From fiber to finish, Archroma's chemical technology plays a key role throughout the entire value chain. Archroma in collaboration with the Consulate General of Switzerland, organized an exclusive denim art exhibition at Mohatta Palace in Karachi on Thursday as tribute to the buoyant denim industry in Pakistan.

The exhibition was organized under the theme "Jewels of the Sea", the exhibition highlighted how denim and indigo together inspire designers and artists. The exhibits comprised of original paintings, artifacts, and antique objects exploring the interrelation between indigo and denim.

Interestingly, indigo was first discovered centuries ago in the vicinity of Jamshoro, Pakistan, from where its trade was initiated to other parts of the world.

Archroma has the distinction to bring indigo back to its roots by starting its production of liquid indigo at its plant at Jamshoro.

Speaking at the occasion, Emil Wyss, Consul General of Switzerland, said that Pakistan has a rich cultural heritage and its connectivity with its main crop - cotton - is fascinating. The local textile industry has, therefore, grown manifolds due to ample availability of raw material. The exhibition gave them a deep insight of past and present and is an excellent chronicle of the country's craftsmanship.

The exhibition was visited by a number of dignitaries, brand owners and retailers, as well as denim manufacturers, from Pakistan and abroad.
