Company News, News | July 8, 2024 | By:


Paradise Textiles, the material science hub of Dubai, United Arab Emirates-based Alpine Group, announced it has signed a deal with biotechnology company, Nanollose for the exclusive supply of its Nullarbor™ fibers.

Under the non-binding term sheet for the joint venture agreement, Paradise will work closely with Nanollose, undertaking research and development to manufacture yarns and fabrics from Nullarbor fibers. They will also supply samples to increase customer engagement, working closely with Nanollose to promote the Nullarbor brand and its fibers and fabrics to prospective clients.

Nullarbor fibers are tree-free fibers produced through a microbial fermentation process that converts waste products into microbial cellulose, using minimal land, water and energy. The microbial cellulose is then transformed into Nullarbor fibers using Nanollose technology, offering a viable alternative to conventional plant-derived cellulose fibers.

“We are proud to announce the successful pilot production of next-generation fabrics utilizing Nullarbor pulp. This achievement signifies Paradise Textiles’ ongoing commitment to innovation in fabric development and collaborative partnerships,” says Ashok Mahtani, co-chairman of Alpine Group. “Nullarbor fiber’s unique properties and production process will enable us to offer our customers high-performance, sustainable textile solutions. We are confident that this partnership will drive significant advancements in the textile industry and help towards achieving our goal of making fashion fit for the future.”

I’m delighted to see this collaboration begin to formalise in a way that establishes a framework for both companies to achieve a commercial outcome. The relationship has been growing organically for some time and we’ve been delighted with the enthusiasm Paradise Textiles has displayed for our technology and fibers,” says Wayne Best, Ph.D., executive chairman at Nanollose. “Their expertise, commitment to sustainability and innovation, and customer base is a natural fit for our Nullarbor fiber technology. It’s proven to be a strong working relationship to-date and I look forward to the joint pursuit of our commercial goals through this strategic joint venture agreement.”
