Tintex, a leader in textile and research innovation from Portugal, is set to display water saving solutions at Performance Days expo, in hall C1, booth B18. The leading show for innovations, trends, and sourcing of fabrics and accessories in functional sportswear, athleisure, safety, durability, will be held on November 28 and 29, 2018, in Munich, Germany.

Two of Tintex’s fabrics have made it into the Performance Forum Jury’s Pick Category that represents fabrics which are a valuable contribution to this season Performance Days focus topic ‘Water – Our Responsibility’, the company said in a press release.

The company will launch Naturally Clean - an exceptional smart finishing process that is uniquely responsible. Naturally Clean enhances the natural beauty of cotton, takes a cost effective modern approach to eliminate aggressive treatments and optimises clean surfaces, vivid colours, providing an exquisitely smooth hand-feel.

Tintex’s Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection on display will include vibrant tones, refreshing turquoise and electric green, light, and warm copper with chocolate browns that connect the natural and spiritual in an extra-sensorial universe. These will be infused with a stunning palette of nostalgic and multicultural colours - warm yellow with darkened reds, dynamic purple with urban greys - that express globalisation and human connection

Key smart ingredients of the collection include a new generation of cotton: GOTS certified organic cotton, Supima cotton, and Ecotec by Marchi & Fildi the smart cotton that saves up to 77.9 per cent water consumption and introduces the concept of a circular economy.

The collection also includes SeaCell and Smartcel, produced using the Lyocell process in a closed loop with no chemicals released as waste. Bemberg by Asahi Kasei is a new generation GRS certified material, made from cotton linters, with a biodegradability certification by Innovhub. Roica EF has a percentage of pre-consumer recycled content that is more than 50 per cent, and thanks to this it has been GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified. Roica V550 is a premium stretch innovative yarn boasting the cradle to cradle certified gold level for material health product and ingredients as it was evaluated throughout the supply chain for lower impacts on human and environmental health.

Of special interest this season is the two Tintex’s fabrics that made it into the Performance Forum Jury’s Pick Category. A smart rib developed to reduce the water usage as most as possible, from cultivation of raw materials until fabric finishing. A blend of Tencel Modal, cellulosic & biodegradable material treated with no hazardous chemicals, pesticides nor fertilizers, and European hemp, a fast-growing plant that requires very little water and no herbicides, pesticides, synthetic fertilisers or GMO seeds. Both fibres are biodegradable.

The second selected article is a 100 per cent Merino Wool jersey made unique thanks to Colorau by Tintex, a patented natural dyeing process technique that uses vegetable herbs and extracts. A great amount of water was saved by avoiding subsequent washing steps. (GK)
