Printa textile savvy From the very beginning, we have been using materials in our production process - be it clothing, accessories or home textiles - that are of the highest quality and to the best of our current knowledge. We do not use petroleum-derived materials such as polyester and acrylic. We prefer natural, certified and, where possible, recycled materials. We've put together in one place what these textiles are and what makes them so great.

BIOPAMUT JERSEY

Organic cotton (or organic cotton) is a great eco-friendly material. It is grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers, which is better for our health and the environment. What we use is made in Lithuania, thanks to its natural color, it also avoids the painting process, so it is placed on the tailoring table as an even cleaner raw material.

What are the benefits?

- hypoallergenic
- breathable
- antibacterial
- extremely soft
- GMO free
- grown exclusively with natural seeds

BIOPAMUT FRENCH TERRY

Fluffy French terry cloth, which can be made of wool, synthetic fiber or cotton, but we only use the latter version at Printa. The special feature of this type of knitting is that it consists of fine and soft loops on one side (usually the inside) and a soft, smooth surface on the other side.

What are the benefits?
- super absorbent
- extremely soft
- low crease
- breathable
- elastic
- ideal for warmer and cooler weather also for wearing
- comfortable to wear

ORGANIC DOUBLE GAS

Double glaze is simply an ensemble of two layers of gauze stitched together with small stitches that are not visible on one side of the fabric, so this side of the garment is, by definition, outside. We prefer to use organic cotton double glaze for summer garments, as it is one of the most airy materials, which is pleasant to wear even in the hottest heat, and its slightly wrinkled surface results in an interesting texture.

What are the benefits?
- breathable
- dries quickly
- soft to the touch
- dries quickly

BIOPAMUT POPLIN

Poplin can be made of wool, cotton, silk, rayon, polyester, or a mixture of these. The poplin we use at Printa is made from fine organic cotton with a strong weave and a matte and smooth finish.

What are the benefits?
- Extremely soft
- Easy to iron
- No creases
- Comfortable to wear
- Durable

COTTON CANVAS

This material is a true classic in the world of fashion. At Printa, we have been using cotton canvas in its completely raw state for a long time, as dyeing and bleaching are not produced during production, so it is a much more environmentally friendly solution. We also like the raw color of the material, which is somewhere between white and beige.

What are the benefits?
- strong, durable fabric
- easy to clean
- dries quickly
- breathable
- comfortable to wear
- environmentally friendly

JUTE COTTON CANVAS

Jute has been grown in the Indian subcontinent for at least 5,000 years to make textiles, and jute fibers are made from the jute plant. It is 100% biodegradable and recyclable, and does not produce toxic gases even when burned, making it environmentally friendly. It is very durable, so it is mainly used as a raw material for bags, toiletries and kitchen accessories.

What are the benefits?
- durable
- dries quickly
- environmentally friendly
- easy to clean

LEN

We love the bottom as a raw material One of the most sustainable and ancient materials in the history of fashion. It requires less water and pesticides to grow than cotton. Flax is made from strong and long flax fibers, which is completely biodegradable when unpainted. It withstands high temperatures well and has very good absorbency. The more we use it, the softer and more flexible it will be and the more comfortable it will be to wear.

What are the benefits?
- excellent absorbency
- dries quickly
- easy to clean
- breathable
- durable, durable fabric
- skin friendly
- environmentally friendly

LEN-SORONA ON CANVAS

DuPont Strait is made from 37% renewable plant-based ingredients and is sourced from a responsible source. Soron polymer fibers are currently used in the manufacture of sportswear, swimwear, suits, and artificial fur. USDA and OEKO-TEX certified.

What are the benefits?
- durable
- dries quickly
- breathable
- environmentally friendly

WOOL FELT

Wool felt is one of the most ancient man-made textiles. Wool is especially suitable for felting, much better than synthetic fibers. It has features such as e.g. unique durability and resilience. The waviness of the fibers provides natural flexibility. This flexibility makes it resistant, while the outer casing of the fibers forms a protective film layer that is the key to its abrasion resistance. Lanolin, a thin waxy coating on wool fibers, makes wool waterproof and lightfast. Wool can be dyed well as natural dyes are absorbed all the way to the center of the fiber and the color becomes intense and constant.

