The Bacterial Dye project showcases how bacteria can be used to dye textiles using a more sustainable method, resulting in rich, bright colours that can fully match the synthetic colours we are familiar with today. The technique was developed at the laboratories of the the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and subsequently in collaboration with the Danish company Gabriel Textile. The proposed method needs little water and does not rely on toxic chemicals, thus reducing impact on the environment. At the same time it can be upscaled for industrial production.
