VISETA® gives a soft and dry feeling with a luxurious silk-like drape. Perfect for elegant, yet natural garments. Made in Germany.

What is Viscose?

Our viscose fibres are made of natural cellulose, which is obtained from wood, a renewable raw material. In an industrial process, we transform this cellulose into fibre form - as viscose fibres. Our process allows us to individually customize the properties of the fibres - from their length and shape to their functionality - to best suit the specific requirements of our customers' end products. Our specially tailored viscose fibres offer numerous benefits, including providing exceptional softness and comfort in clothing. By serving as a sustainable alternative to synthetic fibres and disposable plastics, our viscose fibres contribute to a healthy and eco-friendly lifestyle.

  • VISETA® is made of FSC® or PEFC certified wood pulp. The FSC® and PEFC seals guarantee that only wood from sustainably managed plantations is used.

  • VISETA® is 100% biodegradable, and has been proven to decompsose completely in a few days

  • VISETA® is certified according to the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 class 1. This guarantees that VISETA® contains no toxic substances and is suitable for baby products.

  • VISETA® is certified as a bio-based product by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), which confirms the product is comprised of minimum 97% organic material.

VISETA® - A Gentle Touch of Nature

Beyond the boundaries of nature - but still natural. For more than 5,000 years, silk was the finest fibre available - until man-made fibres were invented. VISETA® is a cellulosic textile fibre, engineered to go beyond what is possible in nature, and is even finer than silk. This delivers unparalleled comfort from a fibre of natural origin. VISETA® closes the gap between the advance of technology and ecological consciousness.

VISETA® - A Fine and Luxurious Fibre

Around three times more VISETA® fibres than cotton fibre go to make up a yarn with the same thickness. This reduces the stiffness of the yarn and delivers additional softness and creates a smoother yarn surface. The result: a luxurious fine and dry touch. The increased fibre surface area also improves the capillary action and the moisture-wicking effect of the garment.
