Uno articles are said to offer for the contemporary active life that refers to unity as a result of the revolutionary generation in a society that embraces uniqueness and differentiation. Smart ingredients take the lead, enhanced by the Tintex unique dyeing and finishing expertise.

New levels of performance

Starting from the “Uno is…embrace yourself” concept for new levels of wellbeing performance, a unique range of natural fibres is blended with technical qualities, such as the transformed polyamide Q-Nova by Fulgar with moisture control, SeaCell that embodies the unique properties of seaweed and Roica CF (Clean Fit), an odour neutralising premium stretch yarn by Asahi Kasei.

And continuing with idea that “Uno is…starting a revolution”, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton fabrics feature Ecotec by Marchi&Fildi yarns saving up to 77.9% in water consumption in comparison to conventional cotton, and Roica EF, GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified responsible stretch yarn.

Last but not least, “Uno is…living the dream” concept stands for unique style and colour performances that are achieved thanks to Bemberg by Asahi Kasei, a new generation GRS Certified, high-tech natural material made from cotton linters. Bemberg boasts a biodegradability certification by Innovhub and Roica Colour Perfect, a premium stretch ingredient that delivers deep and flawless colours.

“Tintex faced Performance Days staying true to its naturally Advanced DNA indeed presenting a unique initiative aimed at making the cotton dyeing process far more efficient and sustainable, measurably reducing water use, toxic chemicals and salt,” the company reports.

“A special collection able to offer a naturally compatible value, where we are not just reducing water use by as much as 90%, but also that up to 95% of toxic chemicals can be eliminated.
