Natural Plant Dyed - Indidye
The dyeing process strongly impacts the textile industry’s environmental footprint. Current procedures consume large amounts of chemicals, water and energy. By transforming the dyeing process, IndiDye® is contributing to a more sustainable and responsible industry. Our LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) reveals a reduction in water consumption of up to 98% compared to conventional dyes. In addition, we are dyeing at shorter times and lower temperatures, offering improved efficiency in energy and emissions.
The Dying Process
IndiDye® utilizes a revolutionary patented dyeing technology that combines natural, beautiful colors and dyes with an innovative ultrasonic fibre dyeing process. Dyeing is implemented at fibre level before the mélange yarns are spun. Dye-tanks are filled with batches of fibre together with liquid natural dyestuff and exposed to ultrasonic pressure waves that infuse the dyes into the pores of the fibre. This is what gives the unique IndiDye® color fastness results never before achieved with natural plant dyes, without adding chemical mordants, metals or salts. It’s all natural.
By eliminating wastewater in the dyeing process, water consumption is significantly reduced. Through lower dyeing temperatures and shorter dyeing times, IndiDye® also offers measurable improved efficiency in energy and emissions.
– With no hazardous chemicals, no wastewater and a low environmental impact, IndiDye® is truly eco-smart dyeing technology.
