Aalto University students invented Fluff Stuff, a textile filler that was on show as part of Helsinki Design Week and made from plants grown on Finland’s rewetted peatlands.
Two engineers, both master’s students at Helsinki’s Aalto University, co-founded Fluff Stuff, a line of soft prototype household goods and apparel.
The pieces are packed with typha latifolia, also known as broadleaf cattail. It is a kind of plant that is often found in Finnish peatlands, a type of wetland, and is characterised by its long cigar-shaped seed heads.
According to the Fluff Stuff team, drained peatlands are responsible for between 50 and 60 percent of agricultural emissions in Finland.
The project intends to rehabilitate rewetted peatlands while simultaneously offering a more environmentally friendly method of producing textile filler. Instead of conventional, carbon-intensive down filling, each product is filled with plant fibres.
The Fluff Stuff team claims that cattail absorbs 66% less water than down and dries twice as quickly.
Students have also recently produced textiles from plants growing in seawater and edible sauce made from ramen packaging that dissolves.
The team is presently using textiles that it has found for the project, according to the designer, but in the future, it aims to produce its own textiles in order to employ the filler as Fluff Stuff is expected to become a commercial line.
