Merino is a natural textile material with excellent properties. Merino wool perfectly retains heat even in the greatest frosts, it is perfectly breathable, but at the same time it did not require washing after each use. In addition, it has an excellent thermoregulatory function - it heats and cools exactly according to the current needs of the human body. The structure of the wave can bind air to itself. It creates a thin layer of air between the skin and the first layer, thus keeping the body warm. Merino wool naturally absorbs and evaporates moisture outwards. That is, even in summer and it is pleasant in it. In addition, merino wool contains lanolin, which has permanent antibacterial properties, thus preventing the formation of odors even when worn for a long time.
It is a natural, recyclable, renewable material that has a long service life and is easy to maintain. Thanks to its unique properties, merino is not designed specifically for specific conditions or activities. On the contrary, it is an absolutely perfect partner for year-round wear.
Nanotex works with more than 100 leading brands in the retail industry ranging from apparel to home goods. They offer the technology to produce fabrics that are water, odor, stain and wrinkle resistant, all while maintaining air permeability.
DWR stands for Durable Water Repellent. It is a special surface treatment of the fabric, which makes it hydrophobic and water repellent. Materials with this treatment are characterized by long-term water resistance. Water simply flows down the surface in the form of small drops.
The inner layer of the Tecnostretch "For Earth" clothing is made of specially treated polyester, an ecological material from Perpetual. It has developed a breakthrough technology that transforms used plastics into high-quality and durable fibers. The outer layer of our jumpers is made of ecological material ECONYL. Nylon made only from recycled fishing nets and other plastic garbage from the ocean. This solution is highly ecological and the material provides surprisingly much better functional properties. The products are characterized by high elasticity and maximum thermal insulation.
Just like a duck’s plumage, ecorepel® imitates this natural, water-repelling protection and ensures that textiles stay dry and clean. Ecorepel® is based on long paraffin chains that wrap themselves in a spiral around the individual fibers. This reduces the surface tension so that water droplets and even aqueous dirt with a much higher surface tension simply run off. Breathability is not affected, and the feel remains pleasantly soft.
CORDURA® fabric provides rugged durable performance for a variety of end uses, including packs, luggage, footwear and performance apparel. Products made with CORDURA® fabrics feature enhanced tear and abrasion resistance, and long -lasting durability. CORDURA® fabric is constructed with qualifying yarns which are woven in accordance with INVISTA's approved fabric standards for the CORDURA® brand.
TOP COCARBER® FIBER
Cocarber® premium viscose fiber with carbonized coffee beans. It perfectly absorbs and neutralizes odors and has excellent antibacterial properties. It can reflect heat back to the body surface and provides UV protection. Cocarber® fiber is made from recycled coffee residues - the production of the fiber itself is environmentally friendly.
Bamboo fiber is a raw material obtained from the stems of bamboo. Fibers for the textile processing industry are known only since the late 20th century. On the European market the yarn came up in 2007. These fibers are viscose fibers produced from bamboo wood. The fibers have a more pleasant feel than cotton. Fibers are more resistant to bacteria growth, by 60% comparing to cotton fibres. This is due to the content of a substance called "KUN".
Products made out of bamboo fibers are very pleasant to use, ensure optimum heat balance of the body, dry naturally and provide long-lasting fresh feeling.
MATERIAL DRY FAST
Pontetorto developed the highly multi-functional Dryfast collection especially for the base layer and single layer. All expectations of today‘s sportsmen and women for functional first layers are met. Besides feeling great on the skin and providing rapid moisture transport, thanks to the high quality fibers the fabric also meets the highest demands at the look and provides special anti-snagging and pilling characteristics.
TECHNOLOGY PROLEN SILTEX
PROLEN Siltex is a special branded polypropylene yarn modified with biogenic silver ions. The antibacterial additive is totally free from harmful substances and environment friendly. Silver ions help to inhibit the growht of bacteria and mould, reduce unpleasant odours and keep the skin biologically balanced during any recreational sports activities.
MATERIAL MICRO SENSE
Microsense, the innovative micro fibre fabric by SITIP combining softness to performances: breathable, fast drying, easy care, soft touch, superior comfort, appealing look.
MATERIAL NILO MIX
NILO MIX perfectly combines comfort and technical performance. Its high breathability and quick drying is ideal for sportswear. Nilo mix guarantees maximum functionality, wear resistance and durability. It fits perfectly and offers extra comfort.
TENCEL® is the lyocell fiber from the house of Lenzing. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely ecofriendly, due to the closed loop system. Textiles of TENCEL® are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen. The fiber absorbs moisture completely and naturally and then releases it to the outside. Due to the smooth structure of the TENCEL® fiber, materials are particularly silky and gentle on the skin.
Bacteria do not stand a chance with TENCEL®. The perfect moisture management of this cellulosic fiber is responsible for the reduced bacteria growth.
Tecnowool offers fantastic natural color combinations that can only be achieved in wool. The internal polyester dries rapidly, while the wool on the outer layer absorbs the water vapor to let it slowly evaporate into the air. The combination of the Pile and carded wool offers a thermal comfort that no other product can reach. The carded wool used is mostly recycled and is not treated with chlorine. The polyester on the inside stabilizes the fabric so that it can be machine washed. Tecnowool second layer is available in a wide range of double jersey with different structures and designs, from jersey with a classic look, to ribbed, textured structures, piqué, stripes and beautiful multicolor jaquards. Ideal for sweaters to wear under windbreakers or also as an outer layer for the warmer days of winter.
High tech surfaces are the latest trend in sports apparel - even for fleece. The Tecnostretch line from Pontetorto perfectly satisfies the requirements for a clean look and high elasticity while delivering top insulation performance. The Tecnostretch Fleece family with pile on the reverse side is the fastest growing product category at Pontetorto. An addition of spandex gives the fabric its stretch and special elasticity. All the while, the insulating properties of Pontetorto fleece remain, because the plush inners (sheared and napped or unbrushed with visible loops) trap a large volume of warming air inside.
Production requires skill and craftsmanship, the items should be just as resistant to snagging and pilling (pulled threads and balling) as all the other fleece qualities from Pontetorto. Many years of development and experience has enabled Pontetorto to achieve the ideal combination of fiber density and knitting technique to produce incomparably light, soft, elastic, and yet still durable fabrics.
Softshell is an ideal material for light anoraks or pants. Wind and water proof while staying highly permeable. This material is soft, warm, light and elastic - perfectly suitable for comfortable wearing.
Pontetorto stands out for the use of extremely fine polyester yarns in the production of Micro and Supermicro fabrics suitable for the first and second layers. The fibers used can reach a fineness below 0,5 den. in the case of Supermicro and after the finishing procedures the fabric is compact, uniform in volume but extremely light. Numerous hollow air spaces create an insulation effect with high thermal efficiency, for this reason the fabric is always warm when in contact with the skin. Comfort and lightness together with considerable thermal properties guarantee a technical product ideal for different sport activities but also suitable for everyday life style clothing.
NO WIND MEMBRANE
The membrane by the Italian company Pontetorto is perfectly windproof and breathable. No Wind® products are therefore suitable for all outdoor activities even in extreme conditions.
