The dyeing is one of the most polluting processes in the fashion industry and with high production costs. Jeanologia is committed to creating an ethical and ecoefficient textile industry. This new technology makes an efficient and sustainable alternative possible, hitting a new milestone in the textile industry.

Enrique Silla, CEO at Jeanologia, states that Colorbox considerably reduces water, chemical, energy and salts use in comparison with traditional garment dyeing processes, allowing a low EIM score. “The average saving for water and chemicals is 60%, 45% for energy and 76% for salt in garment dyeing.”

The main cost of garment dyeing is the cost of reproducibility. With Colorbox it is possible achieve perfect reproducibility the first time with high-quality products and reduced production times. Jeanologia creates a new ecoefficient operating model for garment dyeing. This technology makes it is possible to dye the product, not only at the beginning of the process, but at any point during the manufacturing of the product, responding quickly to customer demands.

Silla describes how “this allows us to reduce product color decision making deadlines, decreasing lead time to between two weeks and 48 hours in compared with the 18 weeks needed in traditional processes.”
