We give clothes

a second chance,

and a third,

a fourth,

a fifth...

We buy 60% more clothes now than in the year 2000, but we only use them for half as long.

Removing old colour is one of the main obstacles in textile recycling processes.

It's time to make a difference.


Vividye colours, decolours, and recolours textiles again and again.

We have developed a printing technology that can be used to apply all kinds of colours and designs to textiles. Unlike other methods, our technology is designed to facilitate the removal of the applied colour when it is no longer wanted without harming the material. In other words, we make it possible to colour, decolour and recolour textiles again and again.


Our story

Two chemists at Chalmers University of Technology first came up with a concept that was meant to provide a solution to the colour-related inefficiencies the textile industry faces when trying to reuse and recycle garments. The reversible printing technology that resulted from four years of development is now the cornerstone of Vividye, and is now ready to be implemented in a variety of circular business models.
