Cold Pigment Dyeing

Cold pigment dyeing is a textile dyeing technique that involves using pigments suspended in water to color fabrics. Unlike traditional dyeing methods that require heat to facilitate dye absorption, cold pigment dyeing relies on mechanical and chemical processes to bond the pigment particles to the fabric fibers without the need for elevated temperatures. This method is particularly suitable for natural fibers like cotton, as well as synthetic fibers that don't readily absorb traditional dyes.

Cold pigment dyeing offers a creative and versatile approach to textile coloring. It allows for detailed designs, patterns, and artwork to be applied to fabrics without the need for heat. Additionally, pigment dyeing can result in unique effects, such as the layering of colors and the creation of textured appearances.


    1. Material should be sent in fresh polybags.
    2. Material should undergo proper checking for cuts, damages, and stains before dyeing, as we inspect goods randomly.
    3. In CPD, small batches are used for dyeing, leading to significant shade variation in production.
    4. Only R.F.D fabric should be used; white fabric can result in patchiness.
    5. Use low gum density stickers; avoid them during stitching if possible.
    6. Garments will exhibit a high-low color effect from top to bottom.
    7. Rejection percentage in cold pigment dye will be 10%.
    8. Pre-wash the material before processing.
    9. Send material as per the lots made during blanket dyeing to reduce shade variation.
    10. We recommend a pre-production meeting to ensure awareness of running style callouts.
    11. Production will commence only after the approval of the 1st bulk lot.
