Extrait de tanin de châtaignier

GREEN‘ING  did conclude a commercial agreement with the Company KINGTREE  for the sale of their Chestnut Extract from Occitania in our applications for textile, leather and cosmetics for instance.
These two companies are located in the area of the Parc naturel régional du Haut-Languedoc.
The Chestnut Extract from Occitania is manufactured by KINGTREE in the South of France from local resources (regrowth of chestnut trees) and under a virtuous and sustainable approach. The plant tannins (elagic type) are extracted by using the water from wood and from the recycling of extraction condensates, so in closed production without any use of external water, nor waste water production. A VALUABLE CO-VALORIZATION since the wood after extraction is then used for the production of agromaterials for construction.

We did receive the 2019 harvest of the beautiful natural indigo from Indigofera suffruticosa. Manufactured in Central America from fair and sustainable production.
The year 2019 was favourable and allowed us to purchase a little more of this indigo but this quality increases the demand. Do not loose time to place your order!

You can find this indigo on our webstore HERE.

Natural Colours & Natural Textiles in Occitania. Inheritage and source of inspiration for design.

GREEN‘ING will attend the symposium organised on September 18th, 2019 in Montpellier.

The history of colors in Occitania, the built heritage and the documents preserved in the departmental archives of Hérault are of first order in the international history of natural colors. The production and use of natural colors have had great economic importance in the South of France, in particular in our territories, and these elements constitute a good basis for the revival of these sectors and the development of bioeconomies.

This event will be an opportunity to create a link between in history, current productions and uses, development potentials, and to bring together passionate regional players.

On this occasion, Patrick Brenac will give a conference entitled : “From dye plants to colored textiles – manufacture and use of natural colors“. An update on plants, techniques and current sectors.

We will be glad to meet you and share this time of color.
