The world’s first opulent luxury gold wool colored using gold particles
Designed for premium fashion and textile markets by The Victoria University of Wellington, this proprietary process combines ancient chemistry with modern science to create colors without the use of dyes. The process colors 100% wool using fine pure gold particles, combining the purest natural wool fiber with the richness of gold in a wide range of colors, including pink, red, purple, blue, and grey.
The delicate nanogold shades are generated by the phenomenon of “localized surface plasmon resonance” whereby the surface of very small particles of gold interact with light, resulting in a very intense coloration that depends primarily on the size and shape of the particles. These particles are then chemically bound to the wool fibers. Applications for Aulana® Gold Wool include luxury fabrics, apparel, and bespoke rugs.
