Portuguese knitted fabrics producer Tintex introduced a new fabric range from the naturally advanced cotton at Premiere Vision Paris on February 13. This new range will offer an advanced smart choice of three different premium and responsible advanced cotton solutions such as Ecotec by Marchi & Fildi, GOTS certified organic cotton and Supima.
These new fabrics maintain and upgrade the transparent, hi-tech and sustainable organics. They represent better, smarter eco-materials with new levels of performance and hi-tech smarts. These fabrics incorporate specialist dyeing and finishing techniques, coatings and applications that use the latest research, equipment and processes to deliver it.
“This launch is confirming once more the commitment of Tintex to its naturally advanced position meaning advancing beautiful, organic and natural materials to the next level combined with unique, hybrid nature-tech smarts. It adds value and creativity, with the dedicated investments that serve and secure our customer’s demands both now and in the seasons to come," said CEO Mario Jorge Silva.
The naturally advanced cotton collection by Tintex: Ecotec by Marchi & Fildi, is a range of full-colour yarns, smarter cotton made from pre-consumer clippings that save up to 77.9 per cent water during manufacturing. GOTS Organic Cotton is the most important standard for sustainable production of garments and natural fiber textile products from organic farming such as organic cotton. Tintex will offer 100 per cent Supima precious fabrics and blends with tencel at the fashion event.
In addition to this, Tintex has also partnered with Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) a not-for-profit organisation that exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. Through BCI and its partners, farmers receive training on how to use water efficiently, care for the health of the soil and natural habitats, reduce use of the most harmful chemicals and apply decent work principles.
