asahi kasei invests in us bio based startup nfw


As part of Asahi Kasei’s medium-term growth strategy and in close cooperation with Sage Automotive Interiors, Inc. (Sage), an Asahi Kasei company and a leading global provider of innovative and functional materials for the automotive interior, this strategic partnership, the value of which has not been disclosed, enables another major step to support global automotive OEMs in reducing the environmental burden of automobiles.


Based in Peoria, Illinois (IL), NFW was founded in 2015 and has developed the only platform capable of producing precision-engineered, natural (non-petroleum-based) leather, foam, and textiles to replace animal and petrochemical-based materials.


Certified by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) as having 100 percent biobased content, “MIRUM”, the company’s patented leather alternative, is made from natural rubber, natural fibers, plant oils, natural pigments, and minerals.


According to Asahi Kasei, the material offers superior durability and quality that can replace traditional animal-based or synthetic leather products without the use of any polyurethane or other coatings.
