AirDye Fabrics from Colorep reduce the amount of water used in dying fabrics by 95% and reduce energy use by 85%. With over 2.5 trillion gallons of water being used annually to dye fabrics this is an option you should consider for any design which requires dyed fabric. The process can be used to apply a different color or pattern to each side of the fabric. It is suitable for synthetic fabrics, which include those made entirely of recycled PET bottles. If you require a fabric which is not made of recycled material, a life cycle analysis of the cost/benefit trade-offs is required to compare AirDye fabric to organic fabrics. It represents a clear win, however, over the vast array of commercially dyed synthetics currently in use. Learn more from the Fast Company article on this Designer's Accord case study.
