What is CHROMUCH?
CHROMUCH brand fiber is solution-dyed fiber that reinvents color at the fiber level. Through ChromShield™ Technology, a new standard in sustainable color design becomes a reality. The CHROMUCH fiber uses absolutely no water for sustainable dyeing. CHROMUCH Recycled Fiber is made of recycled post-consumer plastic bottles.
As the most reliable and most eco-certified synthetic fiber available on the market, CHROMUCH fibers are rich in color, fade-resistant and earth-friendly. It's the best choice in developer-friendly performance textiles, so designers no longer need to compromise their creative vision or the planet for textile excellence.
ChromShield™ Technology is a new yarn structure, incorporating a shield layer that wraps around the core solution-dyed yarn. This 'shield' gives the fiber additional color, protection, and the ability to add functional technology.
CHROMUCH is "Color without Compromise."
Conscious Performance Fibers + Trend-right Colors + Low MOQ = Design Made Easy

What Is Solution Dyeing?
The World Bank reports that traditional dyeing processes use 5.8 trillion liters of water annually. Dyeing 8,000 kg (8.8 tons) of fabric requires approximately 1.6 million liters (422,700 gallons) of water. It is also estimated that energy used during the dyeing process to heat, dry, and operate the dye/finishing machines is nearly the cost of the dyestuff itself.
In addition, the wastewater from dyeing textiles is considered to be the most polluting of all industries, based on its volume and composition. According to World Bank estimates, textile dyeing and finishing operations account for 17-20% of industrial water pollution. Annually, more than 50,000 tons of dyes are discharged in the form of liquid waste or sewage into our rivers and the sea.
As a comparison — In solution dyeing, the dye is added to the liquid fiber solution BEFORE the fibers are extruded. As a result, no additional water is used, energy requirements are greatly reduced, and pollution waste is minimized. Since the color is part of the initial liquid solution, this process permeates the color through the entire fiber. The color is therefore inherent, permanent, fade-resistant, and sustainable.
