Natural & Sustainable
TENCEL® is the lyocell fiber from the house of Lenzing. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely ecofriendly, due to the closed loop system. On the day that the fiber TENCEL® was invented, a new chapter was written in the history of fibers. Textiles of TENCEL® are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
Compared to the fiber surfaces of cotton and wool, it is clear that TENCEL® is much smoother and softer on the skin.
TENCEL® deals with moisture like no other. Compared to synthetic fibers, the optimum moisture transportation of TENCEL® is unique as well as Compared to cotton, TENCEL® absorbs the moisture in a controlled and regular manner. With TENCEL® a 50 % improvement in moisture management was measured.*
The unique closed loop process makes TENCEL® the fiber of the future since the solvent used is recycled by almost 100% in the closed loop process.
This special process received the "European Award for the Environment" from the European Union.
