A fabric made of polyester filament obtained from PET bottles
Jun '08
Ecology, sophistication, recycling, creativity, luxury, research, are the ingredients that go into the fabrics produced by Horizonte Textil, a weaving mill from the State of Minas Gerais.

The latest novelties introduced in the market is the Lona PET woven with recycled cotton yarns and polyester filament obtained from PET bottles.

Comfort qualifies Guitar Spat manufactured with cotton and Lycra, with 18 to 20 percent stretch, in vintage and sanded versions, specially indicated for jeans wear.

Another interesting product is branded Sandoa Bock with prints that are enhanced after washing, particularly soft due to a reduced finishing process.

Luxury is illustrated by Mondrian, a 100% cotton fabrication with gold stripes resembling geometric embroidery, a winner in the women's sportswear segment and in complements.
