Tintex is this year’s recipient of the unique and prestigious annual award from ‘The Instituto de Apoio às Pequenas e Médias Empresas e à Inovação’ (IAPMEI). Tintex has been selected for its pioneering, naturally advanced global leadership and its responsible fabric making for a fashion system driven by investments, transparency and fully traceable innovation.

“Being able to drive material innovation, and to promote a new generation of sustainable values to contemporary fashion, active, sports and lingerie markets through responsible supply chains can be transformative for our future fashion systems, and Tintex is proud to be selected as part of the Make Fashion Circular initiative by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, helping to better activate these changes across the fashion industry for all to enjoy,” said Tintex in a media statement.

In a fast moving globalised market, it is required by all companies to be able to adapt quickly and deliver success using innovation, creativity, and responsibility. Tintex can network between technological centers, universities, and knowledge centers, as a strategic business and holistic imperative. And so sharing the Naturally Advanced strategy of Tintex as a driver for change, IAPMEI recognises the Tintex OPEN DAY as a demonstration of practical market potential, and has partnered with CENTI (Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart Materials the Institute for New Technologies) and CITEVE (an institution of national and international reference for the promotion of Innovation and Technological Development) as a way to guarantee this success.

“Tintex is pleased to open its doors as the naturally advanced centre of excellence in the latest IAPMEI OPEN DAY for textile leaders, protaganists, media and customers to experience, understand and enjoy the unique achievements Tintex offers to the contemporary Portuguese textiles industry,” added Tintex.

“We selected Tintex to underline the importance of taking advantage of digitisation and modernisation at different levels in the textile industry being stunned by their commitment, shedding light on our territory’s most advanced and responsible processes and skills,” said José Marques dos Santos, president of IAPMEI.
