MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Hessnatur had been making clothing and home textiles from natural fibers for over 45 years. Now, to make the most out of the natural resources it uses, the brand has begun its own textile-to-textile recycling program–starting from the cutting room floor. The BetterRecycled collection recycles its own organic cotton scraps left over from production into new fibers, ready to blend with virgin organic cotton to get the feel and quality desired.

Lenzing first created TENCEL™ Lyocell in Mobile, Alabama, in 1992. Over the past three decades, the use of this fiber has expanded and varied according to its customers’ wants and needs. Today, it still forms the basis for all of the most popular varieties of TENCEL™ on the market.

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Bemberg™ is the brand name of the world’s only cupro fiber, which is manufactured by Asahi Kasei in Nobeoka, Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan. With its beautiful luster and smooth silky texture together with functional properties of moisture absorption/release and feeling cool to the touch, it is used around the world in various applications such as linings, ethnic garments, outerwear, and innerwear. Being made from cotton linter, a by-product of cottonseed oil production, as well as being biodegradable and compostable for circularity, Bemberg™ is an environmentally friendly material.
