What is Tencel®?

Tencel® is a textile fiber produced from eucalyptus pulp.

This artificial material is 100% cellulosic and requires very little water for its manufacture. Goodbye the small tops in viscose not responsible!

How is Tencel® made? What is its composition?

the Tencel® is made from wood pulp. During its manufacturing process, cellulose - a protein present in the wooden bark - is extracted and then is subject to a spinning technique consisting in dissolving the material in a non -toxic solvent, thus avoiding polluting the water used as many 'Other materials can do it.
