The story behind KIUD

KIUD Technologies was founded by two female entrepreneurs, Kaie & Liis, who share a mutual pain for the fashion industry’s impact on the environment. Namely the piling landfills of the textile waste.

 

KIUD’s mission is to disrupt the wood-based packaging industry by transforming discarded textile waste into novel packaging material.
