LYOCELL / TENCEL™
Lyocell is a regenerated cellulosic fiber which is sold under the trade name Tencel. Lyocell is know for being eco-friendlier in comparison with other regenerated fibers. From beginning to end, the manufacturing process is more environmentally sustainable. Another environmental benefit is that lyocell fabrics are fully biodegradable.
TENCEL™ Lyocell comes from Eucalyptus trees, which take only half an acre to produce one ton of fiber. It’s closed loop production means 99% of the non-toxic solvent is reused.
