Administration Manager

Esko Haavisto

There is a real can-do culture at Woodspin. We are all involved in shaping our values, systems and workplaces.

The opportunity to make a difference brought me here. I am working with innovative technology that has the potential to drive sustainable growth and transform the textile industry, which is responsible for 10% of global CO2 emissions.

The average person only wears an item seven times before discarding it. How much water does it take to grow the cotton in a t-shirt that is then thrown away? It is statistics like that which demonstrate the substantial challenge and represent a significant opportunity.

One of the greatest benefits of being part of the Woodspin team is the transparent, supportive environment. We have a clear sense of purpose that I find inspiring and empowering.


Laboratory Technician

Ritva Paavilainen

Woodspin is where I can combine my love of chemistry and mathematics with the opportunity to make a difference. It is exciting to be part of a start-up with a mission to be the world’s most sustainable textile fibre source.

I have worked in labs across the oil refinery and automotive industries. My hard work and experience have led me here. There is a real sprit of innovation through collaboration at Woodspin – a common culture and shared passions.

I love my job and feel privileged to do what I love. I am proud of the part we will play in the creation of such a unique product, one that can have a positive impact on future generations and the fashion they wear.

I am looking forward to playing a role in the Woodspin story.
