This is the latest development that the company will show while participating in Denim by Première Vision Barcelona on 18 and 19 November, the company said in a press release.

The PP Spray, used to create located used areas in a pair of jeans was the last polluting and harmful technique to the health of workers and the environment that had no substitute yet. Now, with this new development, a perfect production cycle eliminating all dangerous techniques in jeans finishing industry has been achieved.

With the light of laser, Jeanologia has ended 4 adverse health and environmental processes used in the textile industry.
