The bounty of oil is the result of hundreds of millions of years of accumulation. FILWEL uses this natural earth resource as a raw material to create a variety of fine leather products. For example, the role of fine polishing pads is expanding and they are taking on an important supporting role in manufacturing of electronic devices such as hard disks and semiconductors. And artificial leather is the main component for such basic items as shoes and bags and has become an accepted material that also provides balance in terms of environ-mental impact, awareness and conservation.
Born from chemistry and technology developed in the 20th century, fine leather has spread around the world. FILWEL's corporate mission is to develop technology that makes dreams come true, respond to the needs of industry and an ever-changing society, create new values with fine leather and contribute to affluent future social development in the 21st century, an era when society, technology, life and nature seamlessly weave together to produce unique harmony.
