AirString has the rare opportunity to truly shape an industry. Our technology has many features that a cushioning market, starving for something new is primed for. But how did we arrive at this point?
After examining the cushioning market, our founder realized quickly the climate in the cushioning industry was ripe for change. So much was wrong with the foam surfaces we interact with on a regular basis: heavy off-gassing of toxic chemicals, the emergence of bed bugs, and allergens, and warm microclimates are just a few examples of the perils facing ordinary cushioning today.
But what was the solution. They scoured the globe looking for a new material that would solve these issues. Eventually they found it in Gamagoori-City Japan. A company there had developed a Plastic nest-like cushion that was made of 90 percent air. They had already found multiple uses for it.
We immediately realized how this technology would become the future of cushioning. They hopped on a plane to Japan and 6 months later AirString was born. We now have our own factory in Tennessee where we produce AirString the future of cushioning.
