We love Tencel® so much we would marry it.
TENCEL® is a plant-based fiber with some out of this world capabilities: it’s moisture-wicking, durable, low-maintenance, and naturally inhibits the growth of bacteria. And it’s soft. Like, REALLY soft. TENCEL®’s performance qualities are similar to polyester, but with the breathability of cotton and the drape and hand feel of silk. TENCEL® is made from Forest Stewardship Council Certified sustainable eucalyptus trees. (Fun fact: Eucalyptus requires fewer pesticides and far less acreage and water to grow than cotton!). Eucalyptus wood pulp is processed with nontoxic solvents in a closed-loop system wherein 99% of the solvents are recovered and recycled. The result? A yarn that’s been certified Oeko-Tex® Standard 100; this certification ensures rigorous testing and auditing to determine environmentally friendly textiles. We are committed to increasing our use of this sustainable fiber.
Choosing sustainability isn't the easy route, it's the only route.
The apparel industry is the fourth largest polluter of air and water on Earth. The solution? Go sustainable, or go nude. Minimizing our environmental impact and helping clean up the apparel industry is an integral part of our business ethos.
