Pigmento produces a 100% natural dye from agricultural and alimentary discards.
The idea of Pigmento is born out of the passion for the nature and environmental sustainability of the company’s team.
The starting point of the business idea is the processing of waste arising from the cultivationof certain vegetable products for food use.
The production process consists of the isolation from the leaves or the model
of the natural solid color dyes, through eco-compatible procedures.
The starting point of Pigmento starts with the concept of “circularity”
trying to use all available resources as efficiently as possible, making them run as long as possible in the economic cycle through reuse and recycling.
