DREAM BIG | COLLABORATE | INNOVATE | GIVE BACK
CAN WE HELP YOU … SO YOU CAN HELP US TO DELIVER CHANGE?
We are working to drive transformative change in material research and development rather than make incremental tweaks. We are looking for changes that can be applied throughout the fashion sector and beyond.
We can’t do it alone, we need YOU. We want to inspire the next generation to join with us to take what we have learned and what we can contribute to a new level, to create their own dreams.
Dreams that can impact not only Climate Action but by extension other UN SDG’s: Responsible Production and Consumption; Industry, Innovation and infrastructure; and Partnerships for the Goals.
COLLABORATE TO INNOVATE
Through collaboration across the iFarmaissance® team and partnerships up and down the supply chain we are working to innovate solutions to positively impact the future of our planet.
To create next generation materials, including bio-leather alternatives, we need to break down barriers with respect to acquisition and sharing of information between R & D collaborators.
Despite the millions of dollars spent on the research and development no transformative breakthrough has been achieved. At the same time, poorly managed self-regulation by the industry has meant that there is no consistent benchmarking of new material performance, a lack of control of “greenwashing” statements, and a lack of transparency that inhibits development. As consortium ventures many of these projects don’t allow access to the research or accessibility by small brands or students.
We are currently in the R & D phase for the creation of our own bio-based material which we believe will deliver ground-breaking new performance and environmental advancements. We will update you regularly, stay tuned!
It is our social commitment at iFarmaissance to share our knowledge. Leveraging Jennifer Gardner’s 30+ years’ experience in the fashion accessories and manufacturing industry, we test as many of the bio-based leather materials as we can access.
We currently bring to market products that use the best characteristics of the bio-materials available to us right now. At the same time we are going back to the very beginning … conceptualising, re-imagining and designing the materials themselves to encompass a circular economic model that considers every life cycle aspect of the products we are making – this is the responsibility of all of us to have a wider societal influence.
Join with us so we can do this … TOGETHER.
OUR R & D PROJECT COLLABORATION
BIO Leather Alternatives
Our founder’s assignment from Cambridge University (CISL) is now part of a collaborative project working with professors/ scientists of City University of Hong Kong, joinly funded by HKSAR Government Innovation and Technology Fund to bring this decarbonisation action plan to life in a real life scenario...
Let's fight Climate Change and embrace a Net Zero Future. Together!
