With this cohort, Fashion for Good has expanded its regional programme deeper into the South East Asian market, further solidifying the platform’s presence and shining a spotlight on innovations from the region.
The new batch includes exciting innovations in material solutions such as leather alternatives from mycelium and technologies producing biopolymers from locally sourced feedstocks like jute and cassava, which are available in abundance and have the potential to be feasible alternatives to plastic. Other game changing technologies include inks produced from greenhouse gas emissions, innovations in dyeing and finishing, dyes from waste from the tea industry, inspection technologies and innovations in wastewater treatment.
“After five months of rigorous scouting and screening, we’ve selected innovators across multiple cutting-edge technologies and from three new countries, further expanding our footprint in the South East Asia region. Collaborating with our global network of partners, we’re excited to help this group of innovators to scale their solutions and further drive the transformation across the fashion supply chain,” said Katrin Ley, managing director of the Netherlands-based organisation.
The innovators will receive bespoke support from Fashion for Good throughout the nine-month programme. Apart from assessing the impact of their solutions on the fashion industry, they will also work closely with Fashion for Good’s network of global partners on pilot projects and implementation activities, developing their path to scale their technologies within the value chain.
Having launched just over a year ago in January of 2020, the South Asia Innovation Programme has already made significant steps in the region, engaging nine regional and global corporate partners and driving pilot and implementation projects in the region with the first two batches of innovators and prominent brands and manufacturers. Expectations for the third batch are equally optimistic, Fashion for Good said in a statement.
The third batch of innovators joining the South Asia Innovation Programme are: Aquaporin (Denmark), Chlorohemp Agrotech (India), Demeta (France), Deven Supercriticals (India), Graviky Labs (India), GreenHope (Singapore), MYCL (Indonesia), Quantum Polychemics (Bangladesh), t-hues (Sri Lanka) and Wise Eye (Hongkong).
