Tintex Textiles, R&D for responsible fabrics

For over 20 years, Tintex Textiles has been researching and developing innovative fabrics for the fashion industry. A leader in dyeing and finishing techniques, the company has also pioneered responsible jerseys. Its mission is to develop revolutionary textiles answering the call for transparency and responsibility in emerging markets.

Thanks to the creation of its Department of Sustainability, Tintex Textiles has set up strict processes throughout its supply chain, from sourcing raw materials to production techniques, to provide its clients with natural-based products, dyed and finished according to the most responsible processes there are, all fully traceable.

The result:

– textiles combining natural products and new technologies, such as Naturally Advanced Cotton, Supima and GOTS certified cotton; TENCEL™ Lyocell and TENCEL™ Modal, made from wood pulp; and SeaCell and SmartCell fibres, developed from algae and zinc oxide.

– finishing techniques offering innovative alternatives to traditional processes, such as Naturally Clean, which eliminates aggressive treatments and limits the use of chemicals, for Oeko Tex certified products; and B.CORK™ Coating, a natural coating made from pre-industrial cork from Sedacor, a certified manufacturer.

Tintex Textiles has committed to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Make Fashion Circular initiative, and offers ISO 9001, ISO 14001, Step, GOTS, OCS, GRS, Oeko-Tex 100 (Class 1) and BCI certifications.
