The dyes used are synthetic to ensure stability and compatibility with historic fabrics and have been internationally approved after exhaustive in research. The manual dyeing of materials favours exhaustive control of all the processes involved in achieving the different tones and their nuances.

The Dyeing Room offers different professionals in the textile sector the opportunity to create and register new colours personally and confidentially. Our team of professionals guide and assist the client to achieve the most suitable colour ranges for their project.


Colour assessment

The database of all the colours created in the Dyeing room, which has been prepared and extended for many years, is today improved thanks to the addition of a spectrophotometer to the working dynamic. This technological device is used for capturing and measuring colour objectively, according to the universal CIE L*a*b* system which allows for colour to be assessed in textile restoration processes.
