ADVANCEMENT THROUGH NATURE
We work with the resources our planet has to offer, innovating on the aesthetic, functional properties & sustainability of natural, knit textiles with our PYRATEX®: elevated, European-made knit fabrics created with innovative fibers which make the final fabrics naturally property-rich.
PYRATES is an R&D company, and textile supplier: we develop and supply our eco-responsible & quality driven PYRATEX® to other brands through collaborations.
Our responsibility approach
We try to be as eco-friendly as possible, and are always looking for new ways to improve, not only through our production process, but also in our products and the way we work.
It is essential for us that our factory in Italy, where we produce our PYRATEX®, owns the Tessile e Salute certificate, which deals with eco-toxicology in the Textile and Fashion sectors by monitoring and evaluating the various phases of the entire production chain that makes an article.
Our PYRATEX® are REACH certified, meaning they comply with the EU REACH regulation, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.
We try to use sustainable fibers in our formulas: natural, organic, biodegradable or upcycled fibres which consume less
water, energy or CO2 during their production process. We focus on developing fully traceable, durable fabrics, which, due to their quality, will last in one’s wardrobe for years.
Our work towards the UN's sustainable development goals:
Goal 5: Gender equality
By contributing to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision making.
Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
By improving water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials, as well as increasing recycling and safe reuse within our fabric production process (ensured by our factory owning the Tessile e Salute, and REACH certifications).
Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production
By contributing to the increase of sustainable consumption and production patterns with our high-quality, fully traceable PYRATEX® production process.
