Tencel Prêt-à-porter 

Tencel is a fibre with a natural structure, it is eco-friendly and it softly and gently leans on skin: this is why it is «ready-to-wear»

Tencel

Tencel sets a new standard of sustainability and natural comfort: it allows to realise fabrics for clothing that are soft and gentle on skin, with a very low impact on environment because it is a fibre with a natural structure. 
In fact, it is produced starting with eucalyptus trees, from which wood pulp is extracted: for this reason, it is the most ecologically compatible artificial cellulose fibre.   


Fabrics for clothing in Tencel:

  • They are durable, elastic, soft and light, therefore indicated for sensitive skin
  • They maintain their elasticity also after many washings
  • They do not require particular care and attention when washing or drying and they do not need to be ironed (but if you want to iron them it is enough to set iron at a very low temperature)
  • They are breathable, because the eucalyptus wood they are obtained from has the advantage of absorbing humidity in a natural way.

Which piece of clothing for what outfit?

We chose Tencel to realise clothes intended for a refined and functional outdoor. Like the shirt Gwen 100% Tencel, with a very warm and soft hand, and perfect wearability: to be worn under a soft sweater or an embracing coat, combined with trousers with essential lines. 


Code words, versatility and colour

Versatility is one of the strong points of Tencel that, thanks to the absorption capacity of the fibres it is made of, is able to show definitely intense colours and offer generous nuances.

This Gwen shirt, for example, is realised in azalea colour: a boost of good humour, proposed by some fashion designers in a total-look formula too. Combined with green or brown trousers, for example, it stands even more out in its finishings and shades, for a modern outfit that maintains its sense and significance despite the passing of time.

A new way to achieve sustainability, we could say, that is implemented through the choice of unique clothes with a long life.


Tencel, cotton and elastomer   

Tencel has got many virtues, as you have read above, and, if it is combined with other fibres like cotton and elastomer, it also obtains the one of being stretch: an effect that deserves particular attention in the realisation of trousers for men and women. Softness, durability and elasticity become fundamental characteristics when we choose trousers to be worn all day, that Pontex proposes in a wide range of colours:

Long life to Tencel 

Therefore, long life to Tencel if we want to embrace the path of sustainability choosing fibres with a low impact on environment.Wearing a piece of clothing realised with this fabric means making an eco-friendly choice, in line with the course set by the European Community concerning sustainable fabrics for clothing. With the purpose of reducing the impact of this field on environment, the Strategy of the European Union adopted on the last 30th March 2022 aims at passing to a circular and climate-neutral economy within 2030. Textile products sold in the European market shall be more durable, reusable, repairable and efficient, free from dangerous substances and produced respecting human and environment rights.

The document of the strategy states: “By 2030 textile products placed on the EU market are long-lived and recyclable, to a great extent made of recycled fibres, free of hazardous substances and produced in respect of social rights and the environment. Consumers benefit longer from high quality affordable textiles, fast fashion is out of fashion, and economically profitable re-use and repair services are widely available. In a competitive, resilient and innovative textiles sector, producers take responsibility for their products along the value chain, including when they become waste. The circular textiles ecosystem is thriving, driven by sufficient capacities for innovative fibre-to-fibre recycling, while the incineration and landfilling of textiles is reduced to the minimum”.

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.
