Christmas in solidarity: this year too, Pontex is with Piccoli Grandi Cuori, the association supporting pediatric heart surgery 

To our company collaborators a Christmas greeting card with a donation that supports children with heart disease

This year, once again, we decided to open the doors of Christmas at Piccoli Grandi Cuori (Little Big Hearts), the association that has helped for 25 years those people with congenital heart disease and their families, from diagnosis to therapy. In particular, we focused on supporting one of the projects of this association, the guesthouse  Polo dei Cuori (Pole of Hearts) in which the families of those children with heart disease (born with malformations of the heart) – under treatment at the Department of Paediatric  and Childhood Cardiology and Heart Surgery of the Policlinico (Hospital) di Sant’Orsola IRCCS in Bologna – can stay during the period of hospitalization that often coincides with long term care or heart transplant.

Very often, the parents of these children come from far away, from the South of Italy and sometimes also from Countries outside Europe, like in the case of Bereket who is 12 years old and arrived from Ethiopia with his mother. Bereket was born with a congenital heart disease and was accommodated in the house of the association on the 7th December; he will stay there until he returns to his Country of origin: here, the volunteers of the association are providing to him and his family everything they need for their stay, supported and followed by the staff of psychologists and social workers of Piccoli Grandi Cuori.

«Every child has the right to be cured, accommodated and wrapped in a safe hug: we have supported this association for a long time – Letizia Ferretti, Pontex CEO, explains – because we know in a direct way their strong charity action and we are sure that, like in the case of Bereket, they do their best to offer the utmost assistance and cure to these ill children and their families.”

All the collaborators and customers of our company have received a personalised greeting letter created in partnership with Piccoli Grandi Cuori, to support the reception project of the house.

VELVET FOREVER

Viscose and elastomer velvets, tactile fabrics customisable in their colour and aspect too   The activity of Pontex Research & Development has created viscose velvets and elastomer velvets, completely customisable in every aspect   Velvet is a must-have element in all the collections of fabrics for clothing by Pontex: it is due do its exceptional wearability and to its aspect that is elegant and casual at the same time, depending on the effect that we want to trigger and communicate. In fact, velvet expresses itself through its two different versions: the smooth, elegant and refined one, and the corduroy, more casual and vintage. The contrasts between shiny and matt, the irregular and crushed effects proposed in the Pontex Collection make it a living, soft and fluid fabric, to be explored through enveloping clothes like blazers, corduroy shirts and  high-quality, contemporary and sophisticated trousers. Velvet is unique and charismatic, due to its soft and fluffy texture: touching it, you immediately feel the sensation of its body in your hands and the unique way it reflects light and absorbs the colour. Sumptuous and regal thanks to the deepness of its vivid colour that changes depending on light, velvet has been able over the time to adapt itself to a more daily use too, thanks to the different processing techniques that characterise it with different aspects: from corduroy to froissé (creased aspect), from velveton (Moleskine) to jacquard (that has its design woven into the weft) Quality and utmost customisation  The R&S team of Pontex constantly designs new types of velvet for clothing, that undergo continuous and thorough quality tests. All the velvets for clothing by Pontex are top quality, authentic, versatile fabrics, customisable in their aspect and colour depending on the Customer’s needs. In order to obtain greater durability, elasticity and wearability, the range of velvets by Pontex includes viscose velvets and elastomer velvets too.
