GREEN collection is borne out of the hope to create a soft, easy care material that incorporates sustainable fibre, with natural dye technology.
The key material of the GREEN collection is Tencel® lyocell. The fibre is generated from the bark of eucalyptus tree in a closed loop production process by the reputed Austrian company Lenzing, known for the conservation efforts.
A small percentage of ROICA recycled elastane is then added during the knitting of the fabric in Wakayama prefecture in Japan, giving a soft stretch to the fabric.
The natural lyocell yarn is infused with colour using natural dye stuff generated from Black Mallow flowers (for the grey) and Gardenia seeds (for the green).
To ensure high quality sewing and to support local manufacturing, the materials are then sent to small factories in Toyama (north of Japan) and in Sasebo (south of Japan) for sewing.
Due to the all natural nature of our Green collection we recommend machine wash and dry with a washing/dryer bag to retain its natural smoothness.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are naturally soft to the touch and offer long-lasting comfort. When viewed under an electron microscope, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers exhibit a smooth surface area, giving fabrics a soft feel and ensuring comfort for sensitive skin.
Derived from natural material, the microscopic fibrils of lyocell cellulosic fibers are structured to regulate the absorption and release of moisture. This contributes to breathable fabrics, creating a refreshingly cooling sensation on your skin
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained a commendable reputation for their environmentally responsible closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%.
Derived from nature, all standard TENCEL™ Lyocell fiber types have been certified by the Belgian certification company Vinçotte as biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature
