NATURE
ECO-FRIENDLY DYEING SYSTEM

To help protect the natural environment, we actively use fabrics woven with indigo-dyed yarns using ECO-FRIENDLY DYEING SYSTEM. ECO-FRIENDLY DYEING SYSTEM treats all wastewater from the dyeing process in accordance with the Seto Inland Sea Water Quality Regulation Law, and introduces a boiler system that can reduce the use of heavy oil by about 40% compared to conventional methods, and uses room temperature electrolyzed water, which is an environmentally friendly dyeing method that contributes to the reduction of cleaning chemicals and CO2 emissions.
The electricity used in the factory is generated by solar power, and we are striving to use renewable energy. In addition, the sludge produced after wastewater treatment is turned into compost by bio-treating the garbage from the households of local residents, thereby reducing the amount of sludge discharged.
