TENCEL® is a brand, by Lenzing. The fibre used for the TENCEL® fabric is called Lyocell.
TENCEL® Lyocell is obtained from traceable and sustainable wood pulp being dissolved in a non toxic organic recovered and reused solvent.
This method is referred to as a closed loop process, meaning in the case of TENCEL® Lyocell, more than 99% of the solvent is recovered and reused, all of this leading to less land and water usage.
Within the solvent spinning process that produces Tencel®, a closed loop circuit recovers, purifies and reuses the solvent up to 99.5 percent, yielding very little by product.
This environmentally conscious process, which is also 100 percent organic since the basis is a natural raw material.
