Slideshow: Inside Kingpins Show New York

What better way to kick off the new year than with a denim show? The Lenzing Denim team was thrilled to participate in Kingpins Show New York, held from Jan. 11 to 12 at Basketball City at Pier 36.

At our own booth, we spotlighted how mills are using fiber innovations—including TENCEL™ Modal with Indigo Color technology, matte TENCEL™ and TENCEL™ x REFIBRA™. Customers also highly appreciated our “zero cotton” and “zero virgin cotton” applications that use materials like hemp, recycled cotton and TENCEL™. Additionally, we highlighted our Simple Pleasures collection that is all about joy.
