We want to contribute to the advancement of innovation and sustainability in the fashion industry. As pioneers of European textile innovation, our team has the experience in textile R&D, B2B, and B2C business allowing us to offer a 360º degree service to our clients. 

 

PYRATEX® is a registered brand of natural, property rich knit fabrics. The innovative properties of our fiber blends makes it very important for us that our clients properly communicate our brand guidelines. Moreover, that they follow all the parameters regarding the labelling and description of our PYRATEX® fabrics.

Our naturally innovative products can be co-created with each brand in order to adjust to their specific aesthetic, functionality or structural needs. This involves deep, stable collaborations which may involve textile R&D, all the way to production, as well as assisting each brands’ teams on how to successfully explain the innovative fabrics to their own clients.

OUR LATEST COLLABORATIONS

full of history, sometimes alternative, always feminine and feminist.

Fête Impériale is a creative studio founded by Laura Gauthier Petit in Paris in 2015.


The different disciplines in Fête Impériale refer to Laura’s aesthetics, to what she imagines of the world, to the way she sees it: a rich, colourful wardrobe, full of history, flowery, sometimes alternative, always very feminine, even feminist.

 

Environmental awareness and societal ethics have been essential values at Fête Impériale since its creation.


Through its materials, product quality and way of working, Fête Impériale focusses on being eco responsible. You will find our recycled polyamide fabric PYRATEX® active I in their “Riviera” collection: an understated yet responsibly stretchy catsuit befitting Laura’s vision.

OPENNESS, TOLERANCE AND CROSS-CULTURAL TOGETHERNESS

Kitsch Kiosk was born with the idea to combine slow fashion and graphic design. Social diversity, tolerance and a conscious approach to oneself and one's environment serve as an ethical compass for their work.

Kitsch Kiosk is inspired by the cheerful kiosk world. The kiosk represents a place of openness, tolerance and cross-cultural togetherness. This free, tolerant, colourful world serves as inspiration for their prints.

 

Because they stand for sustainability, they chose our skin caring PYRATEX® cosmetic II fabric for their thoughtfully designed t-shirts. 

DESIGNED FOR ITS FORM, FUNCTION AND IMPACT

PYRATEX® has joined forces with Skinswear to create 100% European, eco-friendly mesh fabrics which will replace traditional, polyester-based ones and become a sustainable second skin for women.
 

This collaboration has led to the creation of a premium-quality recycled polyamide mesh material.

 

It is PYRATEX® and Skinswear’s goal to work long term on replicating this silky and superiorly breathable structure with 100% natural fibers, as well as biodegradable alternatives which will replace elastane in bringing the body-embracing stretch that is so essential for underwear.
