Simultaneous spinning and dyeing – saving water, chemicals and energy
Traditional textile dyeing is done by immersing fabric in a dye bath, rinsing it and then drying it. With SpinDye® the pigments are instead added to the spinning solution before it is extruded through the spinneret to become fibers for fabric weaving.
Through this process, the color pigments become a part of the fiber and the SpinDye® fabric gains excellent colour fastness that stands up to light, washing, rubbing, per-spiration – even bleach.
The environmental benefits are the most important reason behind Fjällräven using SpinDye® fabrics in our collection. But better colorfastness in combination with less chemical waste and the reduced use of water makes SpinDye® a great choice also on behalf of our superior quality standards.
These are the reductions with SpinDye® recycled pet, when compared to virgin polyester with tradition dyeing.
- 75% less water
- 67% less chemicals
- 39% less energy
- 20% lower carbon footprint
