caring for ENKA® viscose

this fabric a bit delicate so take care - just make sure you wash it gently. not warmer than 30 degrees is just right. use a mild detergent and a delicate cycle. you can either use a wash bag or wash it by hand. the best thing about it - you can hang to dry and you won't have any wrinkles!

what is ENKA® viscose?

ENKA® Viscose filament yarn is based on the renewable raw material wood, which consists of 40 – 50 % cellulose – the most common organic and renewable plant material.

why love ENKA® viscose?

apart from being environmentally friendly (it is even biodegradable!) this fabric is a dream to wear. it is flowy, soft and breathable and was inspired by silk.

ENKA® viscose production

the filament yarn is produced in closed cycles in germany and poland. 

ENKA is exclusively sourcing FSC® certified cellulose, which fully originates from local, legal and sustainable forestation. Therefore, ENKA itself is FSC® certified and has developed its own Wood Pulp Procurement Policy in order to promote sustainable forest management and the protection of ancient and endangered forests. Within the framework of the CanopyStyle Initiative, ENKA was successfully audited as the first filament yarn producer (please find the full results of the CanopyStyle audit). ENKA® Viscose has received the Cradle to Cradle Product Innovation Institute's Gold level Material Health Certificate. Additionally, ENKA® Viscose has been selected as „responsible fiber“ according to the Fairtrade Textile Standard by nonprofit organization Fairtrade International. Therefore, ENKA® Viscose can be used in supply chains that are certified entirely under the terms of the Fairtrade Textile Standard.
