Company location: United States


We designed a proprietary polymer for the bio-cycle.


We use inputs derived from sugar, instead of fossil fuels.

Clean oceans

We design our materials to naturally degrade, keeping our oceans microfiber-free.

Textile circularity

Our textiles fit physical and chemical recycling schemes, as well as industrial composting.

Reduced emissions

With a lower processing temperature, our materials require less energy in production.


Drop-in fit for existing equipment.

We started with the traditional inputs used to make poly(butylene succinate) and tailored the chemistry to enhance manufacturability and overall performance for textile applications. 

Let’s make synthetics renewable.

Kintra brings a farm-to-fiber story.

Traditional fossil fuel-based synthetics represent two-thirds of the global fiber market. The production of petrochemical-based polyester (PET) alone accounts for more annual oil consumption than the entire country of Spain.* 

At Kintra, we envision a future for the fashion industry that is free from fossil fuels. Our inputs are derived from sugar instead of petroleum, and we design our materials to fit industrial composting. From our perspective, Kintra materials are “leased” from nature to humans and formulated to return to the soil from which they originate. 

Let’s end microfiber pollution. 

Kintra works alongside nature to keep our oceans clean.

Each time you do laundry, millions of microfibers shed from your clothes. Microfibers from PET, nylon, and their recycled or bio-based versions get through wastewater facilities and pollute the oceans with tiny plastic particles, equivalent to 50 billion plastic bottles per year.* 

At Kintra, we believe the planet deserves clean water. We’ve designed our materials to naturally degrade in the aerobic environment of a waste water treatment facility, keeping our oceans and soil clean.
