feel the gentle essence of nature

TENCEL ™ Home cellulosic fibers offer you long-lasting natural comfort and pure living environments. TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers are naturally gentle on skin with an exquisitely soft handfeel, bringing the gentle essence of nature into your home. Their versatility makes them suitable for a wide range of home applications, from carpets and upholstery to luxurious bedding.

Bedding: bed linens, bed mattresses & filled products

With an exquisitely silky handfeel and natural sheen, luxurious bed linens made of TENCEL™ Lyocell enhance your quality of sleep. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers exhibit a smooth surface area, ensuring natural comfort for sensitive skin.

Compared to other filling materials for duvets, such as cotton, the smooth fiber surface of TENCEL™ Lyocell cellulose fibers absorb moisture more efficiently. This supports the body’s natural thermal regulating properties, to help your body feel pleasantly cool and dry.

Interiors: Carpets & Upholstery

Displaying a luxurious sheen and silky surface, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers make carpets and upholstery shine radiantly with vibrant colors.

Towels

Soft on your skin, TENCEL™ Modal fibers have efficient moisture absorption, enabling towels to dry quickly. In comparison to cotton, TENCEL™ Modal fibers remain soft over time and are able to withstand repeated wash and dry cycles, allowing fabrics to retain their softness.

0004 Botanic Origin

botanic origin

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are derived from sustainable wood sources, harvested from certified and controlled sources following the stringent guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy. These fibers are also available with FSC®(C041246) or PEFC™ certification upon request. Moreover, wood and pulp used by the Lenzing Group comes from sustainably managed forests. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have been certified as Biobased under the BioPreferred® Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a governmental body. TENCEL™ Modal fibers are mainly manufactured from beech wood, sourced from sustainable forests in Austria and neighboring countries. Beech wood forests are a natural and renewable source of raw material. A big share of the wood used at the Lenzing site comes from Austria, harvested from certified and controlled sources following the stringent guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy. These fibers are also available with FSC®(C041246) or PEFC™ certification upon request. TENCEL™ Modal fibers have been certified as Biobased under the BioPreferred® Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a governmental body.

0005 Color Retention

color retention (Eco Color technology)

Color pigments embedded in dope-dyed TENCEL™ Modal fibers retain long-lasting color vibrancy better than conventionally dyed fiber, and are less prone to fade even after repeated washing.

0009 Gentle On Skin

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.

0010 Long Lasting Softness

long-lasting Softness (Eco Soft technology)

Exquisite softness derives from fine fibers, creating softer textiles. TENCEL™ Modal fibers exhibit a smooth surface and high flexibility, resulting in a naturally soft quality of the textile. (Evidence: Electron microscope - smooth surface and Bending Rigidity Measurement test - high flexibility) The softness of Modal fiber is confirmed by a variety of physical test methods, including Kawabata, TSA, Handle-o-meter, and Phabro-meter: -Measurements and hand evaluations of softness show that TENCEL™ Modal fibers are twice as soft as cotton. -The softness of TENCEL™ Modal fibers lasts longer and is able to withstand repeated wash and dry cycles compared to cotton. (Tested Fabric: Single jersey N/50/1, 120 g/m2, test method: Ring pull-through and TSA.) -LENZING™ Modal Micro Air is Lenzing’s finest and lightest wood-based fiber. -The degrees of softness of LENZING™ Modal , Modal Micro and Modal Micro Air can be measured by various handfeel assessment as well physical test methods such as the Tissue Softness Analyzer, Phabro-meter and Ring pull-through.

0008 Moisture Management

moisture management / thermal regulation

TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers support body temperature regulating properties through their moisture management. Derived from natural material, the microscopic fibrils of cellulosic fibers are structured to regulate the absorption and release of moisture, contributing to fabric breathability that supports the body’s natural thermal regulation. Fabrics can also be engineered to provide warm and dry sensations on the skin, as evidenced by the skin sensory Alambeta test that shows that TENCEL™ emerized creates a warming effect comparable to cotton flannel.

0014 Sustainable Production

sustainable production of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained the reputation for their environmentally responsible, closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%. This economically viable manufacturing process received the European Award for the Environment from the European Commission in the category “The Technology Award for Sustainable Development” (2000). TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have been certified as Biobased by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Moreover, all Lenzing fiber production sites operate according to a certified Environmental Management and Occupational Health and Safety system (ISO14001, OHSAS 18001).
