KIPA is the new way to dye cotton fabric . We’ve found a way to treat cotton before we spin it in such a way that once it gets to the dye house the dye is absorbed much faster, thus saving at least
60% WATER AND 20% OF ENERGY IN THE PROCESS.
We have done this by changing the polarity of the cotton making it better prepared to absorb dyes. By doing this you don't need to add any salt or other chemicals to the dyeing process making this the most sustainable way to dye cotton.
Also the residual water has at least 80% less chemicals and other harmful products.
THIS MAKES KIPA A SUSTAINABLE AND LESS HARMFUL FABRIC FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
We are aware that the cotton manufacturing industry has to make a change and we decided to use all of our resources to find a better way to dye cotton, one that does not pollutes any water but also one which uses the least amount of energy and more importantly less water than any other sustainable product on the market.
We have recently obtained the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification for KIPA and we are proud to be verified by AENOR, validating our practices and methods.
OUR PRODUCT LINES
Jersey, ribb, french terry and Interlock. Any of the commercial structures can also be done by using the Kipa Melange.
What differentiates the Kipa Melange from a regular one is that you can get a “Melange look” on a 100% cotton based by dyeing fabric.
Jersey, ribb, french terry and interlock. Any of the commercial structures can also be done in the traditional heather yarn blend, but keeping our DNA of sustainability. We have dyed the natural cotton fiber with the KIPA process, making it the most sustainable 100% cotton heather in the world and also maintaining the "Heather look" that our clients love.

In addition to being environmentally friendly, this new line has the required textile finishing to tailor high quality sportswear: Sustainable dyeing, UV, Antimicrobial, Wicking & Easy care.
