Earlier this year, global fibre producers Lenzing and Hyosung jointly developed a new sustainable fabric collection, which they presented at ISPO Munich in February. The new collection showcases the sustainable benefits of the two companies’ leading brands: Tencel Modal from Lenzing and creora elastane from Hyosung.
The collection comprises three fabric categories, starting with Lenzing Ecovero with creora eco-soft for a softer touch, whiter whites and low heat settable for reduced energy consumption. The second fabric line is Tencel Modal and creora PowerFit for a smooth, natural feel with superior shaping and compression, and the third is Tencel Modal and creora black for breathable, softer touch and deeper black with no grin through. The third collection marries functionality and aesthetics. It has a nylon product that it refers to as Aqua-x. The Aqua-x fabrics are cool to the touch, thanks to their large surface area coupled with minerals that have higher conductivity.
