EARTHCOLORS

Organic in nature, cotton plant material can be returned to the earth and will biodegrade. But scientists at Archroma Chemical have partnered with Cotton Incorporated to explore methods to extract a valuable resource from the plant material than can be used to create a bio-based dyestuff, suitable for dyeing cotton, and without harmful chemical waste during processing. Although processed with other chemicals during manufacturing, these bio-based dyes use less harmful chemicals and are overall more sustainable than traditional petrochemical based dyes.

Now, cotton can be dyed with cotton.
