Historically this special fiber has been reserved for the finest of lingerie but is now stepping out into the world in a big way!
Lenzing™ Micro Modal fabric is a plant based luxurious fabric made from sustainably sourced beech trees. Wood is far too valuable to only use it for extracting pulp to produce fibers. Lenzing our source for our Micro Modal and Modal fabric respects the assets of every tree. Use all spoil none is their mantra. They make the best use of this natural resource and turn it into as many valuable products as possible. This concept is called biorefinery.
At their biorefineries in Lenzing and Paskov they use the renewable source material wood as a universal replacement for non-renewable raw materials that are faced with increasing criticism such as crude oil. Therefore they aim to utilize and commercialize all of the wood’s natural components by turning them into pulp for Lenzing fibers or other useful Lenzing solutions for various industries.
Lenzing’s biorefinery products for example provide valuable supplies to the food industry such as acetic acid which acts as the perfect ingredient to pickle vegetables and xylose which is processed into a low-calorie sugar substitute.
Sustainable fibers are our passion. Like Lenzing we want to generate additional benefits for people and the environment in cooperation with our partners. This idea is at the heart of our sustainability strategy and our related ambitious targets.
From Lenzing: Originally our sustainable thinking and acting was merely based on the use of the natural raw material wood. However in the meantime we want even more make a substantial contribution to a better world together with our customers and partners and carry this idea into the business of the fashion brands. This is because complex global challenges demand a cooperative approach. With our Naturally Positive sustainability strategy we are transforming our mission into reality. Sustainable production means that we check the entire value chain in accordance with our strict requirements.
The Lenzing process starts with wood procurement for pulp production and ultimately ends with the products for the consumers. More than 99 percent of our wood comes from sustainable forestry. It is certified or controlled according to FSC® (FSC-C041246) and or PEFC™ (PEFC/06-33-92). They are also actively involved in the protection of endangered forests and primeval forests because they know about the significance of healthy forests as the most important CO2 storage for our climate
For Lenzing sustainable production means providing preferably closed cycles in the pulp and fiber production for chemicals water and energy. Used process water is purified in efficient wastewater treatment plants. In addition their biorefinery sites use the raw material wood in such an optimal way that they not only produce pulp for our fibers but also valuable biorefinery products and co-products. By using the energy stored in the wood their biorefineries are completely energy self-sufficient like in Paskov (Czech Republic) or as it is the case in Lenzing (Austria) they are to a large extent not dependent on additional energy purchases and therefore energy self-sufficient.

You ask about comfort? Comfort can mean different things to different people. Take a minute what does comfort mean to you? A line we love from from an article Comfort Has Many Facets in positivepsychologynews.com by Aren Cohen MBA MAPP 07 is this comfort can be both a noun and a verb and is defined by Google as either a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or consolation for grief or anxiety. Aren goes on to say that if comfort and it’s cousin comfortable are not emotions yet clearly when we are in a state of comfort some positive emotion is involved.
In other words when we are experiencing comfort and feel free we typically feel good. When we feel good we do good. The Ripple Effect at it’s finest.
