TENCEL™ x REFIBRA™
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers with REFIBRA™ technology are manufactured in an award-winning efficient closed-loop process, contributing to the circular economy in the textile industry. The use of resources and energy is reduced to a minimum, at the same time we achieve distinguished level of environmental protection and resource preservation.
A seemingly simple idea is at the core of this innovation: The pioneering REFIBRA™ technology involves upcycling a substantial proportion of cotton scraps, e.g. from garment production or postconsumer waste, in addition to wood pulp sourced from certified sustainable forestry.
