Dying with Mineral Dyes

A dye with less impact on the environment.

The dyeing process with mineral dyes has a lower impact on the environment for several reasons, namely the reduction of water and energy consumption. On the other hand, the products used in the process and the dyes themselves, of natural origin, are more environmentally friendly.

These dyes can be applied to almost any type of fiber used in confection, whether it be: cotton, linen, viscose, polyamides or polyester.

The available colours are extracted from natural elements, hence the color palette is not too big, nor is it possible to make colors too strong. In general, this dyeing process has an irregular appearance, and may have some small irregularities, such as stains or spots, which give the pieces an old and worn look.

They also have excellent resistance to washing, perspiration and light. Being that, in stronger colors, the fastness to wet friction reveals values close to the Indigo dye of jeans.
