Soorty, a Pakistan's large vertically integrated denim company, is launching Cascara, a new water-saving process for denim. 





The new process uses only green chemicals in compliance with REACH, Oeko-Tex, ZDHC and Blue Sign requirements, but it also eliminates the need for pre- and post-washers in dyeing, does not require any caustic soda pre-treatment and reacts well to dry finishes.




By using this treatment, the company can save an average of 130,000 liters of water per day while it releases cleaner wastewater.

Cascara, whose name means “skin” or “peel” in Spanish, includes a set of simplified processes that minimize dependency on natural and limited resources, it lowers the impact of production, and keeps effluents clean. 






This new method not only reduces the amount of water used but also the load on effluent treatment while providing true denim aesthetics as it can be used to achieve authentically worn looks without any heavy treatments, along with achieving bright and dark look effect jeans.
