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

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. 

Furthermore, recent dyeing techniques include a number of special treatments that allow to limit water dispersion and the use of chemical products.

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.

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.

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.

Eco-friendly pieces of clothing with natural fabrics, dyes and finishing: our strategy to be more and more friendly to the earth  

Circular fashion wastes less resources and prefers those pieces of clothing that last over time, realised with fabrics based on renewable fibres and production wastes close to zero. Using natural and light fibres like linen and cotton, natural dyes and finishing like bio-based resins is the strategy for a sustainable and resilient future in fashion too. Natural vegetable fibres: the first step to an eco-friendly piece of clothing   For the season Spring Summer 2025, Pontex proposes a capsule of fabrics realised with natural vegetable fibres like Linen, Cotton and Tencel, for pieces of clothing that are 100% eco-friendly. in this picture: art. 02106/P05 Rowena Pxt, 100% Linen, width 145/148, weight 145m2  220mtl «So many clothes were never produced before. And clothes have never been worn so little.». — Circular Design for Fashion, Fondazione Ellen MacArthur Linen is one of the most appreciated fabrics for clothing for spring, thanks to its comfort and versatility. Stylists and creators prefer it for those pieces of clothing aiming at originality and artisanship, pieces with which to establish an emotional relationship, to grow fond of, to have them always in your wardrobe. Furthermore, Linen has a lot of positive characteristics: it is a breathable and thermoregulating fibre, it has got a shining look and is very suitable for dye and finishing. It is an ecologically responsible fibre because it is traceable and biodegradable.  Cotton is a natural textile fabric with vegetable origin: the most used in fashion industry. It is absolutely eco-friendly since it is 100% biodegradable, ecologic, recyclable. It is easy to dye and soft, very resistant but breathable and versatile at the same time, therefore, suitable for any season. Combining cotton and linen, we can produce thin, fresh and light fabrics. In this picture: art. 01618/P05 Michelle Pxt 100% Cotton, width147/150, weight 150m2 230 mtl Pontex capsule of cotton fabrics also includes recycled cottons with cold dyes that give different and unexpected looks, biologic and sustainable cotton with BCI certification and  GOTS certification. In this picture: Linen shirt, art. 02103/P05 100% Linen with cold dye for a fully natural effect.  Tencel fibre too is conquering more and more space in the sustainable fashion industry, since it is ecological and eco-friendly. It is particularly elastic, with a good resistance to wrinkles, it is soft and light and absorbs dye very well, thus acquiring really vivid colours and offering generous shades. When mixed with other fibres like Cotton and Linen, the performances of the fabric concerning resistance, comfort and sustainability increase even more. Second step: dyes with natural pigments and colours  The green strategy of Pontex for a sustainable and resilient future is focused on using natural and light fibres like Linen, Cotton and Tencel, as well as on the use of natural pigments in dyeing operations, using colours that are considered eco-friendly as obtained from renewable resources.Ethical, and aesthetical too: dyes with natural colours allow to obtain beautiful colours, very different from those obtained using synthetic colours.  In this picture: an example of fabric for clothing in linen and cotton from Pontex Spring Summer Collection 2025 Pontex, Art. 04002/R05 Jolly Pxt Sale Pepe Delave' 56% Linen 44% Cotton, Width 144/147, Weight 140m2 210mtl Third step: finishing with bio-based resin The third step to obtain a 100% eco-friendly piece of clothing is to use natural types of finishing, applying on natural fabrics, like linen and cotton, bio-based resin, for example, that have low impact on environment.  In this picture: samples of resin-treated fabrics by Pontex, with the application of completely natural bio-based resins.  art. 02103/R04 Grazia New Delavè 100% Linen, width 140/143, weight 145m2 220mtl This is the case of resins that have biomasses like corn and rapeseed as raw material, thus substituting those deriving from fossil sources like petroleum. These resins can be applied on any kind of fabric, also on feather-weight, light and impalpable technical fabrics.   If we want to be friends of earth, and if we want to fight for a responsible and sustainable future - in line with the goals of the Agenda 2030 – the first step is that of choosing unique pieces of clothing that last over time, ethical and aesthetical too, without sacrificing the comfort and elegance of a timeless style.  In these pictures jogger trousers from Pontex Collection realised with natural fibres and dyes: Cotton, Linen, Tencel.
