Lenzing fibers help to improve the quality of life
In recent months, several patients with the skin disorder Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) have tested leggings, undergarments, pajamas, leggings, quilts and bed linens made of Tencel fibers and have found them to be comfortable and skin-friendly. Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a genetic disease which is currently incurable. The skin of EB patients is fragile like the wings of a butterfly. For this reason, coarse fibers, scratching seams, buttons, zippers and fibers which hardly or do not at all absorb sweat frequently lead to additional blisters and sores and increased itching. In contrast, Tencel fibers feature particularly good moisture management and thus support the nature temperature-regulating properties of the body.
The companies Mey and Hefel have provided garments and linens made of Lenzing fibers. Both companies are longstanding cooperation partners of the Lenzing Group and use lyocell and modal fibers for daywear, nightwear and beddings.
