Tintex, the leading jersey manufacturer, will showcase a naturally advanced collection, a cutting-edge colouration technology, and a brand-new collaborative business model, at the Performance Days to be held in Munich from November 13-14 in booth c08 / hall c1. Performance Days is the functional fabric fair for sourcing in sports, work and corporate wear.

The new statement collection – 'WEME' – for A/W 20/21 goes beyond intellectual and spiritual individual needs to embrace a communal vision blurring ‘we’ and ‘me’, ‘conscious’ and unconscious’, responsible innovation and creativity. Developed around the concept sub-collections ID, Superego and Ego, the range comes in electric and active tones and combines smart ingredients and processes to drive innovation by harnessing the company’s unique dyeing and finishing expertise.

The new fabrics are made from a mix of new generation fibres that enhance free movement such as Refibra by Lenzing, Qnova by Fulgar and the unique GRS certified premium stretch Roica EF. The smartcel powered ID sub-collection is defined by striped structures that simulate flaws on initially smooth and perfected surfaces and provides soothing, anti-inflammatory effects thanks to the inclusion of zinc oxide.

The 'Ego' selection comes in rich purples, calm lilacs and feminine yellows and features natural fibres such as organic wool. The 'Superego' is available in unique styles and colours, achieved due to Colorzen and the Naturally Clean finishing. Together these enhance the natural beauty of cotton and cellulosics eliminating harsh treatments and optimising clean surfaces with vivid colours, and an exquisitely smooth hand feel. Transformed materials such as Ecotec by Marchi&Fildi take the lead saving up to 77.9 per cent in water compared to regular cottons.

Tintex’ cutting edge colour technology which received the Sustainable Solution award in the May 2019 edition of Techtextil will debut in Munich. Colorau was created with a Portuguese consortium constituted by premium realities and gives life to responsibly coloured fabrics with antimicrobial properties, using natural dyes extracted from different types of natural plants resources that do not use salt in the production.

Colorau uses only compounds of natural origin such as thyme, boldo, peppermint, chestnut and gambier in the production of functional and sustainable textiles in a variety of fibres such as cotton, lyocell and wool. An eco-efficient and low temperature surface treatment improves the affinity between the textile substrate and these natural compounds. The technology features a selection of 'performing' extracts for appropriate colour fastness to light and washing as well as colour durability and antimicrobial functionality.

Tintex has announced Co.Lab, a smart and collaborative business model and a totally new supply chain, which it has developed in coordination and with support of CLASS. The first sustainable and PETA-approved collections are 100 per cent traceable without compromising on quality and style. As co-leader and founding actor, Tintex has invited Becri, Confetil and Pedrosa & Rodrigues, threee leading companies, each producing specialised garment styles.

The new collections are: 'The Ecoperformer', ‘Legacy H20’ and ‘Sensing Smarts’.

'The Ecoperformer' by Tintex with Confetil collection meets the values of millennials and generation z consumers. Sustainable, multitasking, gender neutral and designed to fit contemporary urban lifestyle, the collection comprises modern soft sports garment with fully transparent innovation values. All selected fabrics are PETA-approved Vegan.

The ‘Legacy H20’ by Tintex with Becri is 100 per cent traceable and focuses on responsible water management.

The ‘Sensing Smarts’ by Tintex with Pedrosa & Rodrigues, is a next-to-skin soft and sensual range of materials enhancing well being and comfort while harnessing an innovative and responsible way of using chemical products for a greener and safest future.
