Italian textile chemical company Officina+39 is scaling up its revolutionary clean dye technology Recycrom for mass volumes. Officina+39 has collaborated with Italian high-street retailer OVS, which has so far resulted in two capsule collections. The company is talking to many other interested brands and retailers for a whole range of collaborations.
In 2017, the clean dye (e.g Recycrom) won the Keyhouse Hightex award at Munich Fabric Start 2017. As interest in this start-up technology increases exponentially, it is now set for scaling. Brands can also collaborate with the inventors Officina+39 to make custom dyes from their own scraps and textile waste, a media release said.
Recycrom is a full range of coloured powders made by recycling textile fibres from used clothing and manufacturing waste. Through an innovative and patented process, these fibres are upcycled into a remarkably uniform and solid powder that can be used as a pigment dye for fabrics and garments made of cotton, wool, nylon or any natural and most artificial fibres and blends.
Recycrom can also be applied using various methods: exhaustion dyeing, printing and spray - with coating now under development. (PC)
