The introduction of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibers marks a new milestone in Lenzing’s journey toward sustainability.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose fibers provide assurance that your fashion choices are environmentally responsible and have a low environmental impact.
In a world of limited natural resources, environmental sustainability necessitates taking less—using only the resources we require and utilizing them as efficiently as possible. When compared to generic viscose, the production of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ has a significantly smaller environmental footprint.
When we must take from nature, we strive to return it responsibly, as we do with water. Furthermore, as cellulosic materials, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers are biodegradable and naturally return to nature after disposal, as certified by TÜV AUSTRIA for industrial, home, soil, freshwater, and marine conditions*.
*Tests were done on LENZING™ Viscose standard fibers.
Production of Viscose Fiber for a Sustainable Lifestyle
Consumers today are increasingly demanding more environmentally friendly fashion options. We follow the maxim “take less, give more” when producing our eco-friendly viscose fibers, which is based on the twin foundations of respect for nature and respect for our customers. To achieve excellent sustainability figures, we strive to help build a cleaner and greener world by taking less from the environment, maximizing resource efficiency, and minimizing waste in the manufacturing process.
Environmentally Responsible Manufacturing
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose fibers are made from certified and controlled sources of sustainable wood and pulp. The EU Ecolabel for textile products has certified LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers as meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle: from raw material extraction to production, distribution, and disposal. LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers can be clearly identified in the finished product, ensuring that you are purchasing genuine LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose fibers.
Lenzing’s viscose production wood sourcing policies are audited annually for their contribution to forest conservation, transparency, and commitment to sustainability.
Lower emissions and water impact by up to 50% compared to generic viscose
When compared to generic viscose, the manufacturing of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibers produces up to 50% fewer emissions and water impact. CO2 emissions and fossil resource use are roughly half that of the industry average.
Sourcing and Procurement of Sustainable Wood and Pulp
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibers are made from pulp derived from the renewable resource wood as a raw material. Lenzing sources wood from sustainably managed forests.
Canopy, a Canadian non-profit organization, named Lenzing as one of the best performing viscose producers in the world for its sustainable wood and pulp sourcing practices. Lenzing was ranked in the high “dark green shirt” category, indicating that when using LENZING™ fibers, there is a very low risk of sourcing wood from ancient and endangered forests.

We stock EcoVero™ Satin and Twill fabrics for digital printing, which are both made of 35% silk and 65% EcoVero™. These fabrics are extremely light and pleasant to the touch, with a very special silky sheen. Ideal for luxurious clothing, scarves, and cushions.
Tencel™’s smooth surface is ideal for printing, in our opinion. Colors penetrate deeply into the fiber structure, resulting in stunning color brilliance. Tencel™ garments and products are less likely to fade, remaining as good as new even after repeated washing.
Tencel™, like EcoVero™, is completely biodegradable – they are truly the most eco-friendly fabrics available.
