We are SpinDye, a Swedish firm specialising in dyes for synthetic, woven, knitted, or crocheted fibres working in collaboration with NCS, the world’s leading colour system, has unveiled a resource-efficient, sustainable, colourfast method to dye synthetic fibres in pants, jackets, and backpacks, without the use of water and heavy use of chemicals.

The Swedish company dyes synthetic fibre with sustainability and environmental protection as the main focus. Above all, the immense use of water is significantly reduced by the innovative procedure. First recycled plastic is melted down and the desired dye pigment is added to the undyed material. After that, yarn is produced from it in the desired strength. The clients and manufacturers can further process this yarn as usual.

In the conventional dyeing process, 100 to 150 litres of water are required to dye a kilogram of textiles. Due to insufficient restrictions in countries like China or Bangladesh, the toxic water from the dyeing reaches rivers, lakes, and into the groundwater. According to Greenpeace, two thirds of all rivers and lakes in China are classified as polluted.

We are SpinDye is offering its technology for all synthetic materials, such as polyester or nylon, but also for rayon. A combination of synthetic fibres and unbleached wool can be used. There are no limits for manufacturers in further processing: The fabrics can, for example, be coated or equipped with a membrane.

In future, manufacturers can choose the final product dye from a digital dye scale. Since the synthetic fibres are already dyed during their production, their colourfastness is guaranteed. The protracted process of colour comparison no longer applies. The colourfastness is also preserved, even under extreme UV radiation. The company currently offers around 2,000 colours. (GK)
