Fashion for Good has announced that seven new innovators have been selected to participate in its 2022 Asia Innovation Program. The nine-month program will provide useful assistance to help participants scale – matching innovators with relevant industry partners to manage piloting, implementation and investment activities.
Focusing on processing, one of the most influential steps in the value chain, this year’s selection of innovators is developing technologies in Asia with the potential for positive disruption in the region. Innovators are creating unique solutions for dyeing, pretreatment and finishing from plant, forest and agricultural waste, using technologies such as AN Herbals, Fermentech Labs, Gyasel and Sandhani Biotech, Bioprocessing, Nanocellulose and Microorganisms. The remaining innovators present pioneering innovations in raw materials, effects and end-of-use, the UKHI Hemp Foundation seeks alternative materials from flax, tracks the carbon footprint through the value chain and enables Picvisa to recover prices from existing materials, the company said in a press release.
As with previous selections, these innovators gain the support they need to scale based on each inventor’s immediate needs, as well as exposure to corporate partners and industry ecosystem players that are critical to their continued growth and development. Since its inception in Asia in 2020, seven new innovators have marked the third selection of innovators to participate in the Asia Innovation Program, which has supported a total of 28 innovators through this program.
