While CIRCULOSE Viscose is a cellulose fiber made from discarded textiles, such as old jeans and wood, TENCEL Lyocell with REFIBRA technology is a cellulose fiber derived from recycled cotton residues and wood, according to a press release. When these textiles are used with recycled cotton, the resulting fabrics are not only durable but also extremely comfortable – even more so than pure cotton.
Sweden-based H&M has unveiled a limited-edition denim collection that suits circular fashion. The range is the first jeans collection for men made from eco-friendly fabrics using CIRCULOSE Viscose and TENCEL Lyocell with REFIBRA technology. In a circular way, products are designed to not only last longer, but also to be recyclable and biodegradable.
The eight-piece capsule takes after the denim culture of the Far East and classic American workwear. The collection features four pairs of five-pocket jeans in a loose fit, two oversized button-down shirts, an oversized workwear jacket and a zip-up jacket, all in muted indigo tones with a clean stonewashed finish.
The capsule collection is available in selected H&M stores and on their official website.
