Byblos is a material innovation brand that transforms papyrus plants located along the Nile shores in Egypt into a hard and soft sustainable biomaterial. It is an incredibly strong plant with longevity. It has proven to be one of the most efficient and economical pollution filters, as well as the cheapest method for water waste. This plant-based sustainable material can be used in several industrial and consumer applications, such as furniture, floor and wall tiles, wall panels, bathroom fixtures and other surfaces or products.
Byblos is a natural local material alternative resource such as wood, stones, and marble. The process of extracting and transforming the plant into a sustainable biomaterial is relatively inexpensive compared with other materials of this nature.
