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™ fibers will favorably influence athleisure aesthetics with its highly saturated colors, sheen, and smooth handfeel.

01 / 010 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.

02 / 010 botanic origin

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

TENCEL™ Modal fibers are mainly manufactured from the renewable raw material beech wood, sourced from sustainable forests in Austria and neighboring countries.

back
03 / 010 biodegradable

All standard TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.

back
04 / 010 feels warm and dry

TENCEL™ Lyocell cellulose fibers absorb moisture more efficiently than cotton. This supports the body’s natural thermal regulating mechanism, keeping your skin feeling cool and dry throughout the day and night. Fabrics can also be engineered to provide warm and dry sensations on the skin.

back
05 / 010 unfavorable for bacterial growth

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers absorb moisture efficiently. In comparison to polyester and synthetics, and even to cotton, 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.

back
06 / 010 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
07 / 010 certified safe

The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification confirms that TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers have been tested for numerous regulated and non-regulated harmful substances and are therefore harmless for human health.

back
08 / 010 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.

back
09 / 010 sustainable production of lyocell fibers

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained a commendable reputation for their environmentally responsible, closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low environmental impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%. Consumers can have the assurance that their fashion choices are not contributing to an adverse impact on the environment.

back
010 / 010 environmentally sound production process for modal fibers

Numerous Lenzing innovations have been integrated in the production of TENCEL™ Modal fibers, to make the process environmentally sound. Lenzing strives to safeguard resources for future generations by the use of renewable energy and by the recovery of process chemicals.
