Textile is a lab dedicated to building and exploring new technology to help decentralize consumer applications. We believe that the world’s most valuable future technology will be built on a new model where individuals have complete agency over the data they create. Our mission is to make that future happen faster.
Textile is known for building simple yet powerful developer tools that extend three families of protocols: Libp2p, IPFS, and Filecoin.
