Artistic Milliners’ Cutting Edge Innovation Through Collaboration

January, 2024

Artistic Milliners expands on its proven track record of sustainability initiatives in clean energy, organic cotton, and regenerative agriculture at the Kingpins show.

Archroma X Artistic Milliners: Sustainable Dyeing for the Future 

Our partnership with Archroma, a global leader in specialty chemicals promotes cutting-edge sustainable dyeing, including more eco-advanced sulfur black dyeing for denim with the groundbreaking DIRESUL® EVOLUTION BLACK dyestuff. This innovative dye delivers outstanding resource savings, using less water, energy, and CO2 during production, and generates less wastewater and unwanted effluents. Additionally, DIRESUL® EVOLUTION BLACK offers unique shade and washdown behavior for eye-catching aesthetics and is laser-friendly, making it a perfect choice for sustainable and stylish denim. 

Ultra-Soft Luxury with Tencel 32MM 

Artistic Milliners and Lenzing have joined forces to introduce a collection of denim fabrics made from Tencel’s newest fiber, 32MM. These fabrics are optimized to create ultra-soft fabrications with the authentic look of a classic pair of jeans, without compromising on comfort. Tencel 32MM offers exceptional softness, breathability, and moisture management, making it ideal for denim that feels as good as it looks. 

BioBlack TX: Carbon-Negative Black Pigment 

In collaboration with Nature Coatings, Artistic Milliners presents the Nature Coatings X Artistic Milliners capsule collection. This collection features the innovative use of BioBlack TX, a 100% bio-based, carbon negative and non-toxic black pigment derived from wood waste. This sustainable alternative to petroleum-derived carbon black is applied to 100% cotton denim, actively reducing our carbon footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future for the denim industry. 

Double Beam: Comfort and Durability 

Artistic Milliners and The LYCRA Company have teamed up to create the Double Beam collection, which unlocks a new level of comfort in denim. This collection utilizes LYCRA® T400® EcoMade fiber, which is made from recycled content and provides exceptional stretch and recovery. The Double Beam collection offers superior comfort, durability, and hand-feel, making it ideal for denim that can keep up with your active lifestyle.
