Many of our customers are truly concerned about the impact that their products have on the environment. As a result, they insist that we offer a choice of fabrics that meet their sustainable ethics. And we are very happy to oblige!
By far, the most environmentally aware fabric we have managed to source so far is in our latest viscose range.
This new ECOVERO™ collection has elevated sustainable fabric ethics to a new level having been made from certified renewable wood pulp.
We are initially offering 4 different fabric bases, each carefully selected to meet the highest environmental standards in process and production from sustainably managed forests through to the final cloth.
It might have been derived from wood but the feel and look of this fabric is simply luxurious!
From its silky-smooth feel and liquid drape through to its strength and colour vibrancy this is a fabric that can easily grace the most exclusive collections on the runways of the world’s most prestigious fashion houses.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers support natural softness and drape.
Sustainable production methods
The remarkable technical breakthroughs in the production of this viscose is quite extraordinary. This truly is the most environmentally considerate fabric available that we can offer to you. From the recovery and reuse of solvents to the filtering of surplus water, every consideration has been given to sustainable production methods.
Lenzing was the first cellulosic fiber producer to set concrete scientifically verified Science Based Targets aiming for a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
The manufacturing process maximises the resources needed to make the fabric and minimises the waste that is created in its production. This process involves recovering and reusing 99% of the solvents and filtering surplus water before returning it to its original source.
By only using the resources needed to make this fabric there is less environmental impact.
The production of the fibres in our ECOVERO™ range has a remarkably low impact on the environment. Especially when compared to generic viscose and even more so with cotton and polyester fabrics.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers are made from wood, a natural and renewable raw material carefully sourced from responsibly managed forests. The wood taken from nature is purposefully balanced with forest growth rates, to ensure the continued availability of this valuable resource.
Uses up to 50% less water during the manufacturing process compared to generic viscose fibres. The water that is used is cleaned before returning it to its natural source.
Emits up to 50% less CO2 into the atmosphere compared to generic viscose fibres, helping to combat climate change.
No animal-derived substances are used when making these fabrics.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers can break down and compost at the end of their life cycle.

The processes involved in digital textile printing causes the original fabric to shrink. If you are printing scarves, the size of the finished product will be important to you. For example, if you have square artwork, you will be expecting your finished scarf to be square!
To get the printed fabric closer to the size you need, all fabric intended for scarves must go through an extra step to reshape it. Please allow extra time on your deadlines to allow for this process.
Let us introduce you to the …
The stenter is an enormous piece of machinery that has many uses, including coating our fabrics and reshaping scarf orders.
After travelling through a solution to soften the fabric, it then passes over a flat bed, gripped on the selvedge edges to pull it back into shape.
It’s a long and precise process that needs to be carefully monitored.
If you have selected to use our hemming service, we will check the stentered fabric for you before we begin to finish your scarves. If you are not using our service, it’s up to you to check the size BEFORE you cut out the individual scarves from the fabric length. We cannot re-size after your scarves have been cut out.
