Jeanologia, the Spanish specialist and innovator of sustainable technologies for garment finishing, has conducted a ‘masterclass’ on laser design for denim finishing in Blue Lab in Amsterdam Jean School. The company’s objective behind the masterclass was to promote decontamination, automation, and efficiency in the denim industry.
The two-day workshop addressed creative possibilities offered by the laser design and how to design finishes using the company’s eMark software. Through new Jeanologia Light Sensitive Fabric Test, students also availed the opportunity of checking the importance of choosing the right fabric. It analyses how denim fabric reacts to new sustainable processes, especially the laser, in order to achieve desired washings and looks.
Furthermore, the workshop also focused on G2 ozone technology which facilitates a drastic reduction of water, chemicals, and energy in the denim finishing process.
Luis Górriz, Brainbox of Jeanologia said, “Students have been particularly interested in the wide range of laser design and have learned to use tools like Light PP, Light Scraper or Light Ripper. Trainings like this are vital because Amsterdam is the epicentre of training future designers towards a sustainable and efficient model of denim production and now, they already know that replacing the dangerous chemical spreading of potassium permanganate and sandpaper is possible.”
The Blue Lab, the Jean School testing laboratory, employs technology developed by Jeanologia Laser and Ozone, and offers training and workshops on technological innovation to students, manufacturers, brands, and designers.
