WE ♥ WOOD

The forest as a treasure chest for our feel-good TENCEL™ fibers.

Wood you… wear textiles originating from wood? We wood!
2 /
Wood you … believe that the reproduction activities of this wild cat, called an ocelot, have something in common with TENCEL™ fibers? We wood!
3 /
Wood you… give a precious little mammal space for nocturnal adventures and a cozy nest in which to rest? We wood!

TENCEL™ Lyocell

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are made from a resource-saving, closed loop production process*

*Savings consider solvent recovery

TENCEL™ Modal

TENCEL™ Modal production process is based on a highly resource-efficient production technology with high recovery and recycling rates. According to the Higg Materials Sustainability Index (Higg MSI), TENCEL™ Modal has a lower environmental impact than generic modal* in the categories of energy consumption (fossil fuels), global warming, water consumption and eutrophication.

*The results were calculated according to LCA standards (ISO 14040/44) and are made available via the Higg Materials Sustainability Index (MSI) by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition.
