Learn More About Tencel
Basics of Tencel:
Tencel is a cellulosic fiber deriving from Forest Stewardship Council approved 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:
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.
Tencel was created with color in mind, because of the fibers’ high absorbency. The fabrics can be dyed to high quality standards.
This eco fabric has natural breathability and 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton.
Due to its moisture management, Tencel is also anti-bacterial.
Feel of Fabric
Similar to cotton in feel while maintaining a silky drape.
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.
