Hundreds of the world’s leading dyes houses choose the natific Color Accreditation Program (CAP) to cut out the common process of lab dip submission and first of production approval. natific randomly selects a mill within the CAP program to feature with a short interview. We also take this opportunity to welcome new and returning clients.


The team at Dongguan Shatin Lake Side Textile Printing & Dyeing
in China became a member of the CAP program in 2012. The mill just pass the re-CAP, a follow up CAP three years after the initial visit.

We asked the management of Shatin Lake Side Textile Printing & Dyeing some questions to find out more about the mill and their progress.

"Not just another
certification"

natific: What retailers/brands are you working with within the program?
Shatin Lake Side: Target, Under Armour, and Land’s End.

natific: How did you first hear about the CAP program and what were your initial thoughts?
Shatin Lake Side: My initial thought about the CAP program was to get the certification for the retailers.

natific: What are your thoughts today about the program?
Shatin Lake Side: Today I think it is good program to combine relevant information from different factories and share with each other, to enhances continuous improvements and create better consistent and accuracy in the production process.

natific: What do you see as the biggest advantages being a CAP member?
Shatin Lake Side: The biggest advantages I see is that we can search and find production information in the network, it helps us to save signification cost and time and to better achieve the retailer’s target. If some color cannot be achieved, we contact natific to solve the issue.

natific: What is your advice to non-CAP mills that are considering joining the program?
Shatin Lake Side: If other mill wants to upgrade their production process but don’t know how, I would recommend them to join the CAP. They will get guidance to work with continuous improvement at different department.

natific: As a CAP member, can you tell us about any specific achievements in your mill?
Shatin Lake Side: Firstly, I can tell you that our lab-to-bulk successful rate is now around 90%.

Regarding more specific changes in our processes, we used to put the dye in the bucket first, add water, then stirring. Now we have tried to change to put water into the bucket first, then the dye, add water and stirring. We are waiting for the dye kitchen feedback.

Natific has also recommended a new reduction clearing method, we will try this next time we have a color fastness performance issues.

natific: Thank you for sharing insights to the natific community members!
Shatin Lake Side: Thank you too!

DID YOU KNOW? – ABOUT THE CAP PROGRAM

The CAP program was developed as a collaborative project between natific and retailers and has evolved to be the most comprehensive color accreditation program globally. The program is designed to evaluate the maturity and capability of a mill, determining if a mill will be able to produce any given color to a specific tolerance. It is intended to assess, educate and help mills move towards best practice through production analysis and expert recommendations.

The ColorWarehouse is a system used within the CAP program. The system allows mills to analyze production data based on color, fabric and dyeing machine. ColorWarehouse provides mills, vendors and retailers/brands with insight into the mills daily production.
