0-Knit is a brand of bacterial cellulose threads whose aim is producing Zero Waste textiles, threads which do not generate polluting waste in its life cycle stages.

Bacterial cellulose is a natural polymer obtained from the fermentation of bacteria and yeast with tea and sugar. Depending on several boiling and kiln drying processes, the material offers properties similar to skin, paper or plastic. The mission of 0-knit is to replace the most polluting fibers and skins of fashion and its complements using biofabrication as a new paradigm.
