Spain-based spinner and fabric manufacturer Tejidos Royo and Austria-based cellulosic fiber
producer Lenzing Fibers have collaborated to develop the eco-friendly Hybridenim collection
featuring organic cotton and Lenzing’s Tencel® fiber. The companies report the first product in the
collection, E[DOS] denim, is comfortable to wear and easy to care for. The organic cotton and
Tencel blend provides moisture-management properties and a soft hand, can be laundered at a low
temperature, and needs less ironing than conventional denim.
According to the companies, the reduced amount of energy needed to care for the fabric, along
with the eco-friendly production of the Tencel fiber and denim fabric — with mind given to reduced
energy, water and chemical use — make for an eco-friendly finished product.
