Research and Development
Existing natural dyes suffer from the lack of an environmentally friendly fixative that is able to match the performance of a synthetic one. They also cause a subsequent environmental issue through their use of land to grow the raw materials. SAGES is completing R&D into the development of an environmentally fixative in collaboration with leading researchers in colour chemistry. SAGES also tackles the issue of land use by using an innovative process in which pigment can be extracted from food waste.
Our dyes have been recognised by a number of institutions and we are lucky to have worked in collaboration with:
