TENCEL is a gorgeous fabric that represents the incredible modern developments of environmentally sustainable textiles and the driving consumer desire for eco-friendly fashion. It combines all the breathability and comfort of natural fibres, with the heightened strength and quick-drying nature of man-made fabrics. The look is luxurious and refined, with a natural fluid drape.
Made with wood pulp from sustainable tree farms, this yarn is created with an amine oxide solvent that is non-toxic and recycled during the production cycle. The end result is a fabric that is fully 100% biodegradable. Everything we wished for!
TENCEL offers the advantages of high colour retention, natural breathability and advanced moisture absorption (perfect for people with sensitive skin!), anti-bacterial properties, delicate drape, and a lightweight texture that is resistant to wrinkles (a travellers dream!).

TENCEL is the trade name for the generic fibre Lyocell. To qualify for this elite branding the lyocell is obtained from traceable and sustainable wood pulp which is farms certified by the Forest Stewardship Council – FSC. It is created using only non-toxic organic solvent that has been recovered and reused to a 99.5% efficiency rate.
