Pantone strive to supply products which are sustainable and less damaging to the environment than their legacy products. Pantone work with their suppliers of paper, dyes and pigments to identify the best materials for the products for both quality and sustainability.
The most recent colours additions to the Pantone Fashion & Home cotton range were developed in conjunction with Huntsman Textile Effects using Huntsman’s AVITERA® SE range of dyes. AVITERA® SE provides significant economic benefits and improved environmental footprint: reducing water and energy consumption by over 50% and cutting CO2 emissions by up to 50% during the dyeing process.
In addition, all lead pigments and chromium have been removed from the Pantone Fashion & Home paper range to ensure compliance with environmental laws.
