Algalife’s team is committed to rethinking what determines a good fabric. Just as our name implies, Algalife is extending the shelf life of algae to create bio-fibres and healthy dyes. Through our bio-based innovations, we provide scalable solutions, both in the creation of fibres and dyes in a 100% closed loop system made from algae.
We’re changing the way garments are made, from the inside out. Our solutions are not only good for our planet, but also for our skin. Algae are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and numerous minerals that provide nourishment for our bodies. We believe in the enduring strength of algae-based fabrics and are convinced that they can become a force for good for the future generations (and the environment).
Algaeing by Algalife

Committed to creating a brighter future without destroying or diminishing anything in the process, we invite you all to ALGAEING the future, together.
IndiDye® Natural Color Company provides an eco-friendly fibre-dyeing solution based entirely on natural dyes and auxiliaries. The dyeing technology combines high colour fastness with very low water consumption. IndiDye® is applicable to natural, cellulosic and synthetic fibres, and all our products are currently melange.
We manufacture our own dyes and dye fibre at our own facilities and provide melange yarns for knits woven through our manufacturing partners.
IndiDye® is certified following the Plant Dyes Standard, a rigorous certification process developed in cooperation with Control Union. The standard verifies all-natural content in our dyes and dyeing process. In addition, our dyes are GOTS approved and OekoTex 100 Class 1 certified.
100% natural alternative
IndiDye® Natural Color Company was founded with a vision to challenge the prevalence of harmful and wasteful conventional dyes with a natural, clean and good alternative. Since founding our company in 2010, we have conducted more than 85000 tests, resulting in 14 patents for natural dyes, auxiliaries and dyeing. Our pursuit of a natural alternative has culminated in IndiDye®, a dyeing solution that offers both brands and consumers the choice to replace conventional dyes with a 100% natural alternative.
Nano-Dye Technologies is a textile dyeing technology company, whose mission is to provide solutions to drastically reduce exhaust dye jet chemical pollution and solid waste. Our solutions also include reducing the amount of water and energy used in the process of exhaust jet dyeing cellulosic and cellulosic blend knits.
Our patented Nano-Dye process – a disruptive solution achieving our intention to create a ‘plug-and-play’ solution for the current reactive exhaust dye jets process, sensationally improving its sustainable footprint – currently now in bulk production and scaling.
Our Nano-Dye Process can change the reactive exhaust dyeing process so that it does not require salt (solid waste to ocean or landfill). Our process also eliminates up to 97% of the hydrolysed dyes from its effluent, reduces its water use and up to 75% energy use, significantly improving sustainability.
Preventing water polution
Commercial reactive exhaust dyeing is the most widely used method employed for dye knit cotton textiles. It is also a source of major water pollution, exacerbated by the salt, hydrolysed dyes, and other unnatural chemistry involved in the process.
Nano-Dye Technologies offers a drop in, one step solution, to ameliorate the dirty reactive exhaust jet dyeing process. By preventing excessive water pollution, reducing water usage and CO2 emissions, Nano-Dye Technologies successfully transform this into a sustainable process.
We aRe SpinDye® offers the most sustainable polyester yarns and fabrics in the fashion and apparel industry. Our easily accessible colouring process is certified and fully transparent, which allows us to deliver fabrics with enduring colour performance. The global textile industry is accountable for massive water pollution, with 24% of a garment’s climate impact stemming from the dyeing process. At We aRe SpinDye®, we abandon the harmful practice of water dyeing, and lead by example to inspire the textile world to choose a modern, method of dyeing that can curb water pollution.
With our method, the colour pigment is integrated into the material from the beginning, without the use of water, making it a sustainable process.
Sustainability as KPI’s
The Key Performance Indicators (KPI) are compared to industrial dyeing method standards, which are measured during the entire fabric production process. Our process yields the following: 75% less water consumption, 90% less chemical consumption, significantly improved energy consumption, and CO2 imprint reduction by 30%.
In addition, we use 100% GRS certified recycled polyester and our KPI’s are validated by a third party, following the ISO Standard 14040.
