Learn More About Tencel

Basics of Tencel:


Tencel is a cellulosic fiber deriving from wood pulp to define a new standard of sustainable textiles. Tencel fibers are known for their natural comfort, luxuriously soft handfeel, and environmentally responsible closed loop production process which recovers 99% of its use of solvent and water.


Benefits of Tencel:

  • Eco Print
    Made from the natural cellulose found in wood pulp. The fiber is economical in its use of energy and natural resources, and is fully biodegradable.
  • Color Rich
    Tencel was created with color in mind, because of the fibers’ high absorbency. The fabrics can be dyed to high quality standards.
  • Moisture Absorbent
    This eco fabric has natural breathability and 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton.
  • Anti-bacterial
    Due to its moisture management, Tencel is also anti-bacterial.
  • Feel of Fabric
    Similar to cotton in feel. Soft, natural, and comfortable. Tencel has an extremely smooth, soft surface.
  • Great for sensitive skin
    Tencel’s smooth fiber surface feels soft and supple against the skin and its incredible wicking abilities keep the skin dry, making Tencel a great fabric for sensitive skin.
  • Durable
    This super fiber can hold up to a beating when both wet and dry, and is most conveniently resistant to wrinkles.
