Sportswear giant Nike has touched another milestone in its constant endeavour to minimise carbon footprints by creating a unique revolutionary garment using the waterless dyeing technology, ColorDry.

The production of the new tennis shirt, which is crafted with 96 per cent high-performance polyester fabrics derived from recycled plastic bottles, not only saves energy but also eliminates the need for added chemicals in fabric dyeing process.

Available in an array of brilliant colours, the sustainably-produced Nike Tennis ColorDry Polo features Nike Dri-FIT fabric with quick moisture evaporation properties, ideal for warm weather matches.

Exclusively sold at select Nike retail stores and online, the dry, comfortable and stylish polo shirt, which can be worn both on- and off-court, delivers unrestricted range of motion.

Australian professional tennis player Nick Kyrgios sported the shirt in March, 2015’s Indian Wells tennis tournament in California.

According to a statement on Nike website, “It takes 30 litres of water - the equivalent amount in 60 plastic water bottles - to dye a T-shirt using traditional dyeing methods. Nike ColorDry technology dyes fabric using zero water, while also saving energy and eliminating the need for added chemicals in the fabric dyeing process.”

The ColorDry technology, which replaces water with recyclable CO2 for dyeing, was developed by a Dutch start-up named DyeCoo Textile Systems BV. (PB)
