About the Spinner & The Eco Sustainable yarns used in our Harvest Golds Capsule by Steven Oo

Shinnaigai Textile is a Japanese company renowned for the excellence of its complete production process from spinning, to weaving, knitting and garment making. Creativity, innovation, high standards, flexible manufacturing technology and know-how represent the key Shinnaigai <>, that enables the company to promote and demonstrate its unique fashion culture coupled with a high consideration for wellbeing, health and the environment

The Shinnaigai spinning system has established new standards in high quality yarns for the production of consistent, performing fabrics. This includes the production of high-tech, sustainable ranges such as Botantical dye by Colorball. These qualities and fabrics are based on TENCEL, Organics cotton and organic bamboo materials

Botanicaldye by Colorball. This is the latest, highly innovative and original patented Japanese technology. Botanticaldye by Colorball combines the best of nature with new, cutting edge technology to create beautiful, dynamic and aesthetically fascinating, yet still truly responsible fabrics that havea. completely new and unique color perspective.

And now, lets talk about colour! Nature is filled with many colours, there are 500,000 or more species of plants and among these Shinnaigai can use at least 3,000 for its range. Man has been using plants as natural colour source for about 7,000 years, but it has been long known that it is not easy to create, managed and control colours derived from plants. Today, with the collaboration with its dedicated laboratory of skilled engineers, Shinnaigai has been able to deliver a brand new and patented technology that can transform a natural dyestuff into a nano level, and then to combine these materials with perfectly safe chemicals certified by Oekotex.

This technology enables the dying of any textile fibre in a variety of stable and fast colours that now meet the standards expected by the global fashion system. It is the important innovation that most conventional natural dyes have never been able to achieve!

The Botanicaldye by Colorball range is based on very particular dyestuffs extracted from all of natures ‘Four Seasons’ of the flowers, fruits and tea leaves, as well as materials from leaves, stems, roots and seeds. These are gathered each season then preserved in dry conditions, and transformed to create one of the widest ranges of beautiful, natural colours based completely on botanical resources.

Another unique characteristic of Botanicaldye by Colorball is that this fibre dyed method is completely different from conventionally yarn dyed or piece dyed products. in effect, in the manufacturing process of Botanicdye melange yarns, the dyed finer is blend as a part of the finished yarn, the remainder is simply made of raw white, undid material!

It is for this reason that the Botanicadye by Colorball is able to dramatically reduce the use of water and chemical materials, so marking them out as a new range of low impact, environmentally sensitive products.
