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.

Exceptionally silky-smooth filament produced by Eco Filament technology is ideal for luxury fashion garments and luxury bedding.
As a luxury filament fashioned to be astoundingly versatile, LENZING™ Lyocell Filament blends superbly with other noble fibers such as silk, cashmere or wool.
LENZING™ Lyocell Filament is 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 following the stringent guidelines of the Lenzing Wood and Pulp Policy. These fibers are available with FSC®(C041246) or PEFC™ certification upon request.
Soft to the touch, LENZING™ Lyocell Filament produces 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 silk (1.33g/cm3) and can therefore produce a better drape effect.
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 tests.
The color dyes are chemically bound and efficiently penetrate deeply into the filament 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.
