Archroma and Sapphire Finishing Mills Limited (SFML), a leading textile company under Sapphire Group, the largest integrated textile producers in Pakistan, have entered a partnership to adopt Archroma’s sustainable solutions at SFML.

Archroma’s broad portfolio contributes to the textile industry with cutting-edge technologies and performance systems that bring together performance efficiency and sustainability. Its innovative solutions aim to conserve resources under the umbrella of “The Archroma Way to a Sustainable World: Safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature”.

The partnership between Archroma and SFML is based on creating high synergy using three major Archroma solution systems which have been implemented in a circular pattern at SFML shop floor, aiming to add positive economic impact.

  • POWER COTTON - relates to producing powered cotton fabrics with up to five times higher abrasion resistance, creating opportunities for SFML to cater to larger foreign brands and venture into new markets.
