Facing 2022. 2021 come close to an end. This year’s challenges are no less than last year, but facing them is what we must do. This year we paid attention to some international issues, and also considered the trend of the textile industry and apparel: People care about nature more. Not only are they more willing to step into nature, but more importantly, everyone pays more attention to sustainability issues. Consumers no longer require fast and popular items and are more inclined to choose durable and responsible products. Busy port and congestion in transportation has caused international corporation to rethink about the production chain. Hwa Fune found that Eco-friendly fabric is the top hit this year. Therefore, we launched Porlite, which is a functional fabric with a friendly environment. Not only does it reduce the carbon footprint (energy saving) during production, the focus is on its completely solvent-free characteristics, and it does not burden the earth at all. It has been a tough year for all industries. We thank all our partners for cooperation and support. Because of your support, Hwa Fune is able to improve and provide better service. We expect the border to open next year and look forward to seeing you in person again.

With the advancement of science and technology, textile materials are constantly updated. Even the recycled materials that everyone expects have made a breakthrough. If the processed fabric is made of single material, it can be recycled completely!! It may be great for fabric and membrane both made of poly. After various tests, we found that the poly material not only can be recycled but also has good performance. This is an environmentally-friendly initiative for processing fabrics, making clothing production and recycling a closed cycle.

The Cleaning of Functional Jacket.
Think of your favorite outdoor jacket, and try to recall when was the last time you had it cleaned? We often forget to care about our jackets when the season change and our wardrobe staples rotate. How can we maintain the lifetime of the jackets? If you want your jacket to look as glamorous as it once was and prolong its life. Here is some important knowledge you need to know first. How do I know when to clean? Down jackets: Once a season, if worn occasionally; twice a season, if worn regularly. Fleece jackets: After six or seven times of wear. Rain jackets: Once a season, if worn infrequently; once a month, if worn regularly. How to clean the waterproof & windproof jacket Wipe the dirt with a soft brush. Close all the zippers, buckle the buttons, stick the Velcro, and loosen all the drawstrings. Put the jacket in the laundry bag to avoid excessive twisting during the wash. Use the washing machine and choose the neutral detergent or the functional clothes dedicated. It's recommended to set the soft washing mode and medium temperature. Do not use clothing softeners, bleach, or products containing stain removers for cleaning. Don’t forget to tend to your jacket during the offseason. Hope your functional outfit lasts longer and discover more adventures with you.

Hydro Chromic Printing
You can only see the print after making the fabric wet. Add some surprises to your outfit!! Hydrochromic inks change colour (become transparent) when wet or if moisture is present. Apply these inks over the surface or material you want to hide- so when wet, all will be revealed! Wet and Reveal Screen ink can be printed on various substrates such as paper, cards, print receptive plastics and even textiles. Tests should be carried out to determine suitability for the substrate and application chosen. When a highly permanent print on textiles is required the dried wet and reveal print can be crosslinked by baking for 3 – 5 minutes at 130ºC.

China's power supply tightens effect. Because of many factors including coal prices increase and surging demand, East China has led to side effects at factories of all kinds. Some of the factories cut the output or even halted production entirely. East China is the textile industry base. It accounts for nearly 30 percent of the national capacity. Companies have been asked to reduce power usage and cut production by the officials. "The suspension is quite long, and it will affect business as order deliveries will be delayed," a dyeing company executive in Keqiao told Nikkei Asia. It has affected nearly 160 energy-intensive companies, mainly the textile, dyeing, and chemical fiber industries. information source: Global Times, Nikkei Asia

Bio Membrane｜ Hwa Fune eco series.
Most everyday consumer and industrial products are made using non-renewable resources, such as petrochemicals. The overuse of these finite resources is not sustainable. Biomass products use naturally-derived glucose instead of petroleum feedstocks. Reducing the use of fossil fuels can not only reduce greenhouse gas production, but also allow products to decompose naturally and return to nature. Reduce greenhouse gases by more than 40% Non-renewable energy use about 45% less Process Technology Harvest Renewably sourced feedstocks are harvested, dried and then wet-milled to create a range of carbohydrate rich feedstocks such as glucose. Fermentation Glucose is converted into 1,3 Propanediol using a patented microorganism under exact temperatures and conditions. Refining The 1,3 Propanediol is refined to a final purity of 99.7% by deactivating and removing the microorganism, water, and other byproducts.

The Problems After the Epidemic. With the increase in vaccine delivery rates in advanced countries, some important cities have begun to unblock. Whether it is increased or anticipated increase in demand, it is the long awaited result of various industries. However, the industries cannot quickly respond to market changes. Global transportation issues Trade volume began to reboundin the second half of 2020, whichcaught container manufacturersby surprise. New containerorders could not be digested,and the demand for containerswas clearly in short supply. InDecember 2020, the CAx(Container Availability Index)once fell to a record low of 0.13 Shortage of raw materials The epidemic has forced people to stay at home, sothedemand for services is transformed into demand for goods.But take the United States as an example. Even though thevaccine delivery rate is now increasing and cities areunblocking, the demand for goods is still high.With the slow replenishment of labor, upstreammanufacturers cannot increase production capacity even ifthey receive a large number of orders. The short term of oilalso impacts many livelihood products, such as textiles.
