materials BEECHWOOD

This fiber is extracted from beechwood. The beech tree is quite unique and has grown in Europe for a very long time. Directly from beechwood forests, our fiber gives each garment a natural image.
This fiber is like the Edelweiss flower: made in Austria, pure and natural. Full integration at the Lenzing site in Austria makes it possible

to produce the fiber in an environmentally sound way due to the generation of excess energy and the recovery of component parts of the wood. Even pulp production is self-sufficient in terms of energy and is an important supplier of energy for the entire operation.

Modal Edelweiss®

Lenzing Modal®, a modal fiber from Lenzing, is like the Edelweiss flower: made in Austria, pure and natural. Full integration at the Lenzing site in Austria makes it possible to produce the fiber in an environmentally sound way due to the generation of excess energy and the recovery of component parts of the wood. Even pulp production at Lenzing is self-sufficient in terms of energy and is an important supplier of energy for the entire operation. Discover more ...

Organic Content Standard

The Organic Content Standard (OCS) relies on third-party verification to verify a final product contains the accurate amount of a given organically grown material. It does not address the use of chemicals or any social or environmental aspects of production beyond the integrity of the organic material. More information on Textileexchange.

OEKO-TEX ® Standard 100

The Organic Content Standard (OCS) relies on third-party verification to verify a final product contains the accurate amount of a given organically grown material. It does not address the use of chemicals or any social or environmental aspects of production beyond the integrity of the organic material. All RE-BELLO products in jersey bamboo, eucalyptus (Tencel) and beechwood (Modal Edelweiss) present this certificate. More information on Oeko-Tex.

ECO RANKING

It is a challenge to find the perfect fabric among all sustainable materials. Different fabrics have different advantages and disadvantages for the environment in all the various phases of the production process.
Bamboo, for example, even if presenting very high benefits in farming (high soil yield, low water consumption, etc.), is an artificial fiber which needs to be extracted.

On the other hand, cotton is a natural fiber but it presents the disadvantage of the low soil yield and the fact that it steals precious areas that could potentially be used for food farming.
Our aim is to further improve the selection of sustainable materials and to concentrate, where possible, on new and innovative materials with a particular focus on upcyling&recycling.
