Nanotechnology creates the clothes of the future

Tenowa - Fabrics made from textile and agri-food waste.

It’s designed through the valorization of textile and agri-food residues, with attractive design and with high quality and comfort. Tenowa is an innovative range of environmentally friendly fabrics made in the North of Portugal.

Winner of the COTEC Product Innovation Award 2018, this new brand is a giant step forward, creating sustainable fabrics, produced from textile waste and with functional properties through the use of agri-food waste.


The innovation factor

This product, which uses 100% recycled raw material, is made using technologically advanced textile equipment and stands out due to the great potential for recovery in its finish and its intrinsic properties (antimicrobial activity, deodorant, antistatic, among others).

In other words, it contributes to reducing the impact of the region's industries and offers the consumer an extremely high-quality solution.

As a direct result of intensive research on trends and behaviors and a strong investment in the Research & Development department, in addition to close collaboration with CeNTI, Riopele sought to capitalize on the opportunities associated with the green economy and actively contribute to its growth.

This innovative textile project, co-financed by Portugal 2020, in the framework of the Programa Operacional de Competitividade e Internacionalização do Fundo Europeu de Desenvolvimento Regional (FEDER), is the materialization of an extensive research and development work of Riopele in partnership with CeNTI, CITEVE and the Universidade Católica Portuguesa.
