The Pontex approach is respectful of the environment and therefore oriented towards the use of sustainable raw materials and natural dyes and products. 
We have been working on fabrics for clothing between sustainability and creation: we have decided to further increase the use of sustainable raw materials such as organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, linen, tencel, proposing color palettes with natural colors obtained from cabbage, beet, red cabbage, walnut husk, turmeric, golden onion.
Shades inspired by earth and vegetable colors, looking at nature observed under the microscope, delicate colors that combine performance and naturalness.


SUSTAINABLE RAW MATERIALS

One hundred percent vegetable and natural fibers, linens associated with cottons, linen blends and cottons, for shirts and casual fabrics but also for sports fabrics.
Hemp, organic cottons, linens and artificial fibers such as tencel to make lightweight and resistant clothing fabrics, to consume less material ensuring longer lasting performance. 

Organic cotton

Soft and natural, organic cotton makes it possible to create anti-allergic clothing fabrics, which do not irritate and which give a pleasant sensation to the touch because they are softer and more breathable than traditional cotton.
Organic cotton is a more sustainable choice than traditional cotton, because it is produced without using pesticides or fertilizers and also reducing water consumption. 


Hemp

Hemp is a natural textile fiber, which is extracted from the plant of the same name.With hemp it is possible to obtain ecological fabrics for clothing, because the plant from which it originates grows spontaneously and does not require pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers during cultivation. This means that the resulting tissue is healthy and does not cause irritation in contact with the skin.
Hemp is highly insulating, therefore it protects from the heat and allows us to create fabrics that are ideal for making spring and summer clothing.


Linen

Linen is the oldest fiber in the world, a sustainable fabric with a very low environmental footprint, like hemp, whose plant of origin does not require large quantities of water or chemicals. Furthermore, the linen fibers are very strong and shiny and produce fresh and absorbent fabrics, therefore ideal for the spring and summer season


Bamboo

Bamboo is an ecological artificial fiber of natural origin extracted from the homonymous plant; it is an ecological fabric, because the plant from which it is obtained grows spontaneously avoiding the waste of water resources. The bamboo fabric is breathable and suitable for contact with the skin, it is breathable, antibacterial and has a great moisture absorption capacity.
A garment made with bamboo fabric is soft on the skin, delicate and prevents redness and irritation.


Tencel

Tencel fiber has a natural structure, extracted from the cellulose of the eucalyptus trees whose cultivation is managed in a sustainable way.
Tencel allows you to make clothing fabrics that are smooth and soft on the skin, resistant and breathable because the eucalyptus wood from which it is made has the advantage of absorbing moisture in a natural way. Washing and drying do not require special attention and Tencel does not need to be ironed


NATURAL DYES

Sustainable raw materials, to create natural clothing fabrics to be worn in their naturalness or associated with colored and dense shades.
Beetroot cabbage, red cabbage, walnut husk, turmeric, golden onion, natural dyes through which to obtain pigmentations and chromatic shades that recall nature, to be moved by the chromatic richness that nature brings us.

