Sarah Bellos, the founder and president of US-grown natural colour producer Stony Creek Colors, has been selected for this year’s AATCC Young Entrepreneur Award, an accolade that recognises young entrepreneurs operating in broader textile industry.

The Nashville-based company CEO will be honoured for her expertise in producing regionally-sourced natural dye colorants and pigments for industrial use at the upcoming edition of AATCC International Conference in Georgia.

Using her education on sustainable agriculture from the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) at North Carolina State University (NCSU), Bellos has developed an agricultural supply chain which delivers reliable and safe bio-based dyes to the textile industry and minimises hazardous chemical consumption by fashion brands.

The young entrepreneur co-founded Stony Creek Colors with Mark Cooley in 2012. Her current work involves coordinating natural dye production with specialty crops like indigo and black walnut at three farms located in middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky.

“Bellos works with farmers and agricultural-waste industries on contract dye-growing, in-house and outsourced research on next-generation natural colorants, and industrial-scale colorant manufacturing,” said the company’s co-founder Cooley.

Organised by the not-for-profit organisation serving textile professionals, Association of Textile, Apparel & Materials Professionals (AATCC), the young entrepreneur award ceremony will be held sometime in between the AATCC conference taking place from March 24 to 26, 2015 at Hilton Desoto, Savannah.
