Lenzing has partnered with the founder of Concept III, David Parkes, to create Tree Climate, the first major collection of outdoor performance fabrics to feature Tencel-branded Lyocell fibers. The Tree Climate collection was presented at the Functional Fabric Fair in Portland, Oregon, on Oct. 22-23, at both Lenzing's and Concept III's booths. Parkes and Lenzing are working with several mills to design and produce the Tree Climate fabrics, including the Beverly Knits and Brookwood Mills in North America as well as mill partners from the Far East, Lenzing said. The Tree Climate garments have been designed by Christie Orlando, the design consultant who has collaborated with brands like Six:02 for Foot Locker, G. Sport by Gwyneth Paltrow and others.
