The main focus of denim designers is to make a new garment look old. Enzymes can produce great results, without polluting the environment. In 1952 Carlsberg mapped a protein degrading enzyme for the first time. We shared this discovery with the world, kickstarting groundbreaking progress in technology and industry.
After the great success in Mexico at Exintex 2016, Tonello, global leader of garment finishing technologies, will return in South America at Colombiatex 2017. In Plaza Mayor Medellín the Italian company will present, from January 24 to 26, innovative technologies that combine fashion, ecology and efficiency in the finishing of denim garments. It will also be present at 2 conferences.
The result of research by Tonello, ECOfree is a revolutionary ozone washing system that has become the new benchmark for finishing fabrics, for healthier, more beautiful garments. With ECOfree, the ozone is dissolved in water and the indigo is degraded during washing.
ECOfree guarantees reduced consumption of water, energy and chemicals, while giving more pronounced denim effects and better performance than traditional systems, in terms of both the healthiness of the garments and eco-sustainability and worker safety.
