Our Environment, our responsibility

About the textile industry

The textile industry is the third most polluting industry in the world (coming after oil and agriculture)

Textile production is the second biggest water polluter, mostly because of the dyeing process and is estimated at 20% of water pollution.

Every year, an enormous amount of toxic chemicals are released into our environment, and end up in a landfill never to biodegrade.

We think that production, waste and recycling
are important issues to address.

On demand production
This means we don’t print until you order it. This eliminates large minimums and dead stock that is hugely wasteful.

Low energy consumption
In the printing and production processes, we use about 10% of the industry average for textile production.

Zero water consumption
Our printers don’t require any water to produce the brightest colours. For an industry that is responsible for 20% of water pollution, this is a huge step!

Low waste production
We aim to use all of the cloth that is printed, and with the small offcuts that we have (about 1% of all production) is recycled with a textile recycling firm in Sydney.

A knowledgable team of printers
They know the machines like the back of their hands. They are regularly serviced and updated to ensure the highest efficiency with the lowest impact.
