offering sustainable dyeing processes for synthetic materials in the clothing industry.
Instead of soaking the finished fabrics in a chemical bath, dye is melted into the fabric’s plastic
fibres. This novel approach dramatically cuts down on the use of water, chemicals, carbon
dioxide and energy.
The fabric – and therefore the finished product – performs wonderfully, resulting in a greatly
reduced impact on the environment. The colours withstand UV radiation, washing and wearand-
tear much better than in conventionally-dyed garments.
“For us, it’s incredibly cool to see that Odd Molly has taken sustainability seriously and
accepted the challenge to implement more sustainable manufacturing for their collection in
collaboration with We aRe SpinDye®,” says Martin Berling, co-founder of We aRe SpinDye®.
Odd Molly utilised this process to design the “Earth Saver jacket”, created with 100% recycled
polyester fabric. Moreover, the padding is environmentally-friendly since it’s made from a
plant-based material with insulating properties comparable to down.
“Our goal is to constantly improve and continue to increase the amount of sustainable materials
and products in our line. The result of the collaboration with We aRe SpinDye® is a
product we’re really proud of, completely in line with our goal to supply our customers with
timeless clothing of high quality and as small an environmental footprint as possible,” confides
Kristin Roos, the Production Manager at Odd Molly.
The following efficiency gains have been achieved from using the recycled SpinDye® PET
plastic compared to new polyester that’s conventionally dyed:
75% less water
90% fewer chemicals
30% less energy
25% Co2 imprints
