A CRUELTY-FREE, PLANT-BASED ALTERNATIVE FOR
WOOL AND MAN-MADE FABRICS
WHAT IS WEGANOOL™?
A cruelty-free and plant-based wool alternative, meticulously crafted without a single drop of chemicals! WEGANOOL™ yarn is spun with the utmost care, derived from the carefully extracted calotropis stem and pod fibers, delicately blended with 70% organic cotton. The inherent hollowness of the soft calotropis fiber ingeniously forms air pockets within the fabric, granting it a delightful lightweight feel and a touch of luxury, while bestowing it with remarkable thermal-regulating properties. Experience the beauty of nature, embodied in this eco-friendly fabric, designed for both your comfort and the planet's well-being.
In alignment with its unwavering dedication to sustainability, WEGANOOL™ fabric undergoes a dyeing and finishing process exclusively using natural materials, embracing nature's gifts, every step of the fabric-making process.
What distinguishes WEGANOOL™ from traditional textiles lies in its groundbreaking zero-waste concept. In sharp contrast to conventional fabric production methods that yield harmful effluents and sludge as byproducts, WEGANOOL™'s manufacturing process is meticulously designed to be waste-free. Every drop of residues generated during fiber extraction and natural dyeing is ingeniously repurposed into valuable agricultural product AARKA. This innovative approach transforms WEGANOOL into more than just a textile; it becomes a powerful symbol of conscientious production, embodying nature's innate ability to harmonize and thrive without waste.
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

In January 2020 WEGANOOL™ was presented in London at the Future Fabric Expo, the world's largest showcase of sustainable materials. The fabric received special spotlight on the Expo Innovation Table as a creative vegan wool alternative.
A few most demanded constructions are available for brands and designers to purchase. The woven fabrics can be used to make shirts, scarves, dresses, inner linings, and many more. The knits - single jersey and fleece - for comfortable, elegant, and warm transeasonal dressing.
Calotropis, a drought-prone plant, thrives without the need for irrigation. The production of one kg of WEGANOOL™ preserves 6000 L of clean drinking water in contrast to regular 100% cotton yarn
Calotropis cultivation is pesticide-free, and in return its fiber extraction residue is transformed into the potent pest repellent AARKA, which is environmentally friendly and helps restore a healthy ecosystem.
FABORG has a non-negotiable policy to keep the fabric 100% pure until it reaches the end consumer. It means only 100% biodegradable and natural chemicals in form of minerals can be used at any stage of the WEGANOOL™ life cycle.
WEGANOOL™ is dyed only with high-quality natural plants, flowers, roots, seeds, and minerals.
Every drop of water used in the manufacturing of WEGANOOL™ and Natural Dyes is redirected for AARKA production.
WEGANOOL™ is 100% plant-based and cruelty-free.
Production of 1 meter of WEGANOOL™, farmers can replace 20 L of toxic pesticides in average and save around 200 EUR for their families while moving towards regenerative agricultural practices
A fabric that warms your body and benefits the planet and people
