100% NATURAL INPUTS

MIRUM® is made from plants and minerals, and we are working to develop a supply chain that draws on regenerative sources. With carefully chosen natural ingredients, we can tailor MIRUM® to an extraordinary range of design aesthetics and mechanical specifications.

ZERO PLASTIC

No PU, no PVC, no EVA, no petrochemicals. MIRUM® engineers carefully select natural ingredients to yield specified design aesthetics and mechanical properties. MIRUM® has the lowest ecological impact in its category. It’s unique in that it never has and never will use plastic.

LOW CARBON

Proudly manufactured with wind power in Peoria, Illinois, MIRUM®'s global warming potential is 70-86 percent less than synthetic leather and 87-93 percent less than chrome-tanned leather.

BEAUTIFULLY FUNCTIONAL

MIRUM® is a sustainable solution for designers and brands looking to shrink their footprint and expand their creative palettes. MIRUM® can be the smallest pattern overlay or the entire footwear upper. It can look like leather or carbon fiber — you decide.

SHOCKINGLY SUSTAINABLE

MIRUM® has the lowest ecological impact in its category. In addition to having an extremely low carbon footprint, MIRUM® requires no water during closed-loop manufacturing and dyeing. MIRUM® raises the bar for sustainable fashion, footwear, and automotive.

MATERIAL RICH

For creators. For trailblazers. For the boldest brands. We create nutrient-based, exquisitely customizable materials that deliver the beauty, functionality, and performance you demand. Design with intention.

TRULY CIRCULAR & INFINITELY RECYCLABLE

MIRUM® is circular at every level. Cuttings, scraps, and worn-out MIRUM® can be recycled into new MIRUM®, closing the production loop. And because we use only biobased ingredients and non-toxic chemistry, MIRUM® can ultimately rejoin the Earth’s nutrient cycle, closing the natural loop.

BIO-NEUTRAL

MIRUM® was carefully engineered to avoid polluting the surrounding environment during its degradation process. Because MIRUM® is inherently durable, it will take more than a few months to biodegrade as required by some standards, however when put back into the earth there are no microplastics, toxic leaching, and other adverse effects
