Early stage investors, including VF corporation brands Wrangler, Lee as well as the Walmart Foundation who were on hand for the launch event, hosted by the developer Indigo Mill Designs (IMD).

A traditional water-based dye tank set-up can be up to 300 yards long. However, the new foam dyeing system for the same amount of fabric is only 30 feet long.
