An Invention to Dye For

The textile industry consumes large amounts of water, and a lot of that goes into the dyeing process. Conventional textile dyeing is said to require an estimated 100 to 150 litres of water to process one kilogramme of textile materials. Not only are dye houses, and particularly in Asia, known to exhaust local water supplies, but they also end up dumping untreated wastewater into local streams and rivers. Adding colour to garments is therefore a step in the design process that leaves a significant footprint on the environment.
