Making cotton dyeing


The way cotton is dyed today is fundamentally flawed.

That flaw wreaks havoc on the environment, people, and business. ColorZen’s revolutionary technology solves this by applying a patented treatment to raw cotton, making the dyeing process far more efficient and sustainable.

Currently, dyeing cotton is wasteful, toxic, and expensive.

Natural Resource Strain

The cotton dyeing process is outdated. Its inefficient nature demands excessive water and energy.

Cotton dyeing is wasteful, depleting our precious drinking water

Freshwater Pollution

What goes into a dye machine must come out. Wastewater treatment is unfortunately not the norm, and is often too expensive for dyehouses to use.

Most of the toxic water goes down the drain untreated, killing fish and polluting our waters

Cost Risk

Inefficiency costs money. A shrinking supply of water and a growing demand for it means more expensive dyeing.

The dyeing process is also antiquated and slow, causing it to be unnecessarily expensive

ColorZen offers a simple, yet holistic solution for cotton dyeing

Resource Preservation

Large amounts of water and energy serve as agents to force a dyeing reaction. With ColorZen, those are no longer needed and thus dramatically reduced.

ColorZen protects our freshwater supply by reducing water use by as much as 90%


Salt, one of the primary chemicals in cotton dyeing, is no longer needed to create beautiful, lasting color.

With ColorZen, cotton and dye are naturally compatible, so up to 95% of toxic chemicals can be eliminated

Cost Efficiency

Shorter dyeing times means less fixed cost and more efficient production. Significantly lower water, energy, and chemical use means less expensive raw materials.

Sustainability and economics are not mutually exclusive. Dyehouses can now increase their production capacity 300%
