As the fashion industry began to grow, brands and retailers were dependent mainly on two types of fabrics.

One, resource-intense natural fabrics like cotton.

Second, petroleum-based synthetic fabrics like viscose, polyester, and nylon.

The demand for both materials is high.

But as time went on, we are now seeing the irreversible damage these production practices have created on our environment.

This impact has forced companies to look for alternatives.

Moreover, for fabrics that are more sustainable and friendly for the environment.

In this article, we will look at a more sustainable alternative for viscose. EcoVero by Lenzing.


What is EcoVero?

EcoVero is a sustainable alternative to viscose that is made by the Austrian company Lenzing.

Lenzing is the same company that brought us Modal, Tencel, Lyocell. They bring innovative products made from regenerative cellulose.

Viscose was the earliest favorite fabric that was creating a lot of ecological problems.

It is loved because of its properties like softness, silky and luxurious effects. Lenzing innovated on its manufacturing process to produce Modal and Ecovera. In this article, we have discussed the entire process of manufacturing Modal, which is an alternative to Viscose.

It mostly involves cellulose extracted from wood pulp and it is produced by an irrigation intense, monoculture agriculture process.

Eucalyptus and Bamboo are mostly used.

Furthermore, the second phase of the manufacturing process includes highly toxic chemicals like carbon disulfate.

It is reported that numerous people working at factories have been affected by this. It is also a water-intensive process.

The result is a highly impactful harmful fiber.

“This is about as dirty as it gets. We can’t possibly justify using fabrics like viscose. It is becoming increasingly important to know where the products come from and which path they covered.” – Christian Brandt, COO – Armedangels.


How EcoVera is made?

EcoVero is made using sustainable wood from controlled sources which are either FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) certified in Europe. They replace the traditional Bamboo and Eucalyptus wood pulp that is commonly used worldwide.

EcoVero Process

Wood from sustainable forestry: As we discussed in the above paragraph, cellulose is extracted from sustainability-certified resources.

Eco-responsible processes: Nearly all the chemicals used during the production of EcoVero are recovered and reused.

Less water in the process: EcoVero takes up half the amount of water when compared to viscose. The pulp bleaching process is 100% chlorine-free.

Less energy in the process: Compared to conventional viscose production, EcoVero uses half the amount of energy as well.

Ecological dyes: Eco-friendly dyes are also used in the manufacturing process to further decrease the environmental impact.


What are the benefits of EcoVero Fabrics?

EcoVero is often compared to silk and cotton for their similar qualities.

  • Natural and renewable
  • Sustainable
  • Biodegradable
  • Gentle on the skin
  • 50% lower emissions and water impact
