We believe in sustainability and protecting our planet. In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, we created our first collection with eco-friendly 100% Lyocell fabric from a top-quality textile supplier .
We aim to create collections with garments that are made of 100% natural fibers. We closely study materials before sourcing and select responsible textiles, which are proved by international standards and certificates.
Munna aims to create collections that promote natural, durable and sustainable fabrics. Premiering our first collection, Lyocell fabric was a winner.
AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE FIBRE
Lyocell is an eco-friendly fabric that provides exceptional comfort, while also being pretty great for the planet.
Lyocell is a fabric that has taken the sustainable fashion world by storm – and for good reason. Not only is it durable and comfy, but it’s also one of the most sustainable fabrics out there. It’s made using natural sources and doesn’t require toxic chemicals to produce.
ADVANTAGES OF LYOCELL
Good for you and great for the environment, natural fabrics can categorically have a positive impact on both.
Appropriate for sensitive skin
The wicking abilities of Lyocell materials keep the skin dry and the smooth fiber surface feels soft and supple against the skin. This makes lyocell fabrics great for sensitive skin.
Lyocell fabric has controllable fibrillation (the very fine fibrils or hairs found on the external surface of fiber strands) this means it can be arranged in various ways from a silky smooth finish to a suede-like softness.
Lyocell’s hydrophilic quality makes it more effective at keeping the body cool during sleep in a wide variety of climates. It is extremely breathable, because all night long, sweat is absorbed by the body.This makes Lyocell fabric a perfect choice for people with sweating issues, or for people with sensitive skin aggravated by moisture.
Lyocell is said to be anti-bacterial because of its moisture management property. Lyocell is composed of very small hydrophilic fibres, literally “water lovers”. This means that it absorbs moisture from the skin.
Lyocell fibers are smooth, strong and resistant. Lyocell wrinkles less than cotton and is fairly easy to maintain. It is easy to wash, Lyocell clothing is less likely to shrink or deform when washed. In addition, it is very resistant and does not tend to lose weight over time.
WHY IS LYOCELL ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY?
Lyocell is a sustainable fabric because it is made from wood, most commonly, from eucalyptus, bamboo trees, therefore that means is biodegradable and compostable. Unlike other types of similar fabrics, lyocell is made using a “closed loop” process which means that the chemicals used in production do not get released into the environment.
The production of lyocell produces no harmful byproducts and the main ingredient, cellulose, is easily gotten from managed tree farms. The farming of trees to produce lyocell materials does not require irrigation or pesticides.
When compared to the manufacture of other cellulose fibers, lyocell production is significantly less toxic and wasteful. The production of lyocell is short. It takes about two and a half hour from chopping the wood down to the carding. Thus, compared to the production of other manmade fibers it uses less water and energy.
These properties of the lyocell material have made it a star in the realm of fashion and textile industry.
