ADVANCEMENT THROUGH NATURE
WE ARE TEXTILE SUPPLIERS
PYRATES is an R&D company and textile supplier: we work with the resources our planet has to offer, innovating on the aesthetic properties, functionality and sustainability of natural knit textiles.
We develop and supply our quality driven PYRATEX® fabrics to other brands through collaborations.
PYRATEX® are high-end, knit fabrics which are made in Europe from either vegetal, upcycled or biodegradable fibers. The vegetal fibers all originate from different plants, which give the fabrics their unique body-caring properties, tested and certified by European textile institutes.
The active components in PYRATEX® fabrics are not injected or added; they are a naturally occurring in the plant we make the fabric from. Therefore, they have no expiration date, nor do they wash away.
All of our PYRATEX® are knitted in Europe, ensuring our capacity to have full control and traceability of our production chain and techniques. This also reduces the distance, and therefore CO2 emissions, between each step.
In 2019, we received the European Union’s Horizon2020 grant, confirming our position as an innovative European textile company.
How our PYRATEX® fabrics are created
We source and
analyse the fiber
Our R&D team is constantly researching new, functional fibers. They analyze their properties, and potential performance.
We blend the yarn
We select the most suitable fiber to blend with the new innovative fiber we want to work with, based on its quality and performance.
We test the yarn
Once the yarn is spun, we work
with independent European textile laboratories to test it in order to evaluate its strength, permeability
We design our PYRATEX® fabric
Based on the needs of the textile market, as well as our expertise in innovation.
We knit and finish our fabric
The fabric is knitted in circular knitting machines
in our Italian, Spanish or Portuguese mills.
It is then dyed and finished without using any harmful chemicals, all following several European Certifications.
We test our fabric
At independent European textile laboratories and institutes in order to confirm it adheres to our high standards. This ensures that the fabric does not loose any of its natural properties during its production process.
