Materials we use


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.



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.

TECNOSTRETCH: Insulation with high tech look.
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. 
The incredibly light fabrics with a range starting at 125 g/m² for „superlight“ and extending to approximately 250 g/m² are especially important for the market. 
The Tecnostretch family includes additional special features like the ceramic coatings that can be applied flat or as a pattern, and achieve high test values of 4-5 (top value = 5) for resistance to snagging and pilling. Prints are also possible - with either digital or pigment print options available.
