Blue & Pastel
Normandy (Villers sur mer)
"Blue & Pastel, The Blue Dream" proposes a European innovation through industrial-scale production of natural blue pigment from the dyer's pastel, a plant with high added value. The raw materials from this plant offer many outlets. The main one concerns the fashion industry. Pastel is a natural pigment that offers the possibility to dye textiles in an environmentally friendly way. It will allow the textile industry to return to a virtuous circle.
