NEW YORK — Fil Doux Textiles, a Brooklyn-based textile company producing mill-direct upholstery, is launching Pro-Tech Plus, a bleach cleanable, water-based ink and denim protectant, which is now available for its Otratex collections.

Otratex with Pro-Tech Plus is a bleach cleanable, water-based protectant for a vinyl alternative that can stand up to industrial-grade cleaners.

As part of an eco-friendly textile series, Pro-Tech Plus ensures the fabric will not erode when using bleach and meeting rigid standards.

Designed for the hospitality, cruise, and contract industries, Otratex is made with natural enzymes embedded in the material that creates enhanced degradability.

Within 30 years, the material fully decomposes when placed in an anaerobic environment such as a landfill, returning to the natural elements that comprise it.

The collection, which comes in over 270 natural and textured leather interpretations and is completely customizable, is now being treated with Fil Doux Textiles’ proprietary protectant, Pro-Tech Plus, which accommodates the intense cleaning demands and rigorous sanitizing requirements of hospitals, hotels, restaurants, and cruise ship industries.

“We are constantly being inspired by nature’s allure and authenticity, which is why we sought out to create a product that could protect our earth-friendly Otratex, all while maintaining its durability and luxury feel,” Leo Novik, CEO of Fil Doux Textiles, says in a statement.

Otratex is manufactured in the company’s fully vertical, tariff-free mills located in Chile and Brazil, allowing for customization and competitive lead times.

Like all Fil Doux Textiles’ products, the collection is produced using sustainable practices on an industrial scale—dye waters for fabrics are reused, production power is generated by wind and solar panels, and leftover fabrics are repurposed for packaging.

For environmental sustainability, Fil Doux Textiles has partnered with a non-profit group, One Tree Planted, with a pledge to donate 1,000 trees to Brazilian Rainforests for every 1,000 yards of Otratex purchased.
