Show Notes

This week’s guest on The WTiN Podcast is Andreas Andrén, CEO at We aRe SpinDye. 

Founded in 2014, We aRe SpinDye has developed a colouring method that focuses on the coloration of the recycled material before it is extruded to fibre and spun into yarn. By melting colour pigments and the recycled polyester mass together, homogenously coloured yarns are created, without the use of water. This method helps to reduce water by 75%, limit chemicals by 90%, and improve energy consumption by 30-40%.

In this episode, Andrén talks about how the process works step-by-step and explains how brands – big or small – can work with the team to integrate this method into their manufacturing process. Elsewhere, he talks about the benefits of switching to spin dyeing, the challenges that companies would have to consider, how the company is exploring other applications in addition to recycled polyester, and how the business is embracing digitalisation.
