innovators have introduced leather alternative solutions.
Three Indian fashion innovators have made it to the Fashion for Good‘s third cohort.
Fashion for Good is a global platform providing opportunities for sustainable fashion innovations.
The platform has released the list of innovators who are selected for their South Asia Innovation Programme.
The names of the successful Indian innovators are Chlorohemp Agrotech, Deven Supercriticals and Graviky Labs.
There are a total of 10 innovators selected for the programme, three of which belong to India.
In a press release, Fashion for Good‘s Managing Director, Katrin Ley said:
“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.”
This will be the third batch of innovators to join the South Asia Innovation Programme. They 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).
These innovators have introduced leather alternative solutions.
The innovations also include technologies to create biopolymers from locally sourced jute and cassava.
These raw materials are surplus in the region and can be developed as alternatives to plastic.
Other innovations include inks produced from greenhouse gas emissions, dyes using waste from the tea industry, inspection technologies and innovations in wastewater treatment.
These innovators will receive supervised support from Fashion for Good.
The programme will go on for nine months.
Participants of the programme will get a chance to work closely with Fashion for Good’s network of global partners.
They will work on pilot projects and carry out the implementation activities.
This will help them to develop their path to scale their technologies within the value chain.
Fashion for Good introduced the South Asia Innovation Programme in January 2020.
Since then, it has trained two batches of innovators consisting of prominent brands and manufacturers.
This global innovation programme is focused on assessing the upcoming technologies.
The programme focuses on the technologies that can bring a radical change in the fashion industry.
Fashion for Good provides a platform to connect brands, producers, retailers, suppliers, non-profit organisations and innovators.
These connections then create opportunities for the participants to work together and provide healthy and sustainable technology for the fashion industry.
