TENCEL™ is softer than silk, more absorbent than cotton, cooler than linen, and naturally antibacterial.
TENCEL™ is derived from wood fibers sourced from sustainable forest plantations on lands not suitable for agriculture. The wood is processed into fiber in a closed loop system that contains and reuses solvents at a rate of nearly 100%. This production process received the "European Award for the Environment" from the European Union.
TENCEL™ is completely biodegradable, quickly breaking down within 80 days. The production of TENCEL™ also consumes less water—between 10-20 times less than conventional cotton.
Softer than Silk
TENCEL™ fibers have an ultra smooth surface. This makes fabrics made from TENCEL™ softer, and perfect for people with sensitive skin.
