Lingrove Based in the San Francisco Mission, our mission to make wood without forests. Our initial offering is Ekoa, a beautiful, structural and formable natural grain material made of plant fibers and resins instead of trees. It has the performance, look, and feel of wood but is carbon negative and poised to supplant entire forests of rare wood. Lingrove is seed funded, generating actual revenues, and winning awards for Ekoa® in applications as varied as sports equipment and music instruments with coverage in Wired, How-its-Made, and CNN. We have a growing team of driven pros and world-class advisors to help us grow.
Ekoa composite is an elegant and Earth-friendly solution for that allows a formable natural wood finish without trees. The benefits are more than skin deep with lighter-than-carbon fibers that are strong enough for aerospace applications.
