Kiian, a manufacturer of digital inks with facilities in the U.S., China and Italy, announces that its Digistar HI-PRO sublimation transfer ink has achieved Eco Passport certification.
That certification will enable the ink to be used in the production of sustainable textiles and those required to achieve STANDARD 100 by Oeko-Tex.
Eco Passport a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers demonstrate that their products can be used in sustainable textile production.
