Solution Dye

Solution Dyeing is a more sustainable coloring method which reduces the environmental impact compared to traditional dyeing processes. By adding the color pigments much earlier in the production process the use of water and chemicals is significantly reduced, which in turn means less energy consumption and a smaller carbon footprint. For traditional dyeing methods the fiber is produced first and then the color is added much later in the process. This requires a lot of water and chemicals, which means energy and water consumption is much higher. Solution dyeing means adding the color pigment earlier in the manufacturing process, when the polyester is just little pellets. Once these pellets are colored, they are melted and turned into fibers, which are then spun into yarn. According to our supplier We aRe Spindye® their method of coloring reduces water usage by 75%, chemical usage by 90%, energy consumption by 25% and CO2 emissions by 30% compared to traditional dyeing. These claims have been audited and validated by Swedish research organization RISE.
