While 99% of colors are produced from fossil resources, Pili produces bio-based dyes and pigments to provide a sustainable alternative to polluting dyes in the textile industry. In an improved way, Pili reproduces the process used naturally by certain bacteria, from the soil or from mushrooms, to produce color.
Placed in large fermentation tanks at room temperature, the microorganisms break down renewable plant materials, such as sugar and wood, and transform them into dyes. The pigments are then separated from the bacteria and put together to obtain the desired range of colors.
Congratulations for this great innovation!
