is the first product worldwide to up-cycle wasted graphite powder in order to offer an innovative and sustainable alternative for fabric dyeing.
We are talking about innovation inspired by tradition: graphite is today wasted in vast quantities by the tech industry, but the Romans used to rely on it to dye their own fabrics thousands of years ago. Could this modern-day waste become then a raw material in a new, circular supply chain to offer the fashion industry an alternative to chemical dyes and tech companies an up-cycling solution to their by-products?
