Tintex ditches conventional cotton

Tintex has announced that it has completely switched from using conventional cotton and the launch of a new range. Naturally Advanced Cotton by Tintex has a choice of four responsible cotton solutions, the company says. These include the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), Ecotec by Marchi and Fildi, GOTS certified organic cotton, and Supima.

BCI cotton aims to reduce the environmental impact of cotton production, improve the livelihoods and economic development in cotton producing areas, and commit to increase the flow of Better Cotton throughout the supply chain.

Ecotec yarn saves 77.9 per cent of water during the manufacturing process, according to Tintex, and is made from 50 per cent recycled polyester.

Recently, Tintex has taken on German brand Jan’n June, which has garments printed with QR codes showing customers information about the fabrics used and sourcing.

Overall, the company says its new collection uses up to 90 per cent sustainable materials, including up to 40 per cent contemporary cotton from BCI, Ecotec, GOTS and Supima.
