The first in this color palette are The Essentials, based on the desire for a clean and preserved existence. A naive, minimalist, romantic and functional existence.

There is an urgent need to be transparent and fair in the use of materials, throughout the production process and in working conditions.


An inclusive and diverse fashion is sought in all aspects: a good performance of the fabric, the shape,  the durability and with knowledge of the fibers.

Attractive and versatile clothing that adapts to the attitudes that preserve and save the bioeconomy.

The woman of the 21st century is concerned about health and the effects that some garments of oppression may produce. Bra innovation is urgently needed; taking as a reference all the elements of sports bras to reinvent traditional bra.

The possibility is opened for designers to come together and work as a team, providing knowledge, ideas and materials.

A new generation of bras is born that combine technology and charm, due to the strong demand for comfort, elasticity, breathability and health, resulting in a fusion of sport bra innovation and lightweight prettiness of lingerie.

During confinement, the best-selling garments were pajamas, which offer comfortable, timeless and quality shapes; and the new generation of bras based on the performance of the sports bra, have led to the design of light and beautiful lingerie.

There is a strong demand for refined comfort that is leading to a unique lace design, where modern comfort is combined with the most iconic elements of lingerie.

A concept of acceptance of our differences, pride in our cultural heritage and the colors of our skin has been developed.

The essential for each body has emerged in 5 different skin tones, which are the new generation shapewear.

In summary, the pandemic situation we are experiencing has led us to focus on intensive studies in support of healthy breasts, in combination with new technologies and the use of technique in fabrics and finishes. To be tested on cross-supported fabrics and compression and overlap zones.

In addition to the seamless, invisible heat seal, the emphasis is on construction refinements, combining high technology, strength and elegance. There is a strong demand for sustainable items.

Our win to innovate and in the current pandemic situation, from Cintas Martell we do not stop in our fight to struggle fight against the coronavirus, developing this time elastic and rigid ribbons with an antimicrobial finishing. With the efforts of our R&D Department, we have developed a new collection of anti-COVID-19 elastic tapes under the name of Martell Protect.

Taking care of hand washing and the continuous use of masks and hydroalcoholic gel seem not to be enough, because the viruses continue to deposit on any surface, making their expansion possible.

The new Martell Protect collection is made up of a selection of elastic tapes intended for both the medical-health sector and the textile manufacturing sector in general. This collection is made with treated yarns that inactivate all types of microbes and even viruses such as Covid-19, maintaining the elasticity and design properties of each tape without this finishing compromises its qualities.

Given the great concern of our society to keep ourselves protected at all times, at Cintas Martell we want to focus our efforts on the most exposed sectors: medical and health personnel, messengers, dependents, caregivers, educators, public sector workers, etc.

The Martell Protect collection is characterized by having a compound based on benzalkonium chloride, an aesthetically invaluable feature, although it is from the point of view of maximum protection and an efficiency of up to 99.98%. Its resistance is guaranteed up to 100 washes at a temperature not exceeding 40º. This compound is effective against viruses (including Covid-19), fungi, bacteria and yeasts, avoiding unpleasant smells and maintaining the hygiene of the tape and its freshness for a longer period. As they are articles made with elastic, it is recommended not to use a tumble dryer as it is used to in this type of manufacture.

There is a before and after the pandemic that affects the behavior and concerns of our society. So we consider that all the articles that grant us guarantee and protection will help us cope with the consequences of the coronavirus with a little more peace of mind.

With the Martell Protect collection, we intend to bring our little grain of sand in the battle against the Covid-19 virus, offering our customers the possibility of complementing their products by following the latest trends and changes in habits.

The active principle used in the Martell Protect collection is approved by the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency), is also registered in REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances) and is listed as an exempt compound from the substances of the SVCH list (List of substances restricted by the EU).

Rumors about the need for reinvention in the lingerie and intimate textiles sector in general have been transformed into powerful voices that shout the importance of this change finally coming to be at the level of our society.

Consumers are under the influence of e-commerce, and e-commerce is winning the battle over retail.

The pandemic has helped accelerate this change, and it is making instantaneous our way of communicating and relating to each other.

For Cintas Martell, to visit our clients and present them the new collections and novelties, to comment with them how their products evolve in this new situation, the need to develop new articles, to be able to know their concerns … and everything in the distance, without the personal contact that this pandemic forces us to avoid, has been a new challenge for our entire team.

