Recycrom creates a full range of pigment powders using textile fibers from used clothing and manufacturing waste.
Through a sophisticated production process using only natural chemicals, fabric fibers are crystalised into an incredibly fine powder that can be used as a pigment dye for fabrics and garments made of cotton, wool, nylon or any natural fiber and blend. Recycrom can be applied using various methods: exhaustion dyeing, dipping, spray, screen printing and coating.
In contrast to other dyes, Recycrom is applied as a suspension and not as part of a chemical solution. It’s therefore easily filtered from the water – cutting both costs and environmental impact.
Since Recycrom uses 100% recycled materials, slight colour variation can occur with larger productions. However if required, these inconsistencies can be adjusted by using less than 1% of a traditional dye.
Brands can collaborate with Officina+39 to make custom dyes from their own scraps and textile waste.
Backed by winning the Hightex Award at Munich Fabric Start for Autumn/Winter 17/18, Recycrom may prove to be the biggest dyestuff innovation of the last 50 years.
To be part of the solution – by building on our past.
