Sustainable raw materials and natural dyes: the next Spring Summer 2023 Pontex Collection is on the way
The goal? Reduce the environmental impact as indicated by the goal 12 of the 2030 Agenda “Responsible consumption and production”
The Pontex approach is respectful of the environment and therefore oriented towards the use of sustainable raw materials and natural dyes and products.
We have been working on fabrics for clothing between sustainability and creation: we have decided to further increase the use of sustainable raw materials such as organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, linen, tencel, proposing color palettes with natural colors obtained from cabbage, beet, red cabbage, walnut husk, turmeric, golden onion.
Shades inspired by earth and vegetable colors, looking at nature observed under the microscope, delicate colors that combine performance and naturalness.
SUSTAINABLE RAW MATERIALS
One hundred percent vegetable and natural fibers, linens associated with cottons, linen blends and cottons, for shirts and casual fabrics but also for sports fabrics.
Hemp, organic cottons, linens and artificial fibers such as tencel to make lightweight and resistant clothing fabrics, to consume less material ensuring longer lasting performance.
Soft and natural, organic cotton makes it possible to create anti-allergic clothing fabrics, which do not irritate and which give a pleasant sensation to the touch because they are softer and more breathable than traditional cotton.
Organic cotton is a more sustainable choice than traditional cotton, because it is produced without using pesticides or fertilizers and also reducing water consumption.
Hemp is a natural textile fiber, which is extracted from the plant of the same name.With hemp it is possible to obtain ecological fabrics for clothing, because the plant from which it originates grows spontaneously and does not require pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers during cultivation. This means that the resulting tissue is healthy and does not cause irritation in contact with the skin.
Hemp is highly insulating, therefore it protects from the heat and allows us to create fabrics that are ideal for making spring and summer clothing.
Linen is the oldest fiber in the world, a sustainable fabric with a very low environmental footprint, like hemp, whose plant of origin does not require large quantities of water or chemicals. Furthermore, the linen fibers are very strong and shiny and produce fresh and absorbent fabrics, therefore ideal for the spring and summer season.
Bamboo is an ecological artificial fiber of natural origin extracted from the homonymous plant; it is an ecological fabric, because the plant from which it is obtained grows spontaneously avoiding the waste of water resources. The bamboo fabric is breathable and suitable for contact with the skin, it is breathable, antibacterial and has a great moisture absorption capacity.
A garment made with bamboo fabric is soft on the skin, delicate and prevents redness and irritation.
Tencel fiber has a natural structure, extracted from the cellulose of the eucalyptus trees whose cultivation is managed in a sustainable way.
Tencel allows you to make clothing fabrics that are smooth and soft on the skin, resistant and breathable because the eucalyptus wood from which it is made has the advantage of absorbing moisture in a natural way. Washing and drying do not require special attention and Tencel does not need to be ironed.
Sustainable raw materials, to create natural clothing fabrics to be worn in their naturalness or associated with colored and dense shades.
Beetroot cabbage, red cabbage, walnut husk, turmeric, golden onion, natural dyes through which to obtain pigmentations and chromatic shades that recall nature, to be moved by the chromatic richness that nature brings us.
