REACTIVE DYES

Reactive dyes are synthetic dyes that adhere through chemical reactions to the fibres of the fabric.

It is estimated that 20% of all industrial water pollution is due to traditional fabric dyeing and treatment. This is the result of the large amount of chemicals used, the large amount of water required and the polluted wastewater generated during the dyeing process. These by-products often end up being discharged into rivers and seas, affecting ecosystems and contaminating the drinking water of the local population. 

Unlike conventional dyes, low-impact fibre reactive dyes use 90% fewer chemicals. The chemicals that are used are non-toxic to humans and the environment as that are easily broken down by plants and microbes. Most of the dye is absorbed into the fabric, so there are far fewer residual substances than traditional dyes. And, as well as requiring much less water because there are no nasty chemicals to remove from the garment, used water can also be recycled through filtration processes and reused in future batches. 

We work with organic cotton fabrics with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certificate to guarantee that: our fabrics contain at least 70% organic fibre; that the cultivation and production process has been carried out through fair working conditions; and that logistical aspects such as import and export, labelling, packaging, transportation have been carried out in an ethical manner.

The fabrics of our garments, made from natural fibres, seek to eliminate synthetic residues and chemical materials. We are committed to working with fibres that allow for the final garment to close the cycle through recycling or biodegradability.