Ever-green clothes for a sustainable and eco-friendly wardrobe

Against a pop and drop fashion and to reduce the ecological impact of textile waste, we can start with the consumption habits of fashion: Pontex prefers a style that purchases ever-green clothes, with sustainable fabrics for clothing, bio-based resins with natural dyes and recycled cottons   art. 01607/P13 RECYCLED COTTON - 32% Cotton 3% Spandex weight 325mt2, 470mtl height 141/144 A more sustainable and high-quality fashion is the goal of the “EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles”, to be implemented within 2030. The impact of textile products on environment is in fourth place in Europe after food, accommodation and transport. Therefore, EU wants to declare war to fast fashion, the low price “pop and drop” fashion, with rules that favour the use of recycled fibres, reduce that of micro-plastics, prohibit the destruction of unsold stock. If we want to reduce the ecological impact of textile waste and help to counteract climate change, we can start with the consumption habits of fashion preferring a style that purchases ever-green clothes. But what are ever-green clothes?  Ever-green clothes are long-lasting clothes, that remain beautiful over time and are always trendy. It is underlined also by Elle in its 10 rules to make fashion system circular, in which, in first place, we find “Producing long-lasting clothes”: Clothes realised with Pontex fabrics for clothing are clothes to grow fond of, with which you can establish an emotional connection, to be kept always with you in your wardrobe. Blazers, gabardines, trousers, shirts, recycled cottons, realised with sustainable raw materials like organic cotton with GOTS and BCI certifications, Supima cottons, bio-based resins. To be worn in their naturalness or combined with colourful and dense shades, with natural dyes. Pontex decided to bet on these sustainable fabrics, against fast fashion filling the oceans with plastic, and remain faithful to the vision of the company, in which the identity of unique fabrics, realised according to originality and craftmanship, is part of a historical tradition that is brought forth since 1972.  Recycled And Indigo Yarn-Dyed Cotton     Recycled and indigo yarn-dyed cotton with special shades to create clothes that are unique over time, with very different and never common aspects. With these one-hundred-percent sustainable fabrics we realise trousers that are versatile and always trendy but, most of all, attentive to the environment.  detail art. 01607/P13 RECYCLED COTTON detail art. 01607/P13 RECYCLED COTTON detail art. 01607/P13 RECYCLED COTTON Furthermore, recent dyeing techniques include a number of special treatments that allow to limit water dispersion and the use of chemical products. art. 01717/638 Allison Indigo - 100% Cotton - Height 144/147 cm - Weight 135 gr/m2 - 200gr/mtl  Bci Cotton And Gots Cotton: Organic And Sustainable The Pontex range of sustainable fabrics also includes: Organic and sustainable cotton with BCI certification, that guarantees the organic origin of the textile fibres and their traceability along their eco-friendly production chain.Organic and sustainable cotton with GOTS certification, the highest standard in the world for organic fibres; in addition to verifying compliance of the whole textile chain with the requirements of organic production, it also evaluates if requirements of environmental and social responsibility are met along the whole production chain.A pair of trousers, a blazer or a shirt realised with BCI or GOTS cotton are undoubtedly clothes essential to a sustainable wardrobe, real “timeless pieces” for a trend that remains from season to season.

Different examples of GOTS dyes: art 01189 Sweet Gots Organic resins with natural dyes Resin-treated fabrics for clothing, realised also with bio-based organic resins, for the production of clothes and dresses as well as blazers, gabardines and trousers, that combine comfort and efficiency, style and trend. For the resin-treated fabrics for clothing proposed by Pontex, the most used textile fibres are cotton, organic cotton and linen.The dye of these resins is completely natural, of plant origin, realised through eco-friendly processes: no toxicity, then, and no allergic reactions on your skin because no chemical products were used to dye these fabrics.  An example of resin-treated fabric for clothing from Pontex Fall Winter 22.23 Collection, obtained from organic resins and natural dyes: art. 01605/637 Molveno Organic Resin 100% Cotton + resin - Weight 265 gr/m2 - 390 gr/mtl  Natural dyes are considered eco-friendly since they are obtained from renewable resources; they are biodegradable and the remaining material left after extraction of the dye can be easily composted and used as fertilizer. From an aesthetic point of view, dyes with natural colours allow wonderful colourings, very different from those obtained from synthetic dyes. Supima Cotton Supima cotton, also known as “luxury cotton”, is a cotton with a long fibre (that can exceed 29 mm) and very resistant, as well as thin. It is one of the most refined and precious cottons in the world, recognised for its extraordinary softness and shininess, that makes it better after each washing, without losing its shape and resisting to tears and rips.Our Collection of fabrics for clothing also includes Supima Cotton to realize comfortable and elegant trousers in sportswear style: a must-have both in women’s and men’s wardrobe.  art. 6660/P05 Supima Trouser Supima art. 6660 Velvet 16 w stretch Supima – 98% cotton 2% lycra – height  140 / 143 cm – weight 260 gr m2, 370 mtl Trouser Supima art. 6660 Velvet 16 w stretch Supima – 98% cotton 2% lycra – height  140 / 143 cm – weight 260 gr m2, 370 mtl Customisation of each fabric on request The strengths, as always in the Pontex Collections, are the wide choice of high quality fabrics together with highly competitive prices All Pontex fabrics can be provided in organic cotton, certified GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), upon request.  DISCOVER PONTEX COLLECTIONS AND CONTACT US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ONE OF OUR ARTICLES navigate_next
