Our Amazing Clients

Novel packing material

KIUD is made of repurposed industrial textile waste fibers, hence being reusable, durable, tear-resistant and crack-proof.

 

The premium quality packaging from end-of-life textiles has over an 80% smaller carbon footprint compared to the conventional cardboard process.

 

We do not use any water or chemicals!

KIUD material has a distinctive texture that conveys a high quality luxury feeling.

Making difference

12.6 M tons generated

EU generates 12.6 million tons of textile waste each year, 78% of it is landfilled or incinerated.

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.
