Dyeing thread on demand

Let’s Learn

Coloreel is an innovative Swedish technology that allows you to colour thread on demand. Embroline is an attachment for industrial embroidery machines which is the first development using the new technology and which colours the thread as you stitch meaning you don’t need to keep changing your threads. The technology has the potential to revolutionise industrial embroidery manufacturing allowing no limitations on the number of colours used, as well increasing efficiency by minimising re-threading time and reducing the need to keep stocks of thread.
