Our environmentally sustainable fabrics
For our own well-being and that of our planet, we have chosen to use only fibers that are entirely environmentally friendly, created from renewable raw materials and 100% biodegradable. Clothing made from natural and environmentally sustainable fabrics made by CASAGiN consists of materials that are incredibly soft, breathable and gentle on the skin, but also sustainable for the environment. Derived from eucalyptus from beech wood, organic cotton and regenerated plastics, they are projects created to encourage low environmental impact in the cultivation of materials and the use of renewable resources.
The beech fibre fabric is 100% natural
Particularly resistant to pests, the beech tree reproduces through the process of 'rejuvenation', so the forest stock is automatically extended. Irrigation or artificial cultivation are not necessary because forests are a natural and permanent source of raw materials.
Austria is home to the entire production process for this yarn, from pulp to fibre. This means that production is neutral and environmental impact is minimised. The result is the fabric TENCEL™ Modal.
Designed to last
How it used to be done
Every aspect of beech wood can be used. In addition to cellulose, other valuable materials are extracted (acetic acid used for food production, xylose, the basis for sweetener production, sodium sulphate used for glass production). The rest of the wood is used thermally in processing plants, contributing significantly to energy production.
The benefits are obvious, not only for the environment but also for the skin. Beech not only gives fabrics a soft appearance, but also greater strength than traditional cotton. When washed in hard water, it does not retain minerals such as limescale and shrinks and fades much less than cotton. This fibre has 50% more absorbency than cotton, leaving your skin dry and cool. Wear our garments in beech fibre will be like wearing a bit of nature on your skin.
Our environmental impact
Every choice makes a difference
The fibres TENCEL™ Modal help maintain environmental balance through circular production, where 99% of the synthetic products used are recovered. These fibres come from wood that has not been treated with fertilisers and pesticides, are derived from renewable sources and are certified as compostable and biodegradable.
To give an idea of the low environmental impact of this material we have analyzed the consumption needed to produce 250 grams of conventional cotton fiber with traditional practices and 250 grams of TENCEL™ Modal fiber with innovative practices. By comparing the data it is possible to notice how even one garment in TENCEL™ Modal can contribute significantly to a saving in terms of natural resources such as water, CO2 and soil.
