In addition to the ever-growing technologies that have inspired many creatives to incorporate at least some elements of high-tech to the production of their garments, Nike has recently revealed a dyeing innovation that is completely water-free called ColorDry. The environmentally friendly method of using no water or harmful chemicals that are used in traditional fabric dyeing was created by Taiwanese manufacturer Far Eastern New Century Corp (FENC). This sustainable innovation demonstrates the extremely environmentally friendly technology is coupled with uncompromising fabric coloring.

Today, approximately 100 to 150 liters of water is used to process only one kilogram of textiles. This novel innovation hits two birds with one stone in this extremely sustainable method of creating dyed fabrics that rids the use of harmful chemicals, bi-products and water to help reduce global energy consumption.
