Combining the BEST of both worlds = (TENCEL) + (dualFX) in ONE DENIM

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

In recent years, we had successfully developed dualFX denim in conjunction with INVISTA (LYCRA). This new stretch technology is superb in performance  with the highest stretch recovery in the industry. Thus, ultimately eliminating the need for ladies to continuously hike up their skinny jeans and say good-bye to  saggy knees.

What was the one element we could add to make this an even greater product? Enter : Lenzing’s TENCEL–having followed our instincts to combine dual FX’s unsurpassed stretch recovery with the great handfeel and durability of Lenzing’s TENCEL. In addition, we also value TENCEL’s eco-friendly components. This duality results in a significant improvement in the fabric’s ecological compatibility because TENCEL is made from wood grown in sustainably managed forests.  Recently, TENCEL fibers have been reinvented to compliment the current denim fashion trends because of the fiber’s smooth surface and optimal moisture management.

Lenzing and Invista recently publicized its mission to improve the way their two fibers combine in denim for the ultimate performance and feel.

The Lenzing Group, world market leader for man-made cellulosics (TENCEL, Lenzing MODAL, Lenzing Viscose) and INVISTA, owner of the LYCRA fiber brand, are working together to bring improved aesthetic performance to stretch fabrics.  By combining Lenzing’s TENCEL fiber with INVISTA’s patented LYCRA dual FX fabric technology, the two companies offer the industry a unique solution i.e. cellulosic denim fabrics featuring significantly improved shape retention.

Superior comfort together with stretch and long-lasting recovery rank among the key criteria in women’s fashion’, says Michael Kininmonth, Senior Project Manager for Denim at the Lenzing Group. “The success of this cooperation shows that two globally innovative fiber companies can bundle their competencies to supply the denim market with fabrics which meet the performance needs of modern consumers,’ he adds.”

Supporting FIDMs effort in BLUE JEANS GO GREEN; Cotton Inc.’s Denim Recycling Program

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

blue-jeans-go-greenLos Angeles, CA (December 11, 2013) –  Twin Dragon is very proud to have participated in Cotton Inc’s Blue Jeans Go Green Recycling Program for the first time this past November.  All denim collected through the Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program is recycled into UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation, and a portion of it, up to 250,000 square feet is distributed to Habitat for Humanity affiliates and civic buildings around the country.

The program partners with many colleges across the US, including a local fashion school, FIDM (The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising), having alumnus employees, the company was more than willing to support their effort.  Participating in this program falls in line with our passion for eco-friendly green initiatives as present in our product and operations.  As first year participants, Twin Dragon collected over 7,500 lbs of denim (every 1.5 lbs of denim = 1 pair of jeans).  To date, including our donation this year, Cotton Inc.’s program has been able to divert over 600 tons of denim from landfills!

“Twin Dragon was a HUGE help to us this year. Last year our total count was 6,338 and this year it was 11,921.  Our major denim partners this year were Twin Dragon and True Religion with smaller donations from Guess Jeans and Genetic Denim. Conclusively, FIDM (all 4 campuses) was the overall winner.  We had a higher number of donations above Texas Tech and University of Kentucky. We had over 14,000 pairs for all four FIDM campuses.” — said Mary Brannon, Apparel Technology Coordinator at FIDM.

Twin Dragon’s continued commitment to eco-friendly initiatives grows annually.  The company has  all the intentions to continue to donate even more on FIDM’s behalf  to this wonderful program in the future years. Happy Recycling & Go Green!
