We see this opportunity as the right moment to join forces with local talented fashion designers to share the great values of TENCEL™, LENZING™ECOVERO™ and how sustainability would bring this industry steps ahead, responsibly.”, said Winston A. Mulyadi, Lenzing Indonesia Commercial Head - SEA Region, talking about the collaboration during the Plaza Indonesia’s Men Fashion Week.

One of the curated designers of Eco Age, Wilsen Willim, utilizes playful and experimental details while contrasting them with simple and classic silhouettes. Intricate origami folding which elevated each of the pieces has become a unique signature of the brand. For Spring-Summer 2020, Wilsen Willim Men’s Collection is accented by hand-made embroidery details and also macramé made by yarns created from left-over cut fabrics of Wilsen Willim past collection, to maintain the sustainability process.

Not just designers and brand owners, Lenzing also hopes that the fashion consumers will be responsible enough to choose the materials they wear.
