“A discovery in science is not accomplished in any logical way; it only takes on logical form afterward in the course of exposition. A discovery even the very smallest is always an insight to a solution that comes from outside as unexpectedly as someone had whispered it in your ear.”
E.dye stems from the textile industry’s impactful dyeing and finishing processes, which uses surfactants, salts, heavy metals, enzymes, oxidizing, and reducing agents expelled into rivers and waterways. Under this premise, E. dye was created by researcher, bioinnovator and sustainable fashion designer Carolina Obregón and professor Giovanna Danies, biologist and microbiologist with a PhD in Plant Pathology from Cornell University with microbiologists Diego Hernández and Paula Siauchó in Bogotá, Colombia. Obtained by modifying bacteria creating a wide range of colors present in nature. E.dye does not use harmful chemicals, making it an outstanding, unique, eco-friendly, biodegradable textile pigment.
