Right from the start on the wrong track
Since the beginning of our product development, we have focused on special “textile fibers made of wood”, a high-quality component in our products that has been optimized for sustainability. The “fibers made of wood” from our partner Lenzing , which have become known under the TENCEL brand, have become a stroke of luck for us – and accordingly our product portfolio is constantly being expanded with this component. With this in mind, of course, we didn’t hesitate for a moment when Lenzing asked us to participate as part of their “Earth Month” campaign.
Sustainably optimized along the entire value chain
For us, ensuring the sustainability and quality of our materials from the raw material to the end product is Muntagnard’s central raison d’être. However, working up the textile value chain is extremely complex, demanding and time-consuming – a circumstance that repeatedly complicates and lengthens our development cycles for new products. Nevertheless, we spare no effort to take on this additional effort in order to meet our own requirements for transparency, sustainability and quality.
Experience the production of our textile fibers at the place of origin
Our day at the Lenzing production facility began with a brief introduction to the various production steps involved in fiber production. We really appreciated the fact that we were able to clarify our detailed questions about the sustainability of the award-winning production process directly in a friendly conversation with Peter Bartsch, Head of Sustainability. We are impressed by how Lenzing intends to further improve its current exemplary status with holistic sustainability initiatives. Then Doris Overrath introduced us to the different types of fiber available and other innovations. Andreas Gürtler rounded off the discussions with exciting current developments in the field of “Active Wear”.
LEGNA t-shirt returns to the origins
We were also pleased that our product, the LEGNA T-shirt, met with great interest within the Lenzing company. According to Sylvia Happel and Jutta Schörghuber, with whom we regularly exchange ideas as partners, the LEGNA T-shirt should be the only one made from 100% TENCEL Lyocell fibers: from the fabric to the details, such as the sewing thread or the washing labels.
A little tip for you: by using the hashtag #checkwhatsgood you can quickly find other brand partners who use TENCEL fibers. Of course, we can warmly recommend our LEGNA t-shirt. 😉
