The Art of Garment Dyeing explores the groundbreaking fabric colouring technique we now take for granted from Italian sportswear.

If you have ever purchased products from the likes of Stone Island or C.P. Company you will have no doubt heard of a technique called garment dyeing. First introduced to the industry by none other than Massimo Osti, the practice took another direction from the mass production of garments. The technique was unique in that each individual piece could be dyed on its own, using a variety of different fabrics from cotton, nylon, leather and synthetic materials. The end result was more colours to play with and a more unique finish to the fabric used. Garment Dyeing has revolutionised the clothing with brands like Stone Island now one of the biggest designer labels on the planet.

From the famous C.P. Mille Miglia jackets to Stone Island Raso Gommato, garment dyeing has certainly seen its contribution to some of the greatest pieces ever made. The latest display from C.P. Company explores the work of Giuliano Balboni, appointed by Osti to research the potential of the dyeing innovation.

C.P. Company have now introduced The Art of Garment Dyeing which will be run in collaboration with Le Fix Shop in Copenhagen. The exhibition will run exclusively from the Le Fix and starts from this coming Friday 11th August 2017 at 4pm. You can also check out the latest C.P. Company AW17 arrivals at cpcompany.com.
