From waste coffee grounds to eco-friendly fabric


Singtex Industrial Co., a world-renowned Taiwanese company known for producing functional fabrics, is out with its groundbreaking idea. The company developed a new eco-friendly product that uses fibers made from waste coffee grounds. The fabric, called “S.Cafe” is a result of three years dedication and efforts of the company to transform waste coffee grounds into eco-friendly fabric.

The fabric from coffee grounds has unique qualities like they dry quickly, controls odors and offers UV protection. All these aspects contribute to making the fabric eco-friendly, which the company loves to flaunt. A patented process turns the coffee grounds into yarn, which is then used to produce many styles of knitted and woven fabrics, as well as soft shell fabrics.

Unlike other yarns, the fabric is totally chemical-free and does not use any kind of unsafe materials. The process of converting the coffee grounds into fabric does not require high temperature carbonization, hence is energy efficient. One medium sized cup of the coffee grounds is capable of producing two T-shirts. As far as the washing of the eco-friendly fabric is concerned, it can be washed using plain water without any detergent.
