Turkey-based Calik Denim and Dutch clean-tech company The Movement, have teamed up to develop the latest in fully traceable water-free indigo dyeing technology. Dyepro X Aware combines Calik's Dyepro eco-conscious dyeing technology with The Movement's Aware traceability technology to provide water-free indigo dyeing.
According to the firms, this newest denim fabric is the most advanced, sustainable, and transparent option on the market.
Calik Denim invented an environmentally friendly dyeing process that is reported to not require even a single drop of water and does not cause chemical waste, whereas traditional indigo dyeing requires 20 liters of water per meter of fabric. In terms of appearance and color, it is comparable to traditional indigo dyeing.
Calik Denim claims that by combining its Dyepro technology with Aware, it can create fully traceable low-impact dyed denim fabric.
Aware allows businesses to track fibers, yarns, and finished garments at every stage of the supply chain. Independent impact studies were conducted by Calik Denim, resulting in a validated EPD (Environmental Product Declaration). Aware is using this impact data as an input to its blockchain technology.
Feico van der Veen, founder and managing director of The Movement, said that they worked closely with Calik Denim to make this unusual partnership materialize. They witnessed the Calik team's commitment to developing genuine, long-term solutions. As a result, they are honored to be able to complement their truly sustainable ideas with their Aware traceability technology.
A physical tracer is added to the yarn before it is woven into the fabric, which has then been colored with Dyepro technology without using water. Aware builds a blockchain-based digital twin of the fabric, complete with EPD effect data. As a result, each finished garment manufactured with this fabric has its own distinct fingerprint.
This fingerprint can be read out with a scanner at any point during the process to verify that the dying is water-free. Aware can tell the difference between fake Dyepro waterless dyed cloth and genuine Dyepro waterless colored fabric with a simple scan.
