After completing his Academic English education at the University of Western Australia, Fatih Cengiarslan returned to Turkey to study Online Journalism and Publication at Istanbul Aydin University, and took an eight months training on interactive media at the University of Technology in Lithuania - Kaunas. Cengiarslan then successfully completed the Faculty of Business Administration in Eskişehir Anadolu University. He started to work as a reporter in Referans Gazetesi after completing his internship at CNNTURK. 2 years later he established his own media for the textile industry under the Textilegence brand. Currently, Fatih has been managing Textilegence.com, Printing3D and NEFA PR Agency for 6 years.

Lenzing has announced that it will expand the carbon-zero TENCEL™ branded fibres it introduced to the market a year ago, with REFIBRA™ technology to meet the increasing industry demand for ‘circular fashion’ and carbon neutrality. Lenzing aims to strengthen its commitment to achieving net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050, offering the industry more sustainable material options from the beginning of the product life cycle with fibres included REFIBRA™ technology. The expansion, which is set to be available in September 2021, also aims to offer more innovative solutions for fashion brands to meet carbon reduction targets and consumers to enjoy sustainable products. 

REFIBRA technology uses cotton scraps in fibre production

Aiming to reduce its carbon emissions by 50 percent in 2030 and to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, Lenzing provides upcycling of cotton scraps from garment production into cotton pulp with REFIBRA technology. Cotton pulp is then added to sustainably sourced wood pulp to produce virgin TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres. 

JACK & JONES, one of the international leading denim brands and long-term partner of Lenzing, uses 38% carbon-zero TENCEL™ Lyocell fibre in its new denim series. In addition to its high environmental value, the new series offers features such as silky smoothness, enhanced breathability, higher strength and a gentle on the skin.
