From Coffee To Fabric

Globally, coffee production is estimated to be responsible for upwards of 23 million tons of waste per year. As long as you drink coffee, coffee grounds will naturally be produced, which provides a wide range of raw material production for the production of coffee yarn.

The process is to use super-critical extraction technology-supercritical carbon dioxide extraction technology, to extract the coffee grounds into coffee yarn masterbatch, and then make coffee yarn into clothes.To reuse these waste and turn them into value can be very promising. This will be another great green resource.

What are the benefits of these ‘ coffee fabric’?

1. Odor Control

The coffee fabric absorbs strongly odors that your body produces throughout the day.

Comparing to Cotton:

Cotton Odor Control : 1
Coffee Fabric: 3

2. Fast Drying

The coffee fabric continually moves moisture away
the outer surface of the fabric, hence it also making the drying process fast.

The performance of coffee ground fabric in compared to cotton:
Cotton: 1
Coffee Fabric: 1.88

3. UV Protection

The coffee ground creates a long-lasting natural shield for fiber, reflecting UV rays and hence provide a protection from UV.

4. Ice Cool Touch

The coffee ground is one alternative green fiber. It is with the capability to cool down the temperature of our skin about 1 to 2 degree compared to common fabrics.

One disadvantage of natural dyeing is that it’s hard to measure the quantity needed to get the exact same color,” “For each batch of dye, there may be a difference in the type of beans or maybe the coffee was brewed twice. Creating an exact match is a challenge, especially for manufacturers.”

Concerns over color consistency may fade as consumer attitudes change. If there is greater demand for clothing made with natural dyes, consumers may accept the uniqueness natural dyes create.
