  • Hispano Tex launches new fabric for printing

    Lienzo, a natural printbase

    Along with all the trends we are publishing for Spring/Summer 2018 collection now in September, we have developed a new fine natural fabric for printing called Lienzo, which means “artistic canvas” in Spanish.

    Lienzo is a plain woven canvas style fabric with 80% BCI cotton (Better Cotton Initiative) and 20% of linen/cotton combined yarn, a 100% natural organic and biodegradable print base with a soft touch and fall, totally breathable, with 160 grams produced in our standard width of 280cm.

    We will be using soon Lienzo in many collection prints from now on, first one is Series Poetic, which trend we published just last month (check this series)

    While most producers of the world produce flat-woven linen/cotton fabrics consumed mainly in plain colors, most of worldwide printers are still going with the traditional cotton/polyester blends (commonly known as “lonetas” in the cheap market) and only a few decide to provide a natural cotton canvas.

    Yet, Hispano Tex innovates by bringing to the market a unique canvas fabric made of natural yarns only, both cotton and linen: so you get the benefits of the cotton, but the looks of the linen.

  • The DETOX iniciative

    A campaign by Greenpeace

    Hispano Tex is proud to inform that we have recently subscribed to the worldwide DETOX initiative as part of our corporate responsibility program.

    The Detox commitment aims for the progressive reduction of pollution emissions within all industrial production processes, and has been joined by brands like ALDI, LIDL in regards to home textiles, amongst other enterprises. This initiative is supported by a coalitions of NGOs organizations which form the Green Choice Alliance, to promote a green global supply chain so that manufacturing enterprises can exercise their purchasing power to make green choices, following CGA consumer initiatives. GreenPeace is one of the major NGOs partner of the Detox program, as well as IPE (Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs) in China. The latter one has enables an online platform with a World Pollution Map as well as a DDBB of all suppliers and manufacturers willing to participate in the Detox initiative.

    Hispano Tex is strongly committed to sustainability so when we learnt about it, we immediately contacted the Green Choice Alliance and they sent us auditors to supervise measurements of chemicals and production processes for the last couple of months. Now you can find us listed on the IPE platform in this link: http://wwwold.ipe.org.cn/en/pollution/discharge_detox.aspx, using the search option. You will be able to check all the types of emissions we produce and discover our production processes are already mostly within the DETOX standards. Yet we are aiming to implement further improvements to make our production centers even more environmentally friendly than they already are before 2020, which is the directive given by GreenPeace in these regards.

    In the fashion scope, worldwide brands have joined into the Detox Catwalk aiming to promote free-toxic fashion. In Home textiles the initiative is still general, yet Green Peace parameters are the same for all brands, producers and manufacturers.
