Ultrafabrics®, the manufacturer of intelligent animal-free performance fabrics, is pleased to announce a collaboration with Lenzing AG, a company that makes sustainable wood-based fibers.
Ultrafabrics will be the first and only polyurethane material to use Lenzing AG's Tencel™ Modal fibers as a backcloth in its collections with 100-percent reinforced rayon as a result of the partnership.
Ultrafabrics is committed to environmental sustainability in all parts of its operations. It aims to have 50 percent rapidly renewable and/or recycled materials in its whole product portfolio across 11 markets by 2030. It's a big aim, but it'll help the company achieve its wider objective of making future-proof materials through a more circular design process.
To assist the company to achieve its ambitious environmental goals, Ultrafabrics has chosen to partner with Tencel™ branded fibers. Tencel Modal fibers are mostly made from sustainable beech wood procured from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and/or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified forests in Austria and surrounding countries. To make the process environmentally friendly, numerous Lenzing technologies have been incorporated into the production of Tencel™ Modal fibers. By using renewable energy and recovering process chemicals, Lenzing aims to protect resources for future generations. This collaboration encourages us to use renewable resources.
Jennifer Hendren, Senior Director of Product Development with Ultrafabrics, said they’re happy to be associated with the Tencel™ brand and the Lenzing AG family, a bold firm with equally ambitious environmental ambitions. They share their commitment to bringing their sustainability journey to the forefront while maintaining product quality and integrity. They collaborate with major minds and take delight in ensuring that their global audience has faith in both of their brands.
