Tintex, a textiles company based in the Porto region, is this year’s recipient of the unique and prestigious annual recognition from The Instituto de Apoio às Pequenas e Médias Empresas e à Inovação (IAPMEI).

The company has been selected in recognition of its pioneering Naturally Advanced global leadership, and the company’s responsible fabric making for a fashion system that is driven by investments, transparency and fully traceable innovation.

“We selected Tintex to underline the importance of taking advantage of digitisation and modernisation at different levels in the textile industry being stunned by their commitment, shedding light on our territory’s most advanced and responsible processes and skills,” commented José Marques dos Santos, President of IAPMEI.

Tintex will host an open day at the Naturally Advanced centre of excellence on 17 April for textile leaders, protagonists, media and customers to experience and learn about the achievements Tintex offers to the contemporary Portuguese textiles industry.

“In a fast-moving globalised market, all companies must be able to adapt quickly and using innovation, creativity, and responsibility can help deliver successes. And here Tintex can network between technological centres, universities, and knowledge centres, as a strategic business and holistic imperative,” the company explains.

“And so sharing the Naturally Advanced strategy of Tintex as a driver for change, IAPMEI recognises this Tintex Open Day as a demonstration of practical market potential, and has partnered with CENTI (Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart Materials the Institute for New Technologies) and CITEVE (an institution of national and international reference for the promotion of Innovation and Technological Development) as a way to guarantee this success.”

“Being able to drive material innovation, and to promote a new generation of sustainable values to contemporary fashion, active, sports and lingerie markets through responsible supply chains can be transformative for our future fashion systems, and Tintex is proud to be selected as part of the Make Fashion Circular initiative by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, helping  to better activate these changes across the fashion industry for all to enjoy.”
