At Heimtextil, which will start from 07th to 10th January 2020 in Frankfurt, Lenzing Group will continue its journey towards circular economy. Lenzing’s latest breakthrough for its pioneering REFIBRATM technology with the industry’s first successful production of TENCELTM Lyocell fibers using post-consumer cotton waste will also be the high-end basis for sustainable high-quality Home & Interiors products.
TENCELTM x REFIBRATM fibers for a sustainable future Recently, Lenzing announced the second phase of REFIBRATM technology upgrade by incorporating up to 10% of post-consumer cotton waste into the current mixture of 30% recycled materials alongside pre-consumer cotton waste. This step is a key milestone in the textile industry and empowers brands and retailers who are looking for eco-responsible solutions by giving textile waste a second life. Transparency being key, Lenzing uses a special identification technology for TENCELTM x REFIBRATM fibers so to assure consumers that the fibers in the final textile product contain recycled materials.
Sleeping in bed textiles containing TENCELTM x REFIBRATM fibers the quality of bed textile materials is part of the secret of a good sleep comfort. TENCELTM Lyocell fibers with REFIBRATM technology facilitate good moisture management by regulating the absorption and release of moisture, thus supporting the body’s natural thermal regulation and providing breathability comfort throughout the night. In addition, the smooth fiber surface creates fabrics that are gentle on the skin.
BEDifferent innovative REFIBRATM technology meets creativity Lenzing invited talented students from top European universities, such as Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano, University of the Arts London, and Aalto University Finland, to dive into the world of sustainable Lenzing fibers and create a bedding collection inspired by their vision and with respect for the environment.
The next generation’s way of thinking was very inspiring to all of us and with this project the respect for people and the planet came into life with every single TENCELTM x REFIBRATM fiber.
