We act following the 17 goals of the Agenda 2030 for a sustainable development .
Our engagement is for the sustainability all the supply chain along, through the respect of workers and consumers health, the realization of creative and production processes, the enhancement of creative recycle and investment in innovation and research.

The textile certifications are the base in order to define a sustainable fashion.
For this purpose, we have chosen to put into our collections an increased number of fabrics able to grant the highest respect of the environment, keeping in the meantime the tradition and the history which since ever have been characterizing our Company.

Many of our fabrics have the following certifications :
GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), BCI (Best Cotton Initiative) and OCS (Organic Content Standard) for the organic textile, each of ones states the sustainable production starting from yarn until finished fabrics.

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)

The certification Global Organic Textile Standard states the utilization of natural fibers coming from biological agriculture, such as the biological cotton. This means that the product has been fully realized following the restrictions applied in respect of the environmental and social protection and at all levels of the production process: cultivation of the fiber, dyeing, finish, labeling.

BCI (Better Cotton Initiative)

Cotton is a natural fiber, the most natural we can utilize!
We do use cotton from responsible production applying the standards of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), the biggest no-profit organization which works in order to ensure a more sustainable future in the Cotton field.
Applying to these standards it means that more sustainable productions are generally put on under the points of view of environment, social, economical. By consequence, results are : utilize the water more efficiently, decrease the utilization of chemicals and negative effects of pesticides, improve life s workers conditions and the development of cotton cultivators.

OCS (Organic Content Standard)

Cotton is the most biological origin s fiber. Our biological cotton has got the OCS certification which ensures the biological origin  of the yarn fibers and their traceability along the whole supply chain of the eco sustainable production.

The resin-coated clothing fabrics can be of different materials and colors and allow you to create garments that combine comfort and efficiency, style and trend.  To wear in all seasons. Resin-coated fabrics: what they are and what characteristics they have Resinated fabrics are natural or synthetic fabrics subjected to the resin operation, through the deposition on the textile fibers of a resin that can be natural or acrylic.  They have versatile characteristics of great utility: despite the resin treatment, they still maintain lightness and texture. They are very strong and compact and can be combined very well with other fabrics. Antibacterial, anti-stain, anti-mold, anti-crease, resin-coated fabrics can also be ironed. Biological resins art. 01189 Sweet Resine Gots art. 01189 Sweet Resine Gots The novelty of the Pontex Research and Development team is sustainable: bio-based organic resins with a palette of natural colors, of vegetable origin and therefore made through eco-compatible processes, which do not use chemicals: no toxicity, therefore, and absence of allergic reactions on the skin. Pontex also uses resins with natural dyes to make jackets, gabardines and trousers. Timeless resins, resins without season Cotton, organic cotton, linen and nylon are the most used textile fibers in the Pontex Collection to make resin-coated clothing fabrics. Each fabric is rigorously checked and subjected to quality control tests: calendering treatments, water repellent, spray test. In the photo: art.  05203/543 Hathor Resin-coated fabrics do not have seasonality: they allow you to create clothing to be worn in spring-summer, as well as in autumn-winter: what varies according to the request are the weight and compositions of the fabric used.      art. 2103462 Grazia Lino resinated It is possible to resin the nylon to make a winter duvet, or to resin the linen / cotton to create a duster that is water resistant and water repellant.   from left to right: art.  02007 / K48 Versilia resin coated, art.  01611 / K48 resin-coated Indian canvas, art.05037 / K48 Roger resin-coated We also play with resins to change the optical effect of the fabric, for example through coatings that allow you to obtain different color nuances between the right and the reverse.   The resins change the hand of the fabric and can give different aspects, also increasing its resistance: this is the case of the “Barbour” hand, for example, which gives body and vigor to the fabric for clothing and a vintage look to the garment. To produce clothes that last over time: an objective that must absolutely be pursued to make the fashion system circulate: a fashion that creates durable and desirable products, that is clothes that remain beautiful over time and are always "in fashion", is circular. art. 01121/580 Pepper Wind waterproof Jacket art. 01121/540 Pepper Wind waterproof Jacket Maximum customization   In the Pontex proposal, every customer request can be customized: thanks to the collaboration with Italian companies specialized in resin coating, we are able to supply any type of resin-coated fabric for clothing.   Contact us for more information on our products: info@pontexspa.it
