Luxe

feel the touch of conscious luxury

As a step-change in wood-based cellulosic fiber technology, TENCEL™ Luxe introduces eco botanic filaments, derived from the renewable resource wood at a commercial scale, with sustainability at its core based on an environmentally sound closed loop process.

The filament is derived from sustainable wood sources following the stringent guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy. Lenzing is committed to sourcing wood from non-controversial sources and strives to protect ancient and endangered forests as well as high conservation value areas.

0004 Botanic Origin

botanic origin

0012 Smoothness

silky smoothness

When viewed under an electron microscope, LENZING™ Lyocell Filament exhibits a sleek surface area, giving fabrics a silky smooth handfeel, as evidenced by both the TSA / Tissue Softness Analyzer test for smoothness and Handle-o-meter.

0002 Drape

liquid like drape

Soft to the touch, TENCEL™ Luxe Lyocell filaments produce lightweight fabrics. A smooth, liquid-like drape enables extravagant fluid forms to be achieved, creating a flattering appearance. Lyocell (1.5g/cm3) weighs more than that of silk (1.33g/cm3) and can therefore can produce a better drape effect.

0003 Color Vibrancy

color vibrancy

The color dyes are chemically bound and effciently penetrates deeply into the fiber structure to offer long-lasting color fastness. By contrast, silk is a protein fiber, where the dye is not chemically bound and the color fades in comparison to lyocell.

0014 Sustainable Production

sustainable production

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 effciency 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” (year 2000).

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have been certified as Bio-based 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).
