The collaboration showcased the benefits of the two companies’ leading brands and retailers new levels of performance and innovation.

The new sustainable fabric collection of Lenzing and Hyosung were presented at the ISPO Munich 2019.

 “This Lenzing and Hyosung collaboration fits perfectly under the slogan Better Together” says Andreas Guertier, 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” added Guertier.

The collection offers Lenzing Ecovero with creora eco-soft spandex/elastane for a softer touch, whiter whites and low heat settable for reduced energy consumption. Tencel Modal and creora PowerFit delivers a smooth, natural feel with superior shaping and compression, whilst Tencel Modal and creora Black creates breathable, softer touch and deeper black fabrics with no grin through.

Energy and Water Saving Reductions

“We are delighted to partner with Lenzing with this innovative fabric collection to deliver enhanced performance with products that use less energy and water and improved environmental care that today’s informed consumers demand” says Simon Whitmarsh-Knight, EMEA Marketing Director, Performance Textiles Business, Hyosung.
