Green, low carbon and circular economy are just a few of the trending words derived from new developments in the textile industry over the last few years. Low carbon, eco-friendly products are becoming imperative in the textiles industry. The launch of carbon-zero TENCEL™ fibers provides a new way for home textile consumers to turn their environmental commitments into action. Biodegradable and derived from botanic origin, fabrics produced using carbon-zero TENCEL™ fibers not only possess the functional advantages of standard TENCEL™ branded fibers, but have also been certified as CarbonNeutral® products, certifying in achieving carbon neutrality in line with the CarbonNeutral Protocol.
Carbon-zero TENCEL™ fibers make an impressive entrance to become the first choice for future carbon-zero homes.

Lenzing also showcased the use of TENCEL™ Lyocell Fill fibers in bed fillings, displaying the full range of home applications using TENCEL™ fibers, including bed sheets, quilt covers, towels, bathrobes, carpets among other products.
In an interview at the exhibition, Mr. Lin Zongzhou, Procurement Director and Mr. Lin Zongzhou, Marketing Director from TON DESIGN, together with David Dai, Commercial Director from Lenzing China Textiles, further elaborated on the characteristics and application advantages of TENCEL™ fibers. TENCEL™ Lyocell LF fibers with Micro technology can reach a fineness of 0.9dtex, making fabrics more delicate and lighter to give users maximum natural comfort. In addition, the fibers are suitable for the production of lighter, finer, luxurious and delicate home textiles.
