With technology that uses one single white thread to create millions of colors and intricate patterns, Coloreel unlocks new design possibilities, while providing environmental benefits. By dyeing a 100% recycled polyester thread in real time, water consumption is reduced by at least 97% compared to traditional dyeing methods. In addition, the technology significantly reduces thread waste.
Coloreel technology from Coloreel Group AB, Jönköping/Sweden, provides significant environmental benefits for the textile industry. The company's sustainability operations are now quantified and third-party verified.
When Coloreel technology for digital thread dyeing was launched, the aim was to streamline an embroidery industry characterized by slow processes, difficulty in creating complicated designs and an excessive use of resources. The company has now published both a complete life cycle analysis (LCA) and an environmental product declaration (EPD) in the international database Environdec. Both documents are verified by a third party, the Swedish consulting company Miljögiraff AB, Goteborg/Sweden.
Through the documentation, a comparison can be made between Coloreel's technology and one of the world's leading thread manufacturers. Their public sustainability report shows that traditional thread dyeing produces 50 times more wastewater than Coloreel's direct dyeing does.
