New Building Material from Textile Clippings

Fase #3 uses a new substance called Demodé. It uses a starch-based binder to turn textile waste from factories in Santiago, Chile into a useable building material.

Developed by Pecas, Demodé is primarily used for wall tiling and small home furnishings, but this may expand as the material is still in development. It’s already proven its versatility in being easily drilled, sawed, or bound to other materials.
