For change, determination is key. Let’s push the courage in each other, openly!

Let’s save the planet and make good fashion business together.

Let’s talk

Mastermind behind Infinited Fiber

Research professor Ali Harlin has wide knowledge of the impact of materials to our existence. The meaningfulness of longterm research is deep: it’s not creating an app overnight. Rather it is a love relationship that keeps on giving.

Our impact maximizer

All great minds need an interpreter that reaches out to the rest of the world. Petri Alava is not only our CEO, but our Head of Ecosystem: his responsibility is to maximize our impact by connecting with other change agents of good fashion business. Petri is a soul determined to listen, solve & build. Thanks to him, Infinited Fiber won’t stay hiding in technology labs, but meets the world.
