Company Welfare: organisational flexibility with new working hours

At a time of economic turmoil like the current one, in which the need to save energy is very clear too, Pontex has chosen the path of organisational flexibility, with a view to the work life balance

At a time of economic turmoil like the current one, in which companies also have the necessity to optimise energy costs, Pontex has chosen the path of organisational flexibility: company offices and registered office, starting from Monday the 21st November 2022, are open from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with continued schedule.

A decision that was inspired by the will of the company top management, with a view to the work life balance, that is now one of the main factors sought-after by Italian workers when they choose a company (according to what emerges from the results of the Randstad Employer Brand Research 2022), and to increase the wellness of its employees and collaborators, with particular attention to the needs of female workers for whom conciliation between working and family life represents a priority aspect.

And last but not the least, in a year like this, this choice is supported by the need to optimise energy costs and to follow the road of sustainability turning “the lights on” only when it is absolutely necessary.

“In such a complex historical moment, also worsen by an increased cost of energy and by the Russia/Ukraine crisis – Letizia Ferretti, CEO Pontex underlines -, we believe it is necessary to take actions to support our collaborators, in order to increase their wellness. For sure, time is an important benefit, maybe the most precious resource that we have at our disposal in this period and pandemics has taught it to all of us. In times of energy crisis, we also want to work on the culture of economy and costs optimisation: rescheduling the working hours can be a solution.”

Code words: company wellness and energy saving for our company that this year has chosen to celebrate a great milestone, its first 50 years, together with its employees.

Fabrics with Structured Texture: when crossing is fashion

Piquet, dobby, broken twill effects to “play” with fabric and give identity to each piece of clothing, using the best yarns The fabrics for clothing with structured texture are obtained thanks to a particular weaving, where the final effect is determined by the way in which the yarns of the warp (parallel to selvages) intersect those of the weft (perpendicular to selvages).Each type of structured texture gives life and structure to the fabric because, depending on the crossing of yarns made by the movements of the loom, unexpected, original and unique effects are created.     For the Collection Spring Summer 2025, Pontex has realised a capsule of structured-texture fabrics with high-quality raw materials: natural fabrics one-hundred per cent cotton and stretch cottons (cotton with elastomer) to grant comfort and utmost wearability, added to utmost resistance and durability, to pieces of clothing like, for example, trousers. Thanks to advanced weaving techniques, Pontex realises and proposes fabrics with structured texture with three-dimensional effects, piquet, dobby, broken twill effects, double cotton satin with slub effect. The particular crossing of warp and weft and the use of high-quality raw materials allow to obtain fabrics with unique and particular effects, with more or less sustained hands depending on the structured texture being more or less “open” with yarns tighter or less tight in the crossing. For the Spring Summer season, Pontex also “plays” with untied effects, thanks to the particular construction of the fabric art. 01618/P05 MICHELLE PXT 100% COTTON width 147/150 weight 150m2 230 mtl For the Spring Summer season, Pontex also “plays” with effects like knitting, that make the piece of clothing likewise a comfortable sweatshirt. art. 01516/P05  ELARA STRETCH PXT 98% COTTON 2%ELASTOMER width 143/146           weight 195m2  285mtl Each fabric of this Capsule is designed inside our Style Office, that works in strict collaboration with our Customers to create always new proposals, experiment new types of crossing and new techniques and thus offer exclusive products able to satisfy a more and more demanding international clientele.
