Beginning their life as trees, discover why fabrics made from Lenzing’s silky-soft, easy-care fibres are the perfect fit for your wardrobe.
At Seasalt, we’re passionate about creating clothes that are stylish and beautiful to wear but also practical and easy to care for. A crucial part of our design team’s role is researching and testing exciting textile innovations, so season after season we continue to feature the very best fabrics in our collections. As well as carefully considering look and feel, we’re also committed to making our ranges ever more sustainable and socially responsible.
Lenzing is one of world’s leading manufacturers of sustainable fibres and we use several of their pioneering fabrics in our collections. All Lenzing fibres are made from natural wood, which is sourced from renewable forests and processed using resource-preserving technologies. As well as being better for the environment, these fibres have lots of natural qualities our customers love. They are soft to the touch, beautifully drapey and lightweight, and they enhance fabric breathability.
Here’s a little more about why we love them:
Naturally comfortable to wear thanks to their gentle feel, these fibres are processed in an award-winning closed-loop system which captures and reuses 99% of the water and chemicals again and again. As well as minimising harmful waste in their manufacture, the fibres are compostable and biodegradable at the end of their life.
With the smooth, lustrous quality of silk while being easy to wash and wear, these EU Label certified fibres have a significantly lower environmental impact than conventional viscose and are compostable and biodegradable. Modal is breathable and feels cool to the touch, so it’s wonderful in warm weather. It’s suited to everything from shirts and skirts to trousers and dresses because of its beautiful drape and the fact that it doesn’t crease easily.
The gold standard for eco-responsible production, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ is the most eco-friendly viscose being manufactured today. It uses a closed loop process that minimises waste, reducing carbon emissions, water and energy usage by up to 50%.
