Lenzing Gruppe and Litrax AG announce the introduction of the unique combination of TENCEL and LITRAX-1 natural bamboo stem fibers.

Mr. Felix Stutz, President of Litrax, stated, “We see Lenzing as an ideal partner due to their world leadership in man-made cellulose fibers such as TENCEL, Lenzing Modal and Lenzing Viscose.

Lenzing is a leader in ecological fiber innovation. With the introduction of the Botanic Concept, Lenzing showed that Lenzing fibers are an ecological alternative to cotton. A Life Cycle Assessment also demonstrated Lenzing's environmentally sound processes.

Four spinning partners have been selected to introduce this special bamboo yarn to the textile industry. These spinners will create a range of worsted and ring spun yarns for the market.

Litrax will deliver the LITRAX-1 natural bamboo fibers with a special DNA coding to protect its vertical supply chain and customers. The DNA coding will ensure that purchasers are buying the original, authentic bamboo fiber from LITRAX-1.

Litrax's goal is to manufacture natural fibers with mechanical and enzymatic processes. The first such product is bamboo which is a fast renewable resource with universal applications. In textiles, LITRAX-1 bamboo can be combined with other fibers to create unique properties that will allow finished garments to provide enhanced comfort and many other benefits to the wearer. Litrax has already launched stem fibers and nano particles in combination with man-made fibers to the market.

Litrax is a sustainable, vertical and synergistic company, headquartered in Switzerland. They have developed natural and sustainable fibers and additives for various applications and industries including textiles, lifestyle, bioplastics and automotive.

LITRAX is an innovative, environmentally conscious supplier of advanced technology products and materials to discriminating markets with offices in Switzerland and the United States.
