feel freedom to move with confidence

TENCEL™ Active cellulosic fibers of botanic origin keep your body pleasantly cool and dry with their natural comfort and versatility, giving you freedom to move with confidence.

Derived from renewable wood sources using sustainable production processes, the TENCEL™ brand is a family of fibers well suited for sporting activities. TENCEL™ cellulosic fibers are naturally structured to manage the transportation of moisture. Submicroscopic canals between the microscopic fibrils of cellulose fibers regulate the absorption and release of moisture, which contribute to your performance of physical activity by keeping your body pleasantly cool and dry.

In addition to high performance sportswear, the qualities of TENCEL™ branded Lyocell and Modal fibers make them suitable for the growing athleisure category – designed for general wear and moderate exercise. TENCEL™ Athleisure will favorably influence athleisure aesthetics with its highly saturated colors, sheen, and smooth handfeel.

01 / 06 thermal regulation

The smooth fiber surface of TENCEL ™ Lyocell fibers absorbs moisture more efficiently than cotton. This supports the body’s natural thermal regulating mechanism, keeping your skin feeling pleasantly cool and dry throughout the day and night.

02 / 06 unfavorable for bacterial growth

TENCEL ™ Lyocell fibers absorb moisture efficiently. In comparison to polyester and synthetics, there is less available moisture formed on the surface of the fiber for bacteria to grow. Consequently, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers provide a less favorable environment for bacterial growth, offering better hygienic qualities to fabrics.

back
03 / 06 gentle on skin

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are naturally soft to the touch and offer long-lasting comfort. When viewed under an electron microscope, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers exhibit a smooth surface area, giving fabrics a soft feel and ensuring comfort for sensitive skin.

back
04 / 06 botanic origin

TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers are derived from sustainable wood sources – natural forests and sustainably managed plantations. Wood and pulp used by the Lenzing Group is harvested from certified and controlled sources.

05 / 06 color retention

Color pigments are deeply embedded into TENCEL™ Modal fibers, which retain long-lasting color vibrancy more than conventionally dyed fibers, and are less prone to fade even after repeated washing.

06 / 06 contributes to performance

TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers can be combined with other fibers to optimize the resulting fabric properties of sportswear for any sporting activity. As a component of sportswear, TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers sustain hydrophilic qualities over time (with a fiber surface that attracts water), making them a practical alternative to synthetic fibers.

Blending synthetic fibers with TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers results in high performance sportswear for athletic activities, which can generate high levels of perspiration. When used in the right fabric design, TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers offer a quick drying effect through efficient moisture absorption, resulting in enhanced breathability and thermal comfort.
