What is it?
Tencel® is a strong sustainable fibre made from tree pulp.
How does it work?
Tencel is biodegradable and comes from the pulp of the Eucalyptus tree; a sustainable resource that can be grown quickly without the need for irrigation, pesticides or fertilizers.
The trees used to make Tencel are sustainably grown and turned into fibre in a 'closed loop' process that uses up to twenty times less water than cotton production.
What’s it good for?
Tencel is extremely strong and can be used to improve the durability of a garment without the need for man-made fibres like polyester. Tencel is gentle on your skin and has the ability to absorb sweat 50% quicker than cotton, helping to regulate your body temperature during sport. It can also stay odour-free for multiple wears thanks to its natural antibacterial qualities, reducing the overall energy and water consumption of the garment from repeated washing. This makes it great fabric for active and outdoor clothing.
