Bio Based Textile Dye Company Transforming the Fashion World

Bio-based dyes help create honest, clean, healthy clothing. From seed to closet, they’re transforming the fashion industry and the world.

Stony Creek Colors is a bio-based textile dye company near Nashville, TN where the core focus is to not only  increase the profitability and the ecosystem health for tobacco farmers but to help them transition into indigo farming.

Their bio-based dyes help create honest, clean, healthy clothing. From seed to closet, they’re transforming the fashion industry and the world while empowering designers, brands, and mills with greater transparency and traceability

Engineer Sarah Bellos began developing Stony Creek Colors in 2012. Today, Stony Creek supplies
Cone Denim, a major US denim manufacturer in Greensboro, NC and their dyes are used to
wash popular styles for retailers like J. Crew.

Stony Creek harvests the crops using its own custom built equipment and the indigo is extracted and processed
by in-house engineers and chemists at their own facility. 


Stony Creek Colors is set to expand next year from nearly 150 to over 1,000 acres of indigo farmland.
