Grid State

Grid State advances the conversation around sustainability. As Luum’s first textile made of post-consumer recycled biodegradable* polyester, Grid State is all about evolution. Not only does its recycled, biodegradable* fiber content lessen impact on the environment but it also provides more design solutions with its bleach-cleanable and multipurpose-use properties.


Grid State’s motif is borrowed directly from the textile development process, transforming graphic dobby weave drafts into colorful jacquard artwork, then woven into the textile’s final form. Through exploring the concept of the grid, a starting point for designers and makers, we contemplate new beginnings. Grid State is part of Luum’s Collective Conscious Collection.



*Rate and extent of biodegradation into elements found in nature is 91% after 1,278 days under ASTM D5511 (Anaerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials Under High Solids Anaerobic Digestion Conditions). The test was done with the same component (PET) polyester and biocatalyst additive. No evidence of further degradation.


Change the facts.

55 million pounds of synthetic plastic textiles are sent to landfills every day in the U.S. alone. 1
Only 1% of all synthetic and plastic-based textiles are eventually fully recycled. 2

1) Advancing Sustainable Materials Management 2013, U.S. Environmental Agency. Preferred Fiber Market Report 2016
2) According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 15% of textiles are reused/recycled at the first cycle, 7% at the second cycle and 1% at the third cycle. This results in 99% of our textiles eventually being landfilled.
