This isn't just about colors
IT'S A FABRICATION REVOLUTION
Nature offers some of the most beautiful colors. We want to bring this living palette to you, within your everyday life products, in the place of the usual, non-renewable, oil-derived, synthetic colorants.
To achieve this, we work with colourful micro-organisms that biofabricate incredible pigments.
Our premier mission at Pili is to bring to the world the first renewable inks fabricated through bioproduction to replace their toxic, non-biological and non-recyclable versions.
Pili was born from the reunion of a biologist, a designer and an entrepreneur at the biohackerspace La Paillasse in Paris. Its team is now dedicated to provide the largest range of colors from micro-organisms to offer a sustainable alternative to fossil resources and finally bring biology home.
