How Country Road’s Sateen Jean Takes Comfort Up a Notch

Most consumers who don Country Road’s Sateen Jean have agreed that it fits like a second skin, designed with the right balance of stretch for comfort and ease of movement with high sustainability credentials.

Taking that comfort a step further, the Australian lifestyle brand has partnered with Lenzing to introduce TENCEL™ x REFIBRA™ Lyocell to the Sateen Jean, improving on the way the pants feel against the wearer’s skin, plus overall durability.

The collaboration marks the first time a major Australian retailer introduces denim apparel made with TENCEL™ x REFIBRA™ in a fabrication woven by Spanish mill Tejidos Royo.

Country Road believes this is the perfect pairing for its brand. Not only for the improvements it offers to the quality of its jeans, but also for the element of sustainability.
