How can food waste connect with textile material? Founder Dr. James Hou is a well-known expert from Taiwanese textile industry. He desires to change the textile industry from linear economy to circular economy and be more eco-friendly for our earth. Based on his years' experience in textile industry and professional biology background, he created UMORFIL® Technology since 2012 that valued up the food waste – aquaculture fish scale into textile ingredient and successfully innovated the skin-friendly UMORFIL® Bionic Fiber series. UMORFIL® name originates from the combination of Latin “Umor” and French “Fil”. Umor means moisture and fil means yarn, the UMORFIL® Bionic Fiber series just like wool and silk have amino acid naturally but easier for industry as well as consumer to take care, adopt UMORFIL® Bionic Fiber Series can protect marine ecology and avoid soil acidification as well as provide premium value for fabric and garment. Sparkles at skin friendly features, UMORFIL® Bionic Fiber has passed medical level of skin sensitization/ irritation testing (ISO 10993). Well performance relates with denim, active wear, innerwear, home textile, wadding and shoes products. When we with textile product that made by UMORFIL® Bionic Fiber, we provide our skin a better environment to keep our skin stay in a healthier and better condition, also can prevent environmental pollution without using too much chemicals and detergent. To make sure material’s quality and support Taiwanese supply chain, UMORFIL® Bionic Fiber series are all designed and made in Taiwan. We can help to reduce the waste on the world！！ The FAO data shows the fishing volume is increasing annually and had reach 170 million tons until 2018, include 82 million tons from the aquaculture fisheries. We can imagine there’s a huge amount of food waste from fish product, if factories bury them in the land, it will cause the soil acidification seriously, or if they burn them it will also cause the air pollution. When we upcycle the fish scales and extracted amino acid to create the UMORFIL® Bionic Fiber series with multiple natural features, we can help to reduce the food waste and pollution issue on earth. “Do less, achieve more.” UMORFIL® Bionic Fiber creates a new level of comfort and a treasure eco textile choice for you.
