We are NOOSA™

At NOOSA™, we have the ambition to revolutionize the textile industry by making it circular. Our mission is to reduce textile waste on a global scale by redesigning the textile industry’s global value chain. We believe we need a shift in the way we consume and produce textiles, and we are a tangible solution to drive the change.

Who are we?

NOOSA™ is a Belgian company established in 2019. Our headquarters are in Brussels, where most of our activities take place: from Research & Development to commercial activities and from fiber extrusion at pilot scale to its recycling.

NOOSA™ focuses on two primary areas of activity: the production of a bio-based textile fiber and its recycling. After production, we supply our bio-based fiber and yarn to brands and manufacturers, who process it into a wide range of end-products. However, our commitment doesn’t end there.

Through our NOOCYCLE™ recycling program, we provide a solution to the textile industry to revalorize textile waste at post-industrial, pre- and post-consumer level by extruding our NOOSA™ fiber and fully recycling it into a virgin-quality fiber.
