Lenzing Group unveils Tencel Luxe lyocell filament
The Lenzing Group, supplier of high-quality, botanic cellulose fibres for textiles and nonwovens companies, has unveiled a new product, Tencel Luxe branded lyocell filament, at a recent event in Paris. The Tencel Luxe filament is a new milestone in the implementation of the company’s sCore TEN strategy, with Lenzing entering the filament market.

The branded filaments are the new player for sustainable high-end cellulose textiles by offering superior aesthetics, performance and comfort level that allow them to be the perfect partner with other noble fibres such as silk, cashmere or wool. The smooth surface of the Tencel branded Luxe filament gives fabrics a silky smooth feel and liquid-like drape for the most sensual silhouettes. Moreover, Tencel Luxe branded filaments are naturally breathable due to their wood-based origin and offer outstanding colour fastness, enabling designers to express bold colour palettes where creativity knows no boundaries.

Tencel Luxe eco-botanic lyocell filaments are made from wood pulp, which is sourced from sustainable wood in line with Lenzing’s strict wood and pulp policy. They are produced using Lenzing’s pioneering closed-loop lyocell production process, which has received the “European Award for the Environment” from the European Union. The process ensures minimal environmental impact due to low process water and energy use and raw materials consumption.

Tencel Luxe is another proof of Lenzing’s innovation strength. It will open new markets for the company and for its customers and partners and will allow the company to participate in the premium segment of the fabrics market. With the help of Tencel Luxe, Lenzing will support the luxury apparel industry to redraw the borders between responsibility and high-end luxury fashion, and is part of Lenzing’s ongoing commitment towards sustainability-driven innovation.

The new filament will be produced at the Lenzing site in Austria. Lenzing plans to expand the capacity at this site over the coming years and has started the basic engineering for a large scale commercial line for filaments. To optimise a new plant design and start up, this Lenzing site was chosen as the future manufacturing hub for Tencel Luxe. (GK)
