Warm days have arrived and finally it is time to wear our favourite spring-summer clothes. In the spirit of sustainability and respect for environment, and to take care of our skin too, we can choose fabrics that are natural by their nature and biodegradable artificial fabrics, ideal to realise outfits that are trendy for every occasion at the same time.

We chose cotton, ramiè, linen, viscose and rayon for shirts, tank tops and tops, shirt dresses, trousers and shorts, tunics and soft and light dresses, playing with transparencies and overlays.


Natural fibres: linen, cotton, ramiè 

Linen, cotton and ramiè are natural fibres that guarantee the utmost freshness and breathability to the piece of clothing. 

Cotton

Cotton is a fibre with a natural origin, characterised by lightness. It is very resistant, hypoallergenic and breathable too, soft on skin and able to disperse body heat very well. It can be washed by hand both with laundry soap and other detergents.
Furthermore, cotton is ideal for dyeing and printing. 
Here are two 100% cotton proposals for the spring-summer 2024: 

Linen

It is a cellulose natural fibre: hypoallergenic and biodegradable. Eco-friendly, traceable, aesthetically pleasing, linen is a great ally against humidity, because it neither attracts nor holds dust: therefore, it is perfect for spring-summer clothes. Its fibre is characterised by a high resistance therefore, a piece of clothing in linen, if well maintained, will keep its characteristics unchanged for many years.

Ramiè 

It is a precious fibre that is very similar to silk, so much that it deserves the epithet “vegetal silk”. It has got medium resistance and tenacity, it becomes a little less creased than linen and guarantees a better resistance to wrinkles. Soft, shiny, elastic and uniform, it resists well to torsion and perfectly maintains its shape also after many washings at a high temperature.

Artificial textile fibres: viscose

Viscose (or rayon) is an artificial textile fabric, produced starting from a fibre that is already present in nature, cellulose, that is obtained from wood. Therefore, it is not to be confused with synthetic fibres, because these, on the contrary, are produced starting from materials that do not exist in nature (like polyester), and are the result of chemical syntheses made by man.
Soft and shiny, it is a breathable fibre that absorbs humidity and gives a touch of freshness on skin: for this reason, it is very pleasant to wear. It resists very well to wear and absorbs well the colours that look very shiny. It can be dyed at any step of production.
Viscose is often combined with other fabrics like linen and rayon, to provide the pieces of clothing with further peculiar characteristics.

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.

Discover Spring Summer 25 Collection Technical note: "structured texture" means both the set of operations to assemble the loom to prepare it for weaving, and the way in which the yarns of warp intersect those of weft. Therefore, a structured texture defines which kind of fabric will be obtained from a specific weaving. navigate_next
