"I will always support innovation like Amphitex™ to disrupt the outdoor performance textile market so that we do not become complacent as an industry. Amphitex™ is a great example which helps re-establish British design and material innovation."
Charles Ross
Specialist in Performance Sportswear Design & Sustainable Matters FRSA
"FFF and UoL have been working with Amphico, both via FFF Responsive R&D funding and IUK awards since 2020. Having helped to take the startup’s original waterproof breathable textile fibre and turn it into a viable product, we are thrilled that this innovative technology is gaining impetus through the application of Amphitex™, which has exciting ramifications not only for Amphico's own collections, but as a sustainable alternative to be used in a range of outerwear pieces."
Susan Rainton
Future Fashion Factory (FFF) Programme Manager
"As part of a Future Fashion Factory R&D project, Dr Mark Taylor, Dr Ioana Taylor and I were able to assist the Amphico team to support the early-stage commercial development and physical testing of the new Amphitex product. Amphico is now collaborating with large retail brands, as well as trialling methods of recycling Amphitex for the production of new products. It's really good to see the progress that Amphico has made in building its new business and creating an exciting new product to replace traditional WWB membranes."
