Fabulous Fungi formulates a solution to the problems in of textile dye by using fungi for a sustainable textile dye. Fungi use biochemical processes to produce pigments, making the impact different from fossil-based heat and extraction processes.
On a lab scale, their way of dyeing appears to result in a large reduction of CO2 emissions and water use. The fungal pigments that form the basis of the textile dye are biodegradable. This means: If remnants of the dye bath end up in the sewer and/or rivers, there will be no pollution of the water. In addition, the use of these fungi are 100% safe for both the person working with the dye and the person ultimately wearing the dyed garment. Thus, no health problems are involved. Hence, Fabulous Fungi dye has many benefits over synthetic textile dye and other alternatives.
