At Veratate, we believe that the health of people and the planet is essential to the creative pursuit.

The partners of Veratate are artists who first hand observed the incredible waste and pollution problem in fabrication while servicing the NYC art and design community. Veratate is a collaborative environment where we both educate and offer clients healthy alternatives to traditional fabrication materials and methods.

Veratate is focused on developing a breadth of natural materials from hemp. Hemp, a vehicle for environmental remediation, is at the core of all our materials. Hemp is a powerful carbon sink, soil regenerator, and has an incredibly fast growth rate. We are working with several hemp farms across the US while collecting and processing hemp waste from local farms.

Parallel to the ongoing development of alternative particle board, foam insulation, we welcome custom fabrication and design projects. In addition to advancing our materials, we are constantly growing our library of healthy materials and are excited by the prospect of developing tailored biomaterial solutions. Our main goal is to provide an outlet for designers, artists, and makers to bring life to their ideas in an environmentally respectful way.

Our Services

Fabrication & Design

VERATATE is a design studio proposing a new model of making; rooted in reciprocity and regenerative material economies.

Redefining ‘take-make-waste”

We are actively innovating fabrication methods for novel materials, while using and developing natural materials from carbon sequestering resources. Specifically working with hemp industry waste to make alternative, compostable particle board.


Material Selection: We work closely with you to identify the most suitable materials for your project based on your requirements and goals.

Custom Material Design: If you require a unique material solution, our team can work with you to design and develop custom materials tailored to your specific needs.


We can assist in rapid prototyping your regenerative design idea.

Material Production

Have a natural waste stream that you would like to create into a material or product? We can help.
