During the last edition of Kingpins New York, Lenzing, a worldwide leader in the production of cellulose fibers, has launched Tencel 24: Day into Night, a new chambray indigo fiber mostly aimed at women’s apparel.

Tricia Carey, director of business development for denim commented: "The Tencel 24: Day into Night collection is a conscious effort to show that adopting new environmentally responsible laundry techniques does not mean sacrificing aesthetic excellence. This new development has taken Tencel chambray to another level.” For finishing chambray indigo fabrics employing this new Tencel fiber, Lenzing partnered with Jeanologia, a global leader in sustainable garment finishing technologies.

"The true beauty of these special chambray fabrics goes well beyond the surface," says Enrique Silla, Jeanologia co-founder. "Years of innovation have gone into producing both the fiber and the finishing technologies. It is 20 years since we first worked with Tencel fibers and this collection has surpassed anything we have previously produced."

The Tencel 24: Day into Night collection uses complementary fiber blends across five fabrics made out of Tencel fibers. Bases provided by Artistic Fabric Mill in Pakistan and Korat in Turkey. The collection showcases a versatile flow of garment styles from bottoms into tops, casual into formal, and day into night.
