Our fascination for seaweed colors
We have always had a fascination for colors, textiles, seaweed, and sustainability. That’s why we decided to upscale the artisanal seaweed dye process to an industrial level. Our aim is to replace as many dangerous synthetic dyes with our seaweed dyes as possible.
The sea has so much to offer – and it needs protection now more than ever.
Seaweed, one of the sea’s most recognizable – albeit underrated – inhabitants, has been utilized, harvested, and cultivated in coastal communities for centuries. Yet, only recently, seaweed has emerged as a novel resource for the textile industry. 70% of our world is water, so there’s a lot of seaweed for our dyes. It doesn’t need precious agricultural ground or freshwater to grow. It even cleans the air from CO2 and produces oxygen.
At Zeefier, this is what keeps us going every day.
