What we stand for
At KIUD our mission is to repurpose textile waste into novel, eco-friendly packaging material that provides a viable and earth-conscious alternative to conventional cardboard.
We stand for the fact that the trees should stay in the forest and not to be cut down for single-use cardboard packaging. We are committed to shaping a greener future.
We strongly believe that textile waste should not be landfilled in the modern world!
