Are the products/materials already available for sale?
In 2020 Nienke became the co-founder of Zeefier, a company developing natural seaweed dyes for the textile industry. For more information or requests on seaweed dyes, you can visit their website.
To buy naturally tanned fish leather, you can contact Searious Fish, a Dutch company who are also our supplier for the RE-SEA ME stool salmon leather. If you want to make your own fish leather, please see our book Fish Leather.
The materials like cellulose from used toilet paper and PHA (bioplastic) that we used in our collaborations with the Dutch Water Authorities can be inquired through the Energy and Raw Materials Factory.
The products in our webshop are available for sale, of course.
