About Us
Ambercycle is a materials science company founded in 2015 to make the global fashion industry circular. Every year, over 120 billion garments are disposed of. We’re developing and scaling a breakthrough technology to manufacture yarns and fabrics from these end-of-life clothes, without a sacrifice in quality, rather than from petroleum or new agriculture resources. Our apparel products avoid the use of new raw materials and go into the highest quality applications, exceeding the expectations of end customers with a fraction of the environmental footprint. Using our technology, we are fundamentally changing the fashion industry and building the infinite textile ecosystem. Ambercycle’s first solution, cycora® is a premium fabric made from end-of-life textiles. For more information, visit www.ambercycle.com and @cycora.la on IG.
