Grid State advances the conversation around sustainability. As Luum’s first textile made of post-consumer recycled biodegradable polyester*, Grid State is all about evolution. Not only does its recycled, biodegradable fiber content lessen impact on the environment but it also provides more design solutions with its bleach-cleanable and multipurpose-use properties. Grid State's motif is borrowed directly from the textile development process, transforming graphic dobby weave drafts into colorful jacquard artwork, then woven into the textile's final form. Through exploring the concept of the grid, a starting point for designers and makers, we contemplate new beginnings.
**Rate and extent of biodegradation into elements found in nature is 91% after 1,278 days under ASTM D5511 (Anaerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials Under High Solids Anaerobic Digestion Conditions.) The test was done with the same component (PET) polyester and biocatalyst additive. No evidence of further degradation.
