Title: Natural dyes
The project which the company intends to develop is part of an ambitious path that aims to make it one of the main players in the dyeing of fabrics and yarns using exclusively natural colours.
This process, which started a year ago, has already completed the following phases: study and choice of the dyes, study of the pigment extraction process, research of the auxiliary products necessary to improve the yield of the dye, study of the application process, choice of the fibres to be used, analysis and study of the concentrations to be used, replicability on wool.
This first phase, which laid the preliminary foundation, requires an important contribution of technical-scientific knowledge to further boost the path towards an optimal conclusion.
At this point, the phases to be implemented and the subject of this investigation are focused on the treatment of cellulose and organic fibres (cotton, linen, silk) and are the following:
