Our natural fibre insulations capture a net amount of carbon, are made from local UK hemp crops and result in zero waste. Durable and soft they are healthy to build with. They also provide passive regulation of temperature and humidity for added indoor comfort and health.
Welcome the new era of cleantech and biotech in construction.
The company’s co-founders started IndiNature because there is a need for global industrial scale change in the types of products we put in our buildings.
There is a growing urgency for products which capture, rather than create, carbon; for products which use bio-based materials and no toxins; and for products which don’t end up in landfill.
When studying sustainable architecture, co-founder Scott carried out lab-based research into natural alternative insulations and found they also have performance advantages over conventional ones. He then used his family home as a case study – completely gutting, rebuilding and extending it using the best natural materials on the market.
The three-bed home ended up with a ¼ of the average heating bill and now keeps humidities and temperatures even, comfortable and healthy all year long. Warm in winter, cool in summer – naturally.
But the products were hard to find, expensive and imported.
IndiNature was founded in 2016 to make high quality natural insulations and to make them available locally around the globe – on an industrial scale and price competitive.
IndiNature’s parent company is based in Edinburgh – leading on materials innovation including biotech R&D and novel construction products.
The first subsidiary will be a high capacity insulation factory we call our Hempworks – using traditional industrial hemp crops – in the Scottish Borders.
Industrial hemp is a historic crop in the UK – it was grown for its durability and strength for the Navy’s rigging and anchor ropes and sails.
We are proud to help revive this exceptionally sustainable crop in the UK and globally.
We’re here to make the world a better place.
