Turning waste into wearable fabrics
All our products are made from 100% recycled PET bottle flakes. Using innovative technology that saves water and energy, we only process used (post-consumer waste) PET bottles into the purest PET flakes, before extruding them into high-quality yarns.
To turn plastic bottles into yarn, we adopt the Physical Method. Compared to the Chemical Method, which is costly and creates secondary waste pollution, the Physical Method is much cleaner, and the production costs lower.
More color, less pollution. Dope Dyeing also known as Solution Dyeing substantially reduces the eco-footprint of your product.
The apparel industry uses excessive amounts of water and toxic chemicals to make raw materials and clothing. This makes textile dyeing the second largest polluter of clean water globally after agriculture, and further strengthens the case for cleaner more sustainable practices in the fashion industry.
Every ton of dope dyed yarn produced saves 15 tons of water, 2 tons of steam and 1 ton of coal. It also reduces the discharge of 15 tons of printing and dyeing wastewater, as well as 24kg of sulfur dioxide, 25kg of smoke and 144kg of slag.
HOW WE DO IT
When the PET bottle flakes are turned into a solution, pigments are added directly to it. This substance is then extruded to become colored yarn. Compared to traditional wet dyeing where dye is added after the yarn is made, dope dyeing saves around 80% water and significantly reduces the use of chemicals, energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Dope dyeing is also a shorter process that creates more even and durable results with superior colorfastness. With the recipe developed for over 2000 Pantone colors, we offer a broad color range of dope dyed yarns.
