Fabric Blended With Tencel Lyocell & Creora Spells Functionality
US based Laguna Fabric has launched a new collection called Natural Selection made with Lenzing’s Tencel Lyocell and Hyosung’s Creora bio-based spandex fibre, which altogether prioritises style, functionality, and environmental responsibility.
According to Hyosung, Creora bio-based spandex replaces 30 percent of petroleum-based resources with bio-based materials sourced from industrial field corn.
While, Tencel Lyocell fibres are made from sustainably sourced wood and produced through a unique closed loop production process which recovers and reuses the solvents used, minimising the environmental impact of production.
The Natural Selection Collection includes refined single jerseys, ribs, and interlocks suitable for contemporary women’s collections, including premium tops, first-layer shapewear, and form-fitting dresses.
“Consumers are demanding high-performance, comfortable fabrics backed-up with genuine sustainability benefits, which this collaboration between Laguna, Hyosung and Lenzing delivers,” Simon Whitmarsh-Knight, Hyosung’s Global Marketing Director – Textiles said.
