Can my dark denim stay dark wear after wear, wash after wash..?

We love:

  • Elegant jeans with a rich color and a clean, rinse-washed finish
  • A long-lasting color even after many wear and laundries

But did you know?

  • Indigo tends to fade very quickly
  • It stains our hands and other surfaces
  • It releases high content of salts in the production waste water

The Archroma Way: Safe, Efficient, Enhanced. It’s our nature.

1. SAFE – IT’S OUR NATURE TO PROTECT

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
Your innovation is critical. Additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics give additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced.
