Are textile dyes harmful to health? And is textile dyeing environmentally friendly?

Now and then, there are stories in the press about textiles containing harmful colourants that end up on the market. These are often cheap imported textiles.

simplicol only uses quality dyes that are checked on an ongoing basis. Fabrics dyed with simplicol are dermatologically safe.

From an environmental perspective, it is worth redyeing or refreshing textiles that are still in good condition. Instead of ending up in the shredder, clothes of the “wrong colour” can be worn again. This reduces the production of new materials and the associated environmental burden caused by the cleaning, bleaching, mercerising, and treatment of natural fibres. It therefore makes sense to dye, not to buy, for the sake of the environment.
