Tencel ™ is a brand owned by Lenzing AG, with which it certifies the production of Lyocell and Modal textile fibers.
Lyocell is an artificial textile fiber of natural origin extracted from the cellulose of eucalyptus trees. Lyocell is therefore a vegetal viscosa produced in an ecological way (with a low environmental impact).
Lyocell eucalyptus fiber is not a natural fabric, as it is often defined, but an artificial fabric made in the laboratory with chemical processes. Despite this, Lyocell is a 100% biodegradable fabric.
All fabrics on the market need chemicals for extraction and in the absence of textile certifications guaranteeing an environmentally friendly production any fabric can be highly detrimental to the environment and social aspect.
This makes us consider Lyocell an ecological fabric only if produced by certified companies with low environmental impact.
Lyocell textile fiber is obtained from Eucalyptus trees grown by companies certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
Thanks to its extraordinary qualities of breathability, Lyocell solves problems of perspiration and odors, is a hygroscopic fabric, has a great ability to absorb moisture created by the body and expel it to the outside immediately.
Lyocell is a fabric that keeps warm in winter and cool in summer, has natural anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic properties.
Lyocell is a bright and soft fabric on the skin, but its main feature is definitely the breathability.
