Extraordinary eye catching designs were presented by the students of different Universities in SDC UK design competition. In Archroma Sustainability Day, the leading textile brands participated and exhibited their latest innovations and designs.

Mr. Mujtaba Rahim, CEO, Archroma Pakistan said, “With these conferences, we are bringing together  textile students, academia and the industry on one platform. And we also hope that the pace is going to increase in futurel.”

He appreciated the efforts of SDC for encouraging bright Pakistani students of textile chemistry through the competition on “Colors of Nature”. Color is an inseparable part of our daily life. Studies say that it plays an important role in emotions, productivity and communication in learning. It also influences creativity. This is the reason why Archroma collaborated internationally with SDC to base its design and color competition on the unique Color Atlas.  Color Atlas is a new system for designers developed by Archroma making color management easy and time-saving. It is specially greared to the needs of designers, brands, retailers and manufacturers and enhancing the created possibilities to the industry. The natural colors of nature are all reflected in Color Atlas.” He mentioned the fast change that fashion industry witnessed in the recent years bringing about a fundamental transformation in the way textile industry operates.  With the inclusion and availability of social media, keeping up with the demands of end users has become a challenge in view of the stringent compliance requirements on sustainability. 

He mentioned that for Archroma sustainability is not just a word or a business proposition. It is a way of reflecting on everything that they do. Archroma is committed to change the entire value chain to be economically and environmentally sustainable through innovative solutions. Archroma is passionately enhancing the peoples’ lives respecting our planet.

Aniline free indigo, he mentioned, is produced at our Sustainable Effluent Treatment Plant @ Zero Liquid discharge which means that not a single drop of water goes out from the production cycle and wasted. This facility has received Water Stewardship Award in France which is a matter of great pride for Archroma and for Pakistan.

He paid glowing tributes to the Pakistani brands who have earned a good name for themselves in the global markets.
