Fabric dyeing is a process that has been practiced since the early days of mankind. Originally used to color textiles that were used as basic garments and home décor, dyeing throughout the centuries has evolved to a major global industry. Our dyeing services are used by customers from New York City, Chicago, Illinois, Florida, and Los Angeles, California.
Dyeing spans across many sectors of the textile industry, from home décor, the fashion industry, and the intimate apparel industry. There are many different processes of dyeing, all involve different classes of dyes depending on the fiber and whether the textiles are knit or woven. In addition to dyeing in the modern world there are a multitude of different chemical procedures that can be performed in conjunction with the dye formula, which is combined in the dye bath. This enables cross dyeing processes on multiple fibers as well as dyeing a multitude of different fibers. Dyeing to meet spectral tolerances is a technical process that involves the use of a spectrophotometer, light boxes, and a launderometer.
Cotton fabrics tend to condition post drying, which means the approved spectral reading may slightly alter. This needs to be accounted for when dyeing natural fibers such as cotton. When dyeing synthetic fibers such as polyester conditioning is not a factor, since the dye saturates the fiber and is permanent when the fiber has cooled.
