Sustainability at the Thread Level

Sustainable Dyeing Solutions

It’s easy. It’s clean. It’s efficient. It’s profitable.
Most importantly, it’s sustainable.

Across the textile and apparel industry, designers, brands and manufacturers are seeking ways to minimize the environmental impact of their operations and find more sustainable solutions. Some of the efforts are voluntary, some will be forced by regulatory changes.

But the one element that is often overlooked in this process is thread, the most basic staple in textiles and apparel. And dyed thread has as much as a 40% waste factor. That means that almost half of the world’s dyed thread makes its way unused into landfills or incinerated.

Bring your thread and yarn dye house in-house. With Twine’s sustainable dyeing solution, you can simply dye raw, standard white, or off-the-shelf filament and spun polyester as needed, for a significant reduction in your environmental footprint.

By creating an on-demand system for thread and yarn dyeing requiring only a standard electrical outlet and ink, Twine’s thread and yarn dyeing machine will significantly aid the textile and apparel supply chain by reducing its environmental impact.

Waterless dyeing

Twine's waterless dying machine replaces the polluting dye house – saving millions of gallons of water and protecting waterways from dye-related pollutants. Thread dyeing can consume about 70 liters of water per kilogram of thread. Twine’s process consumes zero water.

Reducing air emission

Dyeing thread with Twine system eliminates VOCs and the energy consumed in logistics and transporting swatches and thread around the globe.

Green technology

Twine’s system does not release fumes or steam, and has minimal chemical waste. It is programmed to use very precise amounts of ink in the dyeing and treatment process, so there are no excess chemicals to wash.
