The OceanSafe journey started in 2019, when today’s CEO Manuel Schweizer laid the foundation of the startup company. Manuel had previously spent over 10 years on R&D on circular interior textiles and collected three decades of experience in the textile industry.
He founded the parent company in Bern, Switzerland, and the German subsidiary in Krefeld followed suit shortly thereafter.
To convert his textile expertise, inventions and know-how into a market-ready technology for a wide range of textile applications.
Implementing circularity in the textile industry
OceanSafe technology addresses various environmental problems of the textile industry. We help our customers - textile brands and retailers - develop circular textile items. We follow the Cradle to Cradle product design philosophy and aim to implement and manifest these ideas throughout the textile industry.
Today, OceanSafe operates a licensing business model. We license our technology to brands and manufacturers along the entire textile value chain.
Our synthetic circular textile materials have the potential to be game-changers and to replace conventional materials like polyester or cotton.
Further, our holistic product development concept OceanSafe Certified helps designers and product developers at brands to launch market-ready circular and certified products in record time.
