Traditional textile dyeing is done by immersing fabric in a dye bath, rinsing it and then drying it. With SpinDye® the pigments are instead added to the spinning solution before it is extruded through the spinneret to become fibers for fabric weaving.
Through this process, the color pigments become a part of the fiber and the SpinDye® fabric gains excellent colour fastness that stands up to light, washing, rubbing, per-spiration – even bleach.
The environmental benefits are the most important reason behind Fjällräven using SpinDye® fabrics in our collection. But better colorfastness in combination with less chemical waste and the reduced use of water makes SpinDye® a great choice also on behalf of our superior quality standards.
These are the reductions with SpinDye® recycled pet, when compared to virgin polyester with tradition dyeing.
It’s been used for decades and has won the hearts of people all over the world without changing its timeless design. But now a new version of Kånken is being released.
