Lenzing diversifies denim offering with matte lyocell fibers
The new Tencel branded lyocell fibers reduce the shine of conventional lyocell denim fabrics whilst maintaining all the benefits of the fiber.
The Lenzing Group is expanding its sustainable offering for the denim industry with the introduction of matte Tencel branded lyocell fibers. The new fiber type is specially designed to scatter light and permanently diminish sheen in denim applications, further enabling versatility of indigo-dyed denim fabrics.
“As a leader in fiber production, we work closely with our customers and mill partners to address their product needs. Our partners wanted the option to choose denim fabrics that are less shiny, and we listened,” said Tricia Carey, Director of Global Business Development Denim and Americas, Lenzing AG. “By implementing an innovative production process to create matte Tencel Lyocell fibers, we are setting a new standard for indigo applications.”
Denim look with eco-friendly credentials
Made with a resource efficient closed-loop production process, the new fiber type maintains all the comfort benefits of standard Tencel Lyocell fibers to bring next-to-skin smoothness while giving dark indigo dye fabrics a deep and lusterless appearance.
Lenzing takes full accountability of its production processes by providing physical identification for every Tencel branded fiber with its fiber identification technology. The new matte Tencel Lyocell fibers are fully traceable using this technology, assuring both brands and consumers that the raw materials it uses originate from responsible resources.
