Tencel Prêt-à-porter 

Tencel is a fibre with a natural structure, it is eco-friendly and it softly and gently leans on skin: this is why it is «ready-to-wear»


Tencel sets a new standard of sustainability and natural comfort: it allows to realise fabrics for clothing that are soft and gentle on skin, with a very low impact on environment because it is a fibre with a natural structure. 
In fact, it is produced starting with eucalyptus trees, from which wood pulp is extracted: for this reason, it is the most ecologically compatible artificial cellulose fibre.   

Fabrics for clothing in Tencel:

  • They are durable, elastic, soft and light, therefore indicated for sensitive skin
  • They maintain their elasticity also after many washings
  • They do not require particular care and attention when washing or drying and they do not need to be ironed (but if you want to iron them it is enough to set iron at a very low temperature)
  • They are breathable, because the eucalyptus wood they are obtained from has the advantage of absorbing humidity in a natural way.

Which piece of clothing for what outfit?

We chose Tencel to realise clothes intended for a refined and functional outdoor. Like the shirt Gwen 100% Tencel, with a very warm and soft hand, and perfect wearability: to be worn under a soft sweater or an embracing coat, combined with trousers with essential lines. 

Code words, versatility and colour

Versatility is one of the strong points of Tencel that, thanks to the absorption capacity of the fibres it is made of, is able to show definitely intense colours and offer generous nuances.

This Gwen shirt, for example, is realised in azalea colour: a boost of good humour, proposed by some fashion designers in a total-look formula too. Combined with green or brown trousers, for example, it stands even more out in its finishings and shades, for a modern outfit that maintains its sense and significance despite the passing of time.

A new way to achieve sustainability, we could say, that is implemented through the choice of unique clothes with a long life.

Tencel, cotton and elastomer   

Tencel has got many virtues, as you have read above, and, if it is combined with other fibres like cotton and elastomer, it also obtains the one of being stretch: an effect that deserves particular attention in the realisation of trousers for men and women. Softness, durability and elasticity become fundamental characteristics when we choose trousers to be worn all day, that Pontex proposes in a wide range of colours:

Long life to Tencel 

Therefore, long life to Tencel if we want to embrace the path of sustainability choosing fibres with a low impact on environment.Wearing a piece of clothing realised with this fabric means making an eco-friendly choice, in line with the course set by the European Community concerning sustainable fabrics for clothing. With the purpose of reducing the impact of this field on environment, the Strategy of the European Union adopted on the last 30th March 2022 aims at passing to a circular and climate-neutral economy within 2030. Textile products sold in the European market shall be more durable, reusable, repairable and efficient, free from dangerous substances and produced respecting human and environment rights.

The document of the strategy states: “By 2030 textile products placed on the EU market are long-lived and recyclable, to a great extent made of recycled fibres, free of hazardous substances and produced in respect of social rights and the environment. Consumers benefit longer from high quality affordable textiles, fast fashion is out of fashion, and economically profitable re-use and repair services are widely available. In a competitive, resilient and innovative textiles sector, producers take responsibility for their products along the value chain, including when they become waste. The circular textiles ecosystem is thriving, driven by sufficient capacities for innovative fibre-to-fibre recycling, while the incineration and landfilling of textiles is reduced to the minimum”.

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.
