Karl Mayer continues to be successful in the denim sector and sees itself as an important partner for the influential players in the industry. The company is establishing relationships with leading brands and recently signed an agreement to pursue a joint project with Levi Strauss & Co. for a more sustainable indigo dyeing process.

With its Prodye-S unit Karl Mayer is already a leader in the fashion market, and its Prodye-R is increasingly becoming established in the rope dyeing process. Greendye, an innovation launched at the 2019 Barcelona ITMA, is based on a nitrogen dyeing system, and its advantages include highly reduced chemical consumption, best dyeing efficiency, and significant water savings.

The arguments for more sustainability and economic efficiency are convincing. This year, the innovative global player Nien Hsing was the first manufacturer to invest in Greendye by Karl Mayer. The first machine will be delivered to Taiwan by end of this year.

Denim R&D Center

The Karl Mayer Research & Development Center for Denim offers the opportunity to test the performance of Greendye by Karl Mayer on a pilot plant with individual trials. "The customer can come to us with his yarn. We dye and warp it and process it with our Italian partners into fabrics that he can compare with his previous goods," explains Stefano Agazzi, Chief of Technology and Products at Karl Mayer. The experienced denim specialist is also on hand to answer questions and help with his extensive network.
