JF Almeida has a new line of natural dyes for cotton fibres that allows to save 30% of water and 20% of the dying time, when compared to the traditional dyeing process. It is called LandColors, and also has the peculiarity of avoiding salt in the dyeing process. An option with low environmental impact and free of toxic products that cause allergies and skin irritations.
To keep up with the market’s demands, JF Almeida had already presented, at the end of 2020, an innovative dyeing process that used tea leaves, called Infusion. The textile company has its own dyeing unit, capable of dyeing 1,100 tons monthly, which makes it one of the largest in Europe.
According to its official website, JF Almeida offers dyeing and finishing services for terrycloths, quilts, fabrics and yarns in any type of fibre. It also has a 24-hour laboratory that can create new colours in just one day, and infrared dyeing machines: “two polyglycol dyeing machines and an automatic dyeing pipetting machine”, explains the company.
