When the Atlanta Summer Olympics were held in 1996, the 100th anniversary of the modern Olympic Games, the anthem for the Games was the song Return to Innocence by the German band Enigma. The vitality of the voices in the song captured the attention of the world. The voices were those of Difang Duana and the Malan Singers of Taitung, Taiwan.
Difang however was totally unaware at the time that his voice had miraculously become an Olympic anthem. Following the Games, Enigma and Difang fought a three-year legal battle that eventually resulted in a settlement.
It turns out that in 1988 Difang was invited by the Maison des Cultures du Monde cultural center in Paris where he recorded the traditional Amis song “Elders’ Drinking Song” to positive local reviews. This was the voice sample later used in Return to Innocence. So, unexpectedly, this voice would go on to become an Olympic anthem and at the same time let the world know about Taiwan.
The design makes use of traditional Amis patterns and adds some alterations. The Amis people deeply venerate nature and hold that the world contains all manner of nature deities and only through mutual respect may they all inhabit the land together.

The original idea of FLIPPOS hosiery is to create a pair of compression stockings fulfilling functions in every way. You could wear it to the office and exercise after work as well. Simply with ONE SAME pair of stockings.
Considering that most people either sit or stand for a long time for work in which cause the fatigue condition upon feet and calf, we develop our hosiery to apply ‘graduated compression from the sole of the foot to the calf to improve this situation.
Additionally, wearing FLIPPOS during exercise could reduce muscle vibration effectively, produce greater strength, and improve the speed of fatigue recovery after exercising.
Flip the length, flip the attitude.
In order to cater to any occasion and any outfit, FLIPPOS creates the first compression hosiery that can be folded. You could wear it knee-high or fold it to the calf. The item can be transformed into socks within seconds.
