Lenzing will present for first time BEDifferent with Tencel x Refibra fibres at Heimtextil (January 7-10, 2020, Frankfurt). Tencel Lyocell fibres with Refibra technology facilitate good moisture management by regulating absorption and release of moisture thus supporting body’s natural thermal regulation and provide breathability comfort throughout the night.

In addition, the smooth fibre surface of the Tencel Lyocell fibres create fabrics that are gentle on the skin. Lenzing invited talented students from top European universities, such as Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano, University of the Arts London, and Aalto University Finland, to dive into the world of sustainable Lenzing fibres and create a bedding collection inspired by their vision and with respect for the environment.

Lenzing’s latest breakthrough for its pioneering Refibra technology with the industry’s first successful production of Tencel Lyocell fibres using post-consumer cotton waste will also be the high-end basis for sustainable high-quality home & interiors products.

Recently, Lenzing announced the second phase of Refibra technology upgrade by incorporating up to 10 per cent of post-consumer cotton waste into the current mixture of 30 per cent recycled materials alongside pre-consumer cotton waste. This step is a key milestone in the textile industry and empowers brands and retailers who are looking for eco-responsible solutions by giving textile waste a second life. Transparency being key, Lenzing uses a special identification technology for Tencel x Refibra fibres so to assure consumers that the fibres in the final textile product contain recycled materials.

“We at Lenzing care about the future and invest in sustainable solutions. Innovative thinking minds created Tencel x Refibra fibres and young and creative thinking minds created the BEDifferent collection. The next generation’s way of thinking was very inspiring to all of us and with this project the respect for people and the planet came into life with every single Tencel x Refibra fibre. We are very excited to present the best three collections at our booth during Heimtextil and the students will be happy to share their way of thinking with the public about sustainable fibres,” said Ebru Bayramoglu, head of global business development home & interiors in Lenzing. The collections are not for sale but might inspire home textile producers for future bedding concepts.

The Lenzing Group stands for ecologically responsible production of specialty fibres made from the renewable raw material wood. As an innovation leader, Lenzing is a partner of global textile and nonwoven manufacturers and drives many new technological developments. The Lenzing Group’s high-quality fibres form the basis for a variety of textile applications ranging from elegant ladies clothing to versatile denims and high-performance sports clothing. Due to their consistent high quality, their biodegradability and compostability. Lenzing fibres are also highly suitable for hygiene products and agricultural applications.
