Sustainability is at the very core of what we do and we believe that for a technology to be truly impactful, it needs to be sustainable environmentally, financially and socially. As such, not only is our dyeing process eco-friendly and cost-competitive to conventional methods, but our model is designed to cause the minimum amount of social disruption to ensure we are not displacing people whose livelihoods depend on this industry.
By harnessing biology as a manufacturing capability, we can transform an industry
The Colorifix process uses at least 68% less water than conventional dyeing practices, and up to 90% for synthetic fibres.
Our pioneering technology improves the status quo for all stakeholders.
We can provide fashion brands with a greener product that doesn't compromise on quality.
In order for natural pigments to achieve wide-scale adoption, they need to meet industry standards such as high colour fastness scores. At Colorifix, we provide the first non-toxic and cost competitive solution where results compete with synthetic dyes in independently certified tests.
We can offer manufacturers solutions that don't require investment in specialist equipment.
Our technology plugs in to existing infrastructure in dye houses. It also reduces reliance on a host of chemicals whose rising costs have depressed margins and for which availability is not always guaranteed. So manufacturers can win on price, while boosting their eco-credentials.
We are showing that water consumption, pollution and CO2 emissions can be reduced on a huge scale.
The Colorifix process works on a liquor-to-fabric ratio of 1:6 at a temperature of just 37 degrees, and instead of all of the standard auxiliary chemicals, it uses one non-toxic additive. By localising production of our liquor at or near the dye house itself, we further reduce transport costs and carbon emissions.
