Did you know that most polyester cotton blends need to be dyed twice?

We love:

  • Fabrics with the durability of polyester and the comfort of cotton…
  • … that don’t overuse natural resources

We don't love:

  • That the polyester and the cotton need to be dyed separately…
  • …requiring twice the amount of water, time and energy…
  • … generating more CO2

  • Differentiation with improved resource utilization for brands that demand and drive sustainable production
  • A short and robust system approach:
    • Improved fabric quality. Less pilling due to reduced mechanical abrasion
    • Improved resource optimization in terms of water & energy
