Can we have cotton articles in pale tones that last longer?

WE LOVE:

  • Comfortable knitted essentials in elegant pale tones
  • Colors created responsibly that are longer lasting

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Pale tone shades usually come with reproducibility issues
  • The dyeing process therefore usually needs an additional step for shade correction, leading to lower productivity and unnecessary use of precious resources

The Archroma Way to a Sustainable World: Safe, Efficient, Enhanced. It’s our nature.

  1. SAFE – IT’S OUR NATURE TO PROTECT
    A solid core: Our deeply rooted goal to protect people and our planet.
    Safe to use, safe to release and also safe to wear.
  2. EFFICIENT – IT’S OUR NATURE TO RETHINK SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING
    Innovating application processes that minimize resources and maximize productivity, both in our and our customers’ manufacturing as well as by setting ourselves ambitious sustainability goals.
  3. ENHANCED – IT’S OUR NATURE TO ADD ANOTHER LEVEL OF VALUE
    Innovation is critical. With it, we create additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics and sustainable differentiation to bring additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced.
