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 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.
