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, 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.
