01 / 016 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 source of raw material beech wood, sourced from sustainable forests in Austria and neighboring countries.

back
02 / 016 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
03 / 016 feels cool and dry / 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
04 / 016 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
05 / 016 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 ecological impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%. You can have the assurance that your fashion choices are not contributing to an adverse impact on the environment.

back
06 / 016 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.

back
07 / 016 contributes to breathability

TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers naturally manage the transportation of moisture, enhancing fabrics by keeping your skin feeling pleasantly comfortable. Derived from natural material, the microscopic fibrils of lyocell cellulosic fibers and sub-structure of modal fibers are structured to regulate the absorption and release of moisture. This contributes to breathable fabrics that support the body’s natural temperature regulating properties, creating a refreshingly cooling sensation on your skin

back
08 / 016 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
09 / 016 minimal static charge

The ability to absorb moisture makes TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers tension-free with lower electrostatic charging. In comparison with synthetics, there is an absence of electrostatic charge.

back
010 / 016 sheen

The efficient dye uptake of TENCEL™ Lyocell enables color dyes to penetrate deeply into the fiber structure, resulting in impressive color brilliance. Furthermore when viewed under an electron microscope, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers exhibit a smooth surface area, giving textiles a luxurious sheen. The combination of deeper dye uptake and smooth fiber surface makes the color of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers appear brighter and perceptibly more intense than that of cotton fabrics.

back
011 / 016 strength

Distinguished by their greater strength among cellulose fibers, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are durable and have a long-lasting quality.

back
012 / 016 smoothness

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are naturally smooth to the touch and enhance the quality of fabrics to glide lightly over your skin.

back
013 / 016 drape

Fabrics containing TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers produce a smooth drape, creating a flattering appearance.

back
014 / 016 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
015 / 016 long-lasting softness

Exhibiting high flexibility, TENCEL™ Modal wood-based fibers offer textiles a long-lasting quality of exquisite softness. Owing to the fiber’s sleek cross-section, TENCEL™ Modal fibers enhance the soft touch of fabrics even after repeated washing.

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.

back
016 / 016 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.
