Color is the first thing consumers see when looking at fabrics. It’s difficult to imagine the monotony of undyed fabrics in our world today. 

The process of dyeing textiles introduces hazardous chemicals into the environment while also being energy-intensive. Water is used to wash dyed and printed textiles. Dyeing usually takes several gallons of water to one pound of fabric.

Kingwhale set out to address the environmental impact of dyeing. The result is LOW IMPACT TECHNOLOGY (L.I.T.®) - a proprietary technology that modifies the molecular structure of yarn to more readily accept dyestuffs. With L.I.T.®, exclusively from Kingwhale, it is possible to dye fabrics at lower temperatures while shortening the dyeing process.

The L.I.T.® technology results in less waste, fewer resources and lower energy. 
- Reduces dyestuffs 15%
- Uses 22% less electricity for heating and cooling
- Takes 50% less thermal energy to create steam
- Consumes 60% less of the water for dye presentation and waste-water management

L.I.T.® reflects the Kingwhale commitment to be a sustainable contributor to the textile industry for a better future for all.
