We are proud to show you our innovative print, that can be printed and unprinted infinitively, without damaging the textile. A close collaboration with Gina Tricot has enabled this progress, this would not have been possible without partners.

We give clothes
a second chance,
and a third,
We buy 60% more clothes than in the year 2000, using them for half as long. But it still takes approximately 2,700 liters of water to make one single cotton t-shirt.
10% of clothes are discarded by consumers due to colour related issues. And less than 20% of clothes are reused or recycled once discarded.
Removing colour is one of the main obstacles in textile recycling. 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.
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.
