    Dyeworks Sustainability

    Humphries Weaving continues to make improvements in all aspects of quality and sustainability in its manufacturing processes. One of the areas that has taken much of our focus has been in the dying area. The majority of the yarns dyed and woven at Humphries Weaving are natural fibres. Silk, cottons and wools are the yarns most often utilized and being 100% biodegradable, are ultimately some of the most sustainable fibres to dye and weave.
