TENCEL™ Fibers empowers the Forever Young Inspiration to be More Active

Lenzing recently collaborated with influential designers, manufacturers and suppliers around the world to produce Forever Young, an exciting collection of intimates, activewear and outerwear. This versatility provides unprecedented value for the wearer. The collection was produced with cutting-edge, seamless technology and uses soft natural TENCEL™ branded fibers that are environmentally friendly. Intelligent design has been used to produce pieces that not only encourage the wearer to exercise, but also bring powerful benefits to the body.

Inspiration for Forever Young

The healthy living movement has grown hugely in recent years and exercise is now widely acknowledged as being crucial for wellbeing. As a result, textiles now need to work harder than ever. There is a growing demand for textiles that enhance our bodies’ movement and encourage us to be active in the first place. The concept is simple: exercising causes the body to produce endorphins that makes us feel young, happy and energised. Forever Young is a collection of garments that subconsciously creates the desire to be active, invigorated and enriched in our daily lives. The collection, enabled by TENCEL™ branded fibers, was recently exhibited at Interfiliere Paris where it was enjoyed by a large audience of industry leaders.

Forever Young is a fascinating example of how TENCEL™ branded fibers can be used to create innovative, cutting-edge products.

Fibers That Feel So Right

Producing a collection of this calibre depends heavily on finding the right combination of product, knit technology and yarn. For this project, natural functional fibers were the smartest solution, due to their unique properties. TENCEL™ Lyocell and TENCEL™ Modal fibers (with Eco Soft and Micro technologies) are blended with Merino, Umorfil, Coolmax or Celliant to produce the most comfortable active wear.

Lenzing’s TENCEL™ branded fibers are perfectly suited to this type of apparel for several reasons:

  • They are soft and smooth, making them extremely comfortable.
  • They are soothing and cooling when worn against the skin, making them incredibly useful for activewear.
  • They are also breathable, with an amazing ability to absorb and release moisture, thereby providing athletes with excellent thermal regulation.

Sustainable and Ethical

TENCEL™ branded fibers enable wearers to “feel so right”. Feeling right also means doing right by the planet, and these fibers are no exception. Both TENCEL™ Lyocell and TENCEL™ Modal fibers are produced using wood from sustainably managed plantations and renewable forests. They are ethically produced, with responsible use of chemicals and a low water footprint. This approach means clothing produced are not only intelligent but also eco-responsible.
