Welcome to dyeluxe
Dyeluxe is a colour research project sampling pigments from food by-products.
The main research field focus is on pigment extraction to create natural textile dyes in a sustainable manner. Through its circularity model, Grave-to-Cradle the aim is to reduce the circularity gaps within the food and fashion industry simultaneously through collaboration.

By-products of the food industry can come from the entire food supply chain. The research blog explores creating mainly textile dyes from sourcing different types of food by-products from various stages of the food chain. Have a glimpse into turmeric, avocado, pomegranate by-product dyes and many more to come!
