Archroma, leader in colour and specialty chemicals, has launched EarthColors, dyes made from recycled plant waste. Archroma’s EarthColors range has grabbed public attention for being the Gold Winner of the OutDoor Industry Award 2017, Sustainable Innovations category. These are patented plant-based dyes, sourced from up to 100 per cent renewable resources.

Archroma developed EarthColors using non-edible waste products, from agriculture and herbal industries, to replace petroleum derived raw materials; which are the conventional raw materials used to synthesize dyes currently. This gives brands an alternative when looking for more natural ways of dyeing garments.

Archroma is collaborating with G-Star RAW under which G-Star RAW has introduced a new capsule collection of denim coloured using Archroma’s EarthColors. The three gorgeous colours available in the capsule collection: ‘Dark Plum’, ‘Asfalt’ and ‘Mazarine Blue’, are made from the non-edible parts of beetroot and saw palmetto, left over from agriculture industry or herbal extraction.

“As denim innovators we’re always striving to challenge conventions – both in terms of style and future-proof processes. The introduction of EarthColors into G-Star’s jeans’ collection represents a successful collaboration with Archroma and the embodiment of our sustainable mindset which guides our product design from start to finish,” said Frouke Bruinsma, corporate responsibility director, G-Star RAW.

“G-Star is the very first denim brand to collaborate with Archroma to create a collection of coloured jeans,” commented Paul Cowell, global head of Brand Marketing, Brand and Performance Textile Specialties, Archroma. “By doing so, we hope they will inspire more denim brands and retailers to switch to sustainable dyeing ingredients that, like EarthColors, allow creating gorgeous colours – and at the same time are so much gentler on our planet. Because it’s our nature!” (SV)
