"Smartfiber AG, in Rudolstadt (Thuringia), develops and markets nature based lyocell fibers with different functionalities for the international market. Founded in 2005, smartfiber AG combines the scientific know-how of the twenty year old research and development work of the Thuringian Institute for Textile and Plastics Research (TITK) in Rudolstadt with the entrepreneurial background of the marketing and sales expert Michael Kohne.
With the help of a patented procedure, smartfiber succeeded in incorporating natural additives with a positive effect on the skin permanently into a cellulose fiber. The fibers are completely bio-degradable and hence meet the expectations of the industry and the modern consumer.
These hightech-fibers, labeled smartcel(tm) and SeaCell(r), are the basis for innovative products in the textile, medical and nonwoven sector. The fiber technology with the quality seal "Made in Germany" received several awards, among others the famous "Deutscher Innovationspreis" (German Innovation Prize) in 2010.
Stuti Exports exclusively represents and acts as the marketing arm of Smartfibers in India, Sri Lanka & Bangladesh.
„time to relax“ – the power of seaweed in one fiber
The idea behind SeaCell® is actually quite simple: natural, pure and effective active ingredients from the sea should give us and our skin a treat. Ecological, environmentally aware and hence up to date, SeaCell® brings the positive achievements of nature back to men. On this basis, the idea of using natural substances to develop the SeaCell® fiber, which is beneficial, skin protective and health-promoting, evolved. It lays the groundwork for products that modern people with demands and quality awareness expect.
"All life comes from the sea", stressed the Greek physician Hippocrates more than 2000 years ago. The Ocean is the cradle of humankind. Therefore the sea is the centre of the SeaCell® idea. It is the origin of all being and contains a tremendous variety of essential nutrients, which are important for the material and emotional wellbeing of people.
This especially extends to seaweed. As vitalising multi-talents, they contain regeneration, relaxation and a sense of wellbeing within themselves. Inside the seaweed is an enormous amount of power, which stems from the period of the creation of all life. They are carriers of the genetic code of our existence and contain the original matrix of life. Particularly the first single- celled form of seaweed has been an essential component in the evolution of life.
This is where the SeaCell® innovation comes into play: The health-promoting properties of the maritime natural substance are being used by producing a unique fiber that combines cellulose with seaweed. The exceptional about SeaCell® is how the seaweed has been permanently incorporated into the fiber, locking the effects of the marine substances into the fiber for good.
