TENCEL™ Lyocell- TENCEL™ Luxe - Zippers
From nature, back to nature.
Lenzing TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are derived from sustainable wood sources, harvested from certified and controlled sources following the stringent guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy.1
These fibers come from tree pulp, dissolved in a non-toxic organic solvent, using a closed-loop manufacturing process which reuses water and more than 99% of solvents.
They are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.
We have been in Lenzing visiting the mill and we saw how i
The eco-botanical version of silk.
It is an innovative new eco-filament.
Made by Lenzing, it is derived from renewable wood sources and is the outcome of eco-friendly engineering that grants forests protection and their ecosystem, so they can continue to capture and store carbon dyoxide.
“From Trees, To Skin, To Trees”, while TENCEL™ Luxe is long lasting during its use, after disposal filaments break down organically, meaning they dissolve and decompose back into earth.
We fell in love the first time we touched a fabric made with this fiber. It's gentle on the skin and gives fabrics a feminine and elegant fluidity.
Our zippers are manufactured in Italy in the Lampo mill, by Ditta Giovanni Lanfranchi.
They all are in brushed nickel-free metal, Oeko Tex Standard 100 certified, with NewLife recycled polyester ribbon. Currently this is the best solution available on the market as it maintains the size, the compactness of the zip and guarantees an excellent seal over time.
We are looking forward to replacing recycled polyester ribbon with a TENCEL™ one, unfortunately it’s not possible yet.
However we are actively following this product development with our supplier.
