Sometimes one clients need us to produce end garments for them: this is where our Studio team, Andrea and Alba, come in. Their experience in product development allows them to carry out our clients' pre-productions and garments productions.

We help brands communicate their transparency, innovation and material stories to the end consumer. Pilar, our Head of Brand & Communication, and Isabella, our Brand Communication specialist, advise and support our clients in integrating the story of their PYRATEX® fabrics with their own. 

They are at the core of the PYRATEX® brand identity, ensuring it is maintained throughout our activities,