What are the benefits?
- excellent thermal insulation
- naturally dirt and water repellent
- fireproof, self-extinguishing
- renewable resource

TENCEL

Tencel is practically an environmentally friendly version of viscose (the production of which is very harmful to the environment). TENCEL ™ is made from lyocell and modal fibers in an environmentally friendly way from a natural raw material from a sustainable source. Say goodbye to viscose, present and future to tencel!

What are the benefits?
- one of the softest materials
- comfortable to wear
- skin friendly
- great absorbent
- environmentally friendly
- does not fluff
- maintains its quality for a long time

Recycled Materials at Printa

RECYCLED SHIRTS

Post consumer upcycling is the part of recycling an existing, used piece of clothing and creating a new piece of clothing with added value. This method is also widely used in the DIY community and in Printa: we have reached a very high level of production in recent years, recycling more than two tons of men’s shirts in this way. And why did you choose men's shirts? They have a good raw material, are predictable in shape and size, so they are also suitable for smaller series production. They are also used to make tunics, tops, accessories, clothes pads and pillow dolls.

RECYCLED LEATHER

Skin is recycled almost from the beginning. Our first leather products were leather bags made from old leather jackets.For us, leather is a valuable and high-quality raw material, and we consider it important to extend its lifespan

RECYCLED COTTON BEFORE USE

Worldwide, a lot of textiles become waste before use, sometimes due to minor manufacturing defects or wasteful design. We have cooperated with a Hungarian binder, from where we take over faulty cotton materials. It is then used either to avoid error or to be incorporated into the design. This is why this type of recycling is called pre-use recycling.

RECYCLED COTTON YARN

The knit goods we find are made from 100% recycled so-called regenerated cotton yarn. We knit the material in Hungarian knitwear, with an exciting honeycomb pattern, from which we then make your favorite sweaters and knitted pants.

OLD WOOL YARN

Getting old wool yarn is very difficult. A real drive hunt by the time we find it, we find it in the closet of a familiar grandmother. Our hand-knitted hats are all made of old wool yarn.

VINTAGE READY

One of the most beautiful versions of linen is vintage linen, which is still hand-woven. It is very expensive and can rarely be found, but if we get it, that material will definitely add value. We usually make bags, jackets and belts out of it.

Ratings

OEKO-TEX

OEKO-TEX is a human ecological testing and certification system for textile and leather products and the accessories used on them (threads, buttons, zippers, velcro fasteners, labels, etc.). It prescribes the maximum levels of chemicals that may be present in materials used in the textile and clothing industry that do not pose a risk to the human body. Accredited testing institutes belonging to the international OEKO-TEX Organization are responsible for certifying the products in this respect and then regularly checking that the products obtained with the OEKO-TEX certificate continuously meet the prescribed requirements. This ensures that products with the OEKO-TEX mark are not harmful to health.

GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD (GOTS)

The aim of the GOTS is to establish a universal standard for organic fabrics, from cotton growing and harvesting to environmentally and socially responsible production (Fair Trade) to labeling, in order to provide consumers with a credible guarantee. The standards apply to yarns, fabrics and clothing and cover the production, processing, manufacture, packaging, labeling, export, import and distribution of all natural fiber products. GOTS offers a continuous quality control and certification system from cotton fields to store shelves. GOTS-certified material is therefore much more than just a textile made from organic cotton. It’s one of the most comprehensive and rigorous ratings, which is why it’s so hard to get.

USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC BIO

Only products that are 100% or at least 95% organic, that is, ingredients from organic farming and processed in an organic way, are eligible for USDA Certified Organic organic certification. During the organic certification, the entire production system is examined: the production site, the lands and the production lines are inspected by continuous sampling.If you purchase a USDA-certified product, you can be sure that each of its ingredients has been carefully and rigorously inspected
