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 PYRATEX® are luxury knit fabrics made from either vegetal, upcycled or biodegradable fibres, of European origin in their majority. The vegetal fibres originate each from a different plant, which gives the fabric its unique body-caring properties, all tested and certified by European textile institutes · 

The active components of PYRATEX® fabrics are not injected nor added, they are embedded in the fabric and thus have no expiration date, nor do they wash away ·

Our production


All our PYRATEX® are knit in Europe, thus increasing our capacity to control and have full traceability of our production chain and techniques, as well as reducing the distance, and therefore CO2 emissions, between each step ·

In 2019, received the European Union’s Horizon2020 grant, thus confirming our position as an innovative European textile company · 

Our responsibility approach


We try to be as eco-friendly as possible, through our production process, the way we work and our premium, durable fabrics ·

We aim to use sustainable fibers in our formulas, which consume less water, energy or CO2 during their production process, as well as not applying chemical treatments to our PYRATEX® fabrics, finishing them with steam in order to protect the fibers and maintain their properties ·

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 industries by monitoring and evaluating the various phases of an article’s entire production chain. Our factory also owns the Traceability and Fashion certification, issued by Unioncamere, which grants the client the opportunity to check, per each item bought form us, the origin of the yarn and of the creation of the fabric ·
