Koni teams with Lenzing for eco-friendly hotel textiles 

San Diego – Koni Corp. is poised to unveil a new line of designer hospitality products using Lenzing Fibers ’ Modal and Tencel at the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show next month.

Koni fabrics made from Modal and Tencel will feature in the new line of bedding, drapery, bath and spa products.