For this reason and to continue offering our clients our support in this new situation, we have created our Renaissance collection, based on overcoming such an exceptional moment that the whole world is experiencing.

From the highest spheres of the intimate clothing sector, confinement has been used to study in depth the extreme situation that must be reversed, for which a series of urgent needs to adapt to this new era are proposed.

  • Need for INNOVATION in the design of traditional bras, reaction to the request for inclusivity, comfort and morphological diversity.
  • Need to substantially improve ECOLOGICAL AWARENESS with real solutions and improved communication.
  • Need to REDESIGN the way lingerie products are displayed in stores to allow additional cross-lifestyle assortments.
  • Need for REDUCTION in PRODUCTION to adapt to new start-ups that inject novelty.
  • Need to introduce HYBRID CLASSIFICATIONS in the color developments, in the properties of the fabrics and in the final presentation of the product.

Cintas Martell wants to collaborate in this change, initiating a series of proposals and trends that will be reflected day by day and in direct communication with our clients digitally. The beginning: the new “Renaissance” collection.


A new trend: digital creation colors.

The color palette selected for the Summer 2022 collection and suggested by Eurovet focuses on the essential, without shock effects or experiments, in which the most inspiring colors in history have been chosen.

The tones proposed in this palette perfectly express the need for harmony, which coincides with the reality of a different market with poorly defined seasons.


This new range of colors can be read in two directions: palettes of dominant tones vertically and colors of shades of the same atmosphere as the dominant ones, horizontally.



Finally, the January edition of the Interfilière Salon that takes place every year in Paris, will be 100% virtual from 15 to 26 February 2021, where we have presented our new collection “Renaissance”.

Cintas Martell, at the forefront in elastic and rigid tapes


When all the firms were committed to opening up markets and production plants in Asia and to importing most part of products from there, the pandemic caused by the coronavirus arrives and suddenly, we realized the immeasurable value of the national industrial fabric. Suddenly China stops being the main supplier of everything and we look inward to discover firms like Cintas Martell, a family business with more than 45 years of experience and with a deep social and human responsibility that, in front of the crisis of the Covid19, has been able to put all its “know-how” and productive capacity at the service of our society, developing a line of special elastics for masks and IPE’s.


Traditional manufacturer of customized woven tapes (both elastic and rigid), Martell is characterized by being in constant movement and always open to continuous changes and market trends. This has helped to adapt its production to current needs, focused on a strong demand for individual protection equipment (IPEs) both nationally and internationally.

Its R&D department has created special elastics that stand high temperatures, specialsanitizing and disinfection treatments for the healthcare area, while meeting the highest quality standards, supported by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification.  Thus, the business set of the textile sector that has been reinvented with this pandemic, can have the right raw materials to produce new safety and personal protection products, without having to look for it beyond our borders.



In addition to these products of rabid actuality, in the catalogue of Martell Tapes we also find an extensive range of tapes made with different materials, such as polyester, polyamide, cotton, rayon, elastomer, latex, jute, lamé, etc., being able to develop new articles according to the needs and indications of each client. Furthermore these items, can be dyed in any color and with different finishings, so the customization is complete in order to satisfy any requirement.

Finally, it should be mentioned that the firm allocates part of its production to donations to non-profit organizations of our society.

Elastics to fight Covid-19

The Covid-19 virus has wreaked havoc on our society. They have put to the test the health policies of all the countries around the world and of our society in general, including companies and the entire industrial net.

In our R&D Department we wanted to put our knowledge at the service of society, creating special elastics in record time. These elastics can stand high temperatures and special sanitization and disinfection treatments for the health sector, while meeting the highest quality and comfort standards, supported by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification.

What is the elastic tape?

What is the elastic tape?

The elastic band is a flat and narrow fabric with characteristics of elasticity. Elasticity designates the mechanical property of the tape to undergo reversible deformations when it is subjected to the action of an external force, and to recover its original shape if this external force is eliminated.

Its structure can be smooth, double-decker, double-faced, tubular or jacquard. Its main use is as a complement to textiles: clothes accessories, cuff reinforcement, piping, bras, underwear, swimsuits, socks, waistbands, corsets, shoes, sportswear, girdles, protective equipment for the health sector, labor protection equipment, sports equipment in general, handicrafts, office supplies and graphic arts, industrial supplies, household items and home textiles, furniture, etc.
