INVISTA, the owner of LYCRA® fibre, and Lenzing, a leading producer of man-made cellulosics like rayon, Modal and Lyocell, are working together to bring an improved aesthetic performance to stretch fabrics. By combining INVISTA’s patented LYCRA® dualFX® fabric technology with LENZING’s TENCEL® fibre, the two companies are delivering a unique solution to industry: cellulosic denim fabrics with significantly improved shape retention.
The revival of TENCEL® fibre in denim is also due in part to the environmental factor. Blending TENCEL® into denim fabric results in a significant improvement for the environment because it is made from wood grown in sustainably managed forests. The production process for TENCEL® fibre is based on a closed loop solvent spinning process and represents the greatest environmental achievement in cellulose fibre technology.
Several styles of bedding that use TENCEL® Lyocell including pillow cases, sheets, duvet covers and more. Don’t suffer warm nights anymore caused by being too warm or menopause-related sleep issues. This amazing fabric feels like silk, but it can be washed like cotton.
“Stretch technology and the increased use of performance fibers in new innovative shades and constructions was a key trend,” said Neil Bell, global material fabric and fiber innovation director at Levi Strauss & Co. at the Première Vision Fair in Paris in November.
The show demonstrated how denim is entering an era of collaboration as a route to newness. For example, fiber producers Invista and Lenzing held a joint press conference to present new cellulosic denim fabrics with improved shape retention by combining Invista’s Lycra DualFX fabric technology with Lenzing’s TENCEL® fiber.
