Tencel® and Modal® are eco-friendly fabrics which are lightweight, durable and comfortable. Tencel is actually a brand renowned for its eco-friendly Tencel Lyocell and Tencel Modal fabrics. Tencel Lyocell is made from wood pulp extracted from the Eucalyptus tree while Modal is made from beechwood, imbuing both fabrics with their respective, unique properties.
Tencel fibres are naturally antimicrobial and moisture-wicking, and help regulate body temperature so you feel cooler for longer in the summer. They’re rayon-type soft fibre which can be naturally blended with other fabrics to create more durable, robust clothing.
Tencel Lyocell is a soft fabric that is strong and moisture absorbing. It can be blended with materials like cotton, polyester, wool, acrylic, and silk to enhance both the ability and styling of those fabrics. Tencel Modal is similarly versatile with an especially soft low-fibre rigidity for high comfort and high flexibility. Both Tencel Lyocell and Modal are environmentally friendly and biodegradable, Tencel being awarded the European Award for the Environment’ by the EU for its incredibly low emissions where a spectacular 99.8% of solvents were recycled over and over again, making the process very eco-friendly.
The production process is extremely efficient and sustainable, using materials that all come from renewable, ethical sources in Austria and the rest of Europe using carefully-chosen, sustainable land under Forest Stewardship Council certified companies.
