Tencel is part of the Lyocell family and one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics available. Tencel is regenerated from sustainably-grown wood cellulose and all of the chemicals used in its production are non-toxic. The cellulose is treated in a closed-loop system, which means no waste is produced and the solvents are recycled with a recovery rate of 99.5%.
The plant in which Tencel is produced is run on 100% recovered energy from solid waste.
Tencel is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen, making it perfect for travel. It is an exceptionally soft fabric, with a smooth and cool feeling against the skin.
One of Tencel's other outstanding qualities is its ability to enhance breathability. The smooth surface of the fibre absorbs and releases moisture efficiently, supporting the body's natural thermal regulation.
Tencel will also completely biodegrade in six weeks when composed correctly, so that any fabric scraps are decomposed naturally.
