Lenzing released a new fibre this year in February, our pioneering Indigo Color technology. This incorporates indigo pigment directly into TENCEL™ branded modal fibres using a one-step spun-dyeing process. While the denim industry is a natural candidate for this innovation, we are very excited about the versatility of our fibre, which is suitable for wovens and knits. In addition, the environmental credentials are excellent. Compared to water and energy-intensive conventional indigo dyeing, this technology provides indigo coloration with substantial water, chemical and electricity savings, along with less wastewater produced, and no heat energy used. This delivers superior colour fastness relative to conventional indigo dyeing whilst using substantially fewer resources. This innovative offering was awarded with the EU Ecolabel, a label of environmental excellence awarded to products meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle.
