Cone Denim Launches Next Evolution Of Sustainblue™ — Eco-Friendly Salt-Free Denim In The Americas

GREENSBORO, N.C. — April 2, 2019 — Cone Denim® has launched the next evolution of its Sustainblue™ collection with eco-friendly Distilled Indigo™denims. Cone is bringing Dystar’s Cadira® Denim dyeing process to the Americas as part of its commitment to sustainable solutions and innovation. Cadira styles of Distilled Indigo will debut at Kingpins Amsterdam, April 10-11, 2019.

Distilled Indigo fabrics are dyed using pre-reduced liquid indigo dyes which are the cleanest in the market, reducing chemicals and achieving energy and water savings. As the first mill to introduce Cadira Distilled Indigo in the western hemisphere, this collection combines Dystar® Indigo Vat 40% Solution, the most eco- awarded Indigo in the world, with the ecologically advanced reducing agent Sera® Con C-RDA to create a salt-free dye that completely eliminates hydrosulphite. The Cadira process reduces water, waste and energy consumption, and results in strong effluent load reduction to better support mills, brands and retailers in their efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of their goods.

“As a leader in the evolution of sustainable denims, we are excited to offer Cadira to our customers,” says Pierette Scavuzzo, director, product design for Cone Denim. “Our partnership with Dystar reflects our shared commitment to sustainable products and continued innovation. Cadira Distilled Indigo fabrics are part of Cone Denim’s Modern Retro capsule, capturing the authentic spirit of denim, with the most sustainable ingredients and the highest standard of S Gene® stretch performance. Better for the earth; better for our brand partners.”
