Since it is June already, we have decided to talk about some causal Summer shirts this time. If you are familiar with ANDJOY, then you probably know the Copenhagen based NN07. They focus on producing sustainable clothing with minimal design. What’s more, they are willing to try different fabrics to make their clothes special.
The Summer shirts from NN07 are called Miyagi, which is designed for a hot Summer day and it has a relaxed fitting.
And this season, NN07 geared up the Miyagi Summer shirts with a mixture of linen and lyocell (70% and 30% respectively). Of course, linen is a popular fabric for Summer. But how much do you know about lyocell?
Lyocell is actually a high tech eco-friendly man made fiber. The wool pulp to produce lyocell is chosen from sustainable tree farms. They will then be processed in a closed-loop system with the use of nanotechnology. The system will dissolve all emission and waste.
Now you know how they are produced. But what’s so special about lyocell and why are they more expensive than other sustainable fabrics?
Like we have mentioned, the production process dissolve all waste and emission. Also, lyocell is 100% Biodegradable.
Lyocell is “breathable” and has 50% more moisture absorbent than cotton. The moisture management also makes it anti-bacterial.
As it has stronger absorbency, it is allowed to be dyed to a higher quality.
Since lyocell is made with nanotechnology, it is extremely soft and lightweight. However, it is also very durable at the same time. More than that, it’s wicking ability also makes it a good fabric for people with sensitive skin.
And NN07 has been working with a famous Lyocell producer – TENCEL. TENCEL is a leading lyocell producer in the field and they are famous for their quality and experience in combining lyocell with other fabrics (linen in the case of NN07 Miyagi Summer shirts). It will gives the clothes a long lasting softness, greater strength and gentleness to the skin.
Guess what! Our Seasonal Sale has started and you can get these quality lyocel Summer shirts at a discounted price!
