Lenzing & Hyosung Collaborate on Sustainable Fabric Collection

Global fiber producers Hyosung are set to present a new sustainable fabric collection at the upcoming ISPO show in February 2019. This new collaboration will showcase the sustainable benefits of the two companies’ leading brands; TENCEL Modal from Lenzing and creora elastane from Hyosung.

THE collection includes:  

  • LENZING ECOVERO with creora eco-soft for a softer touch, whiter whites and low heat settable for reduced energy consumption;
  • TENCEL Modal & creora PowerFit for smooth, natural feel with superior shaping and compression; and
  • TENCEL Modal & creora Black for breathable, softer touch and deeper black with no grin through.

“This Lenzing and Hyosung collaboration fits perfectly under the slogan Better Together,” says Andreas Guertler, head of active and outdoor Global Business Development for Lenzing AG. “The combination of natural softness, comfort and performance from TENCEL and the power, fit and recovery of creora elastane allows us to offer customers new products for sports and leisure clothing with unrivalled sustainable credentials.”
