Tencel

A new chapter in fabric history was written the day Tencel fiber was invented and created the future of sustainable fabric. Cooler than linen, softer than silk and more absorbent than cotton.

Lenzing AG, globally leading producer of wood-based cellulose fibers stands for a responsible approach to nature. TENCEL® branded lyocell fibers from the house of Lenzing are of botanic origin, extracted from the raw material wood from the core to the bark using 100% of the natural resource wood.

Bacteria do not stand a chance with TENCEL® branded lyocell fibers. The perfect moisture management of these cellulosic fibers are responsible for the reduced bacteria growth.

Lenzing has achieved another milestone in its innovation heritage in the textile industry by developing a new fiber based on cotton scraps and wood - RefibraTM fiber. Making it the first cellulose fiber featuring recycled material on a commercial scale.

For the brand, developing circular business models in the fashion industry ensures the decoupling of business growth from pressure on ecological resource consumption. It reduces the need to extract additional virgin resources from nature, and reduces the net impact on ecological resources.

Smartwater

Glacéau smartwater is a premium bottled water offered by The Coca-Cola Company. smartwater is the #1 premium bottled water brand in the USA. Where other products in the premium bottled water market look to ground water sources like springs or rivers, smartwater is different by design, inspired by the clouds to ensure its crisp purity.

smartwater’s ethos of combining style and substance is exemplified through the unique process that is inspired by nature’s way of making the purest water: the hydrologic cycle. Water is vapour distilled for purity, and then it is infused with a precisely calculated blend of electrolytes (calcium, magnesium & potassium). This production process ensures that smartwater stays pure and retains its clean, crisp taste.

The style comes from its iconic, svelte bottle and by the fact that smartwater is globally represented by its brand ambassador, film and TV star Jennifer Aniston. The actress has been the smartwater brand ambassador since 2007, and has now made her first appearance in the Indian market by serving as the face of smartwater across the subcontinent.

A dream to create an avant-garde range of hand bags and accessories that manifest the high-fashion culture. To be adorned by today's urban woman who reflects the tomorrows. With a confident aesthetic sense, sleek cuts and an indulgent voice to suit any occasion - Caprese’s every design is crafted as a style testament to every woman who wishes to announce her arrival in life.
