Our dye is able to decrease water consumption and chemical usage by using natural ingredients that latch onto fabrics more efficiently than traditional dyes.

Cellulose is the most abundant, renewable, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly organic material found in nature. 

The desired shade is created by blending the natural or synthetic dye with the nano-cellulose. 

Our process breaks down the cellulose particles to the nano level.

Due to their nano-dimension, the specific surface area of nano-cellulose fibers allows for a larger loading capability, particularly for the dye and functional molecules.

CHITOSAN

Chitosan is a material that comes from the shells of shellfish. 

This means that the dye is much less likely to bleed in the wash and that the desired color for jeans can be obtained effortlessly.

THE RESULT
