After the success of the SEA ME project, Nienke decided to continue the research on how to use seaweed to create a more sustainable textile industry. As an ongoing research project, she transforms seaweed into natural dyes and yarns. The color palette is surprisingly broad – with colors from green and brown – to pink and purple. They have been working on upscaling these processes to make them available for the entire textile industry since 2014.
More information follows summer 2021.
