SpinDye®

Simultaneous spinning and dyeing – saving water, chemicals and energy

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.

  • 75% less water
  • 67% less chemicals
  • 39% less energy
  • 20% lower carbon footprint
