Fall Winter Collection 2022-2023 To conceive the Fall Winter 22/23 Collection we have started from the concept of “durability” meant as resistance over time, as solidity, efficiency, as a contrast to everything that is ephemeral, against the idea of waste. What we offer is a sportswear style, which favors functionality, comfort and durability over time without detracting from the aesthetic value. The leitmotiv, the recurring motif of this Collection is the search for the best raw materials, for a sustainability that we find in every phase of fabric processing: not only in the search for the raw material, therefore, which must necessarily be eco-sustainable, but also in the subsequent stages of production.Natural GOTS dyes and organic resins for an eco-sustainable product from A to Z. BCI raw materials and raw materials with recycled cotton. We have chosen to focus on authentic and resistant fabrics, which go beyond the "simple to wear" dimension in balance between comfort and Fashion. DURABILITY means at resistance over time We want to give our customers a wide choice of the highest quality fabrics, authentic, versatile fabrics. In this particular historical moment where uncertainty prevails, Pontex provides the solidity of an all-round service by supplying the raw material, even sustainable, and all related processes guaranteed by the best Italian subcontractors in the warehouse.
