Artistic Milliners (AM), a Pakistani denim mill, has opened Artmill, a new facility in Karachi that will focus on generating “multidimensional” woven textiles and casualwear that is both adaptable and performance-driven.
According to Artmill, the new mill will benefit from AM’s operational knowledge, long-term investments in innovative technology, and a recent phase of strategic inquiry into consumer trends and “cutting-edge” innovations in woven textiles (including the application of machine learning and automation).
It will be the region’s first LEED platinum certified piece-dye mill, with a capacity of 25 million metres per year, according to the company.
The mill’s recipes will include a focus on sustainable water and energy sources, as well as chemical recycling procedures. The new business also indicated that it is prepared to deliver turnkey solutions for casualwear brands, retailers, and manufacturers, as well as pioneer unique offers for startups and luxury labels.
“Over the past several years, the expectation for comfort, performance, and beauty, all in a single item, has progressively increased,” said Omer Ahmed, CEO of both Artmill and AM. Artmill is ready to put horsepower behind the development of clothes that matches this moment.”
