A step forward into Garment Dyeing Process


The Re-Colour label refers to a two-step garment dyeing process. First, the garment
is dyed with an acid based (nylon) or direct/ reactive (natural ber) dye. Subsequently, the piece is cold pigment dyed. The pigment dye does not blend with the previous dye but wraps itself around the ber of the fabric, choosing the most easily accessible surfaces whilst avoiding seams and creases.

The result is a zonal tone-on-tone effect reminiscent of a good-quality worn-in pair of jeans or the thin coat of dust enveloping rally
car after a dry race. Hard-core fans of Italian sportswear will remember C.P. Company’s Tinto Terra series from the late 2000s, which, although limited to the use of local earth pigments, opened the door to pigment dyeing.


A woven multi lament nylon fabric derived from the nylons used in military canvas fabrics. It was developed specifically for use in garment dyeing and its characteristics are most evident in brightly coloured pieces.

Through the Re-Colour process a second layer of colour is added to the fabric, enhancing the depth and the brilliance of the garment.
Designer's comment

“The fact that Chrome is very resistant to the dyeing process, and therefore always appears various tones lighter, can be an advantage
if used knowingly when constructing mixed nylon garments.”
