November 14, 2017
Women's Wear Daily - The Fiber and Biopolymer Research Institute, a division of Texas
Tech University’s department of plant and soil science, today revealed a new foam-dyeing
process for denim at a special event. Heritage denim brands Wrangler and Lee, as well
as the Wal-Mart Foundation, are early investors in the technology and were in attendance
at the event hosted by Indigo Mill Designs to show support for the initiative.
The lead researcher at Texas Tech, Dean Ethridge, said they are "grateful for the
support of Wrangler and Lee, whose investment and technical contribution greatly advanced
the process of commercialization with Indigo Mill Designs." Ethridge added, "Credit
also goes to the U.S. Manufacturing Innovation Fund for supporting the research project
that made development of this technology possible."
