Tencel, the textile specialty fibre brand under Lenzing, has partnered with India-based textile and garment major Arvind to launch a collection of trendy, stylish sustainable shirts and suiting for men. The partnership marks a key milestone in the sustainability journey of Tencel fibres that brings a good range for the menswear segment.

Quarantine clothing goes green with the perfect balance of comfort and performance. Made using superior fabrics consisting of Tencel branded fibres, The Arvind x Tencel collection allows customers to make a conscious choice and give back to the environment.

"The current scenario has increased the focus on outfits which keep you comfortable through the day and this collection helps provide a good solution. The collection has been created with the utmost care and an eye for detail, allowing it to be worn across the year. It’s light, soft, biodegradable and it consumes less water and syncs well with trends and style. Features in workwear like softness and breathability which have been a key parameter for womenswear are now equally important for men as well, this is one of the key benefit male consumers can expect out of this range," the release said.

It is encouraging to see that Arvind shares this value and is setting out to positively influence the community,” said Avinash Mane, commercial head-South Asia, Lenzing AG.
