About us

We can learn a lot from nature; scale, strength and harmony.

That's why KiwiFibre is Reinforced by Nature.

KiwiFibre was established in 2020 as a result of a university group project that will never finish. Founders William and Ben met at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, with a mutual interest in designing and making things. Frustrated with fibreglass and inspired by the strength of nature from their childhoods building treehouses, they set out to blend nature and engineering to solve significant problems the world is facing. As they gained a deeper understanding of the human, technical and environmental problems of the composites industry, the idea of using natural fibres in composite applications was a no brainer.

KiwiFibre was born, out of a love for creating things, and a desire to solve problems for Aotearoa New Zealand and the world.

Mission

Vision

We use regenerative fibres to design solutions that help global industries make a change in our environment and economy.

Our vision is to build a world where natural, renewable resources solve environmental problems and drive humanity forward.
