Linen and tencel, for a fresh and bright spring summer
The combination of these two fibers makes it possible to obtain clothing fabrics with a delicate and impalpable hand, shiny, fresh and highly breathable. To create ready-to-wear garments, in full comfort and wearability
In the spring summer season linen predominates, the noble fiber for excellence, which “mixed” with tencel ensures a refined and comfortable look at the same time with shirts, trousers and outerwear that enrich our wardrobe with something unique and durable.
Linen is the oldest textile fiber in the world, beautiful and precious, but above all ecological and natural, sustainable and with a very low environmental footprint.
The characteristics of linen
Linen is a textile fiber, a very tenacious fiber: it is practically inextensible and does not deteriorate with repeated washing, on the contrary, thanks to them it can acquire greater softness.
It is heat resistant and little bleaching, hypoallergenic and breathable.
Due to its freshness and resistance, linen is perfect for making spring and summer clothing. It is breathable and therefore is able to optimally absorb moisture, and is also able to filter UVA rays.

It is a textile fiber that is extracted from the cellulose of the eucalyptus plant. It has a natural origin, but since it is subsequently processed with chemicals, it is in effect a synthetic fiber.
The characteristics of tencel
This textile fiber is characterized by excellent resistance, even after numerous washes, good breathability and moisture absorption. It is very soft and light, smooth and shiny, particularly suitable for sensitive skin.
Sometimes tencel is compared to silk and satin, due to the sensation it leaves on the skin. In addition, it allows excellent breathability and is a natural temperature regulator, thus allowing you to feel cool in summer and warm in winter.

Linen + Tencel: Pontex proposal for SS23
Pontex Spring Summer 2023 Collection focuses on natural and light clothing fabrics with a fresh touch, but at the same time more functional and resistant, with high performance.
For Spring Summer 2023 we have combined tencel with a natural fiber such as linen: these two associated fibers make it possible to obtain fabrics for clothing with a delicate and impalpable hand, shiny, fresh and highly breathable. We go from very light weights for shirts to heavier weights for trousers and outerwear.
Pontex offers clothing fabrics ideal for making ready-to-wear garments, comfortable to wear and functional, unique garments that accompany us over time and that can never be missing in our wardrobe. With soft and sometimes intense colors thanks to the absorption capacity of the fibers with which they are made.
Garments that are also ideal for people with sensitive skin, as we have already specified the hypoallergenicity of linen and tencel.
