Spiber commences construction of Brewed Protein™ mass production plant in Thailand

Spiber is commencing construction of a mass production facility for its Brewed Protein™ materials. The plant will be constructed at the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Estate in Rayong, Thailand. With a maximum capacity of several hundred tonnes per year, the plant is expected to be the world’s largest structural protein fermentation facility (as of July 10, 2019; independent research). Commercial production is expected to commence in 2021.


Brewed Protein™ materials are proprietary structural proteins created through a brewing (i.e. fermentation) process that is not reliant on petroleum or animal resources. This sustainable and ethical material is anticipated for use in various industrial sectors such as apparel, transportation, construction, artificial hair, and medical devices.

sacai x Spiber collaboration items presented during 2019 Paris Fashion Week Men's

Spiber presented two T-shirts designed by art director Fabien Baron at the “sacai men’s 2019 Spring & Summer and women’s 2019 Pre Spring” show in Paris. Both shirts utilize a blend of Brewed Protein™ (Spiber’s newly-developed high quality and sustainable material) and cotton.


Based on the concept of designing for everyday life and not just for special occasions, sacai creates clothes that are unique yet universal, innovate and experimental, and which succeed in manifesting a novel sense of harmony through the combination of unexpected elements and differing technologies. This approach to fashion resonates with Spiber and led us to work together for this collaboration.
