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 made in Europe from either vegetal, upcycled or biodegradable fibers. The vegetal fibers all originate from different plants, which give the fabric its 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, and thus have no expiration date, nor do they wash away. 

Our production


All our PYRATEX® are knitted in Europe, increasing our capacity to have control and full traceability of our production chain and techniques, as well as reducing 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.
