Trees grow naturally in Austria, where Lenzing™ is based. They are a sustainable source of raw materials and reproduce by regeneration, meaning they reseed themselves.
The entire production chain uses Edelweiss technology. This is a symbiotic process where the pulp is processed in the same place as the threads.
When the tree has matured, the wood is chopped and the shavings are broken down into chips. Long threads are then created by forcing this crumb through spinning pumps with tiny holes, a bit like a shower head.
Fluffy cellulose is then extracted from the wood pulp, dissolved on the spot and made into threads.
They are then ready to be spun into soft, lightweight Ecovero™ fabric.
