What is TENCEL™?
Fibers and filaments used under the TENCEL™ brand are derived from certified and controlled sources following the stringent guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy.
Namely, TENCEL™ branded modal and lyocell fibers are produced via environmentally responsible production processes and are compostable and biodegradable, thus can fully revert back to nature.
Featuring botanic origin and biodegradable quality, TENCEL™ can enhance the breathability of fabrics and have a minimal static charge when used in fabrics. These fabrics are also gentle on skin with smooth, long-lasting softness, color vibrancy, and color retention features. They can be combined with a wide range of textile fibers to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of fabrics.
Sustainable brands like Organic Basics, ThinkingMu and Vitamin A use the material in their garments as it provides a high quality substitute to mainstream cotton, while being eco-friendly and respectful to the environment.
