Dry Indigo

Tejidos Royo, a company founded in 1903, has created a vertical business model that encompasses everything from spinning, indigo dyeing, and weaving to dyeing and special finishes. They are deeply committed to 360-degree sustainability and innovation across all organizational levels: economic, social, labor, and environmental—these have become their key pillars.

They implement cutting-edge sustainable techniques in the industrial process, making them pioneers in the denim sector.

In this vein, after more than 10 years of research and development, in collaboration with Gastón Systems Inc. and Indigo Mill Designs (IMD), they have successfully transformed the conventional Indigo dyeing process. By doing so, they have eliminated the essential raw material in that process: water. Dry Indigo® introduces a new dyeing system using foam. Thanks to this innovation, they use zero water in the dyeing process, completely eliminate wastewater discharge, and reduce energy usage by 65% and chemical consumption by 89%.

This represents a significant advancement in reducing environmental impact, especially considering that manufacturing a pair of jeans can consume around 7,000 to 10,000 liters of water in total. This includes wáter used for cotton cultivation, spinning, dyeing, and denim washing.
