 HIGH-END, INNOVATIVE & SUSTAINABLE KNIT FABRICS

Run by Y-generation women, PYRATES smart fabrics develops and supplies its eco-responsible & quality driven PYRATEX® to other brands through collaborations: elevated knit fabrics made with innovative fibres which make the final fabrics naturally property-rich ·

 

THE PYRATEX® RANGE

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 Italy, thus increasing our capacity to control and have full traceability of our production chain and techniques, processing and managing each order from scratch, as well as reducing the distance, and therefore CO2 emissions, between each step ·

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

Our responsibility approach

 

The best way to be sustainable is by limiting one’s consumption, and moving towards high-quality, long-lasting products. We try to be as eco-friendly as possible, through our production process, the way we work and our premium, durable fabrics ·

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 ·

 

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 · 

We offer our clients the possibility of dying their PYRATEX® with natural dyes: an incomparable, sustainably derived color palette from natural sources, many from agricultural and food waste products, and offering only the most robust dyes which perform on natural fibers with aplomb ·
