TINTEX will be showcasing new fabric technologies at the Performance Days show in Munich, this week. According to a news release from the company, its aim with these new technologies is to enhance the natural beauty of cotton and cellulosics while eliminating harsh treatments and optimizing clean surfaces with vivid colors, stated the release.
The fabrics being shown are made from a mix of new-generation fibers designed to enhance free movement, such as Refribra by Lenzing, Q-NOVA by Fulgar and Global Recycle Standard certified stretch ROICA EF. The smartcel-powered ID sub-collection is defined by striped structures that simulate flaws on initially smooth surfaces. The collection is reported to provide anti-inflammatory effects from the inclusion of zinc oxide. The EGO collection features natural fibers such as organic wool and the Superego collection includes Naturally Clean finishing.
TINTEX color technology COLORAU, which received the Sustainable Solution award in the May 2019 Techtextil, will also debut in Munich. COLORAU uses compounds from thyme, boldo, peppermint, chestnut and gambier for color fastness and antimicrobial functions in the production of a variety of textiles.
The company also announced CO.LAB. The collaboration is reported to produce sustainable, PETA-approved collections that are 100 percent traceable. TINTEX invited Becri, Confetil, and Pedrosa & Rodrigues to form the collaborative supply effort.
TINTEX supplies the contemporary fashion, sport and lingerie markets with dyed and finished jersey fabrics.
