Efficient color management. Finally.
Our uniquely sophisticated and precise Color System has the ability to determine any shade and nuance of color available on earth – we guarantee that it will be as you expect it to be. It is the most rational way to simplify working with color, eliminating all guesswork.
Our color system is a universal description of all colors as perceived by the human eye. Each color has a unique code, illuminating how that particular nuance relates to six base colors: yellow, red, blue, green, black and white and in terms of varying shades of black, white and chromaticity. With extreme precision, we are able to pinpoint any hue on any surface, and ensure that the result is exactly as anticipated.

The SpinDye®-method of coloring
Masterbatch, Performance and Sustainability
By adding the pigment to the spinning solution, prior to extrusion, the pigment becomes a homogenous part of the fiber. The dirty and environmentally hazardous process of dyeing is eliminated from the production process. This production method demonstrates several functional benefits:
Pick the color out the 1950 colors in the SpinDye®-Color System. This color has its own unique recipe, the color pigment is mixed and highly condensed and becomes our Masterbatch. This is mixed and melted with clear polyester. Homogeny colored threads are extruded, and spun to a yard and weaved or knitted to fabrics of your desire.
Excellent colorfastness that withstands sunlight, laundry detergent, abrasion, and even bleach. Resulting in perfect color consistency between finishes and zero deviations between batches.
- Homogenous hues, regardless of different fabrics and finishes & monochrome product lines
- A recipe based master batch delivers 100% accurate color consistency from season to season & batch to batch.
- Colored yarn opens a whole new world of opportunities in respect to patterns and color combinations when using woven or knitted techniques.
A recipe based master batch delivers 100% accurate color consistency from season to season & batch to batch. The pellets (the masterbatch) in the image above consists of highly condensed color pigment.
Our color system is highly developed and every shade of the 1,950 available nuances, has its exact place in our color space.
Recipe based colors
Every color within our color space has its own precise recipe. This guarantees the blending of the color pigment to be precise and perfect. Every time. Every batch.
Color consistency problems are now obsolete. With We aRe SpinDye®, you can be certain that your choice of color remains consistent regardless of different textiles. Every time. Every batch.
The SpinDye®-coloring process
The SpinDye®-coloring method focuses primarily on working with polyester and recycled polyester. A trailblazing and sustainable technique, soon be the new industry standard.
Since the color is mixed in with the material at the very beginning of the process, the durability and fastness of the fabric is vastly superior to that of traditional textiles.
An important fact to note is that all of the fabrics are made from one single source of yarn and thread, which means exceptional resource efficiency and very little waste, every inch of material is used in the process. The exact science of the SpinDye®-color system rules out the need for trial & error, guaranteeing perfect results every time.
Colored yarn opens a whole new world of opportunities in respect to patterns and color combinations when using woven or knitted techniques.
For the sport/outdoor brand or fashion house, having foresight and being proactive will help reduce the amount of failed lab-dips and rejected dye lots and it’s just good business sense. As for the rest of the world: it’s a hugely sustainable program. Peace of mind comes with the knowledge that waste, chemicals and water use are kept to an absolute minimum.
