The new age fiber
TENCEL® is the functional fiber from nature. it is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely eco-friendly, due to the closed loop system. Textiles of Tencel are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
Tencel Polyester Cotton
Compared to synthetic fibers, the optimum moisture transportation of Tencel is unique. The fibril structure of the fiber helps create an optimal skin climate due to the superior moisture absorption. Synthetic fibers do not absorb any moisture as the comparison shows.
However, Tencel really stands out when compared with cotton. Compared to cotton, Tencel absorbs the moisture in a controlled and regular manner. With Tencel, a 50% improvement in moisture management was measured.
From Eucalyptus wood to fiber. TENCEL® comes from nature and makes use of photosynthesis which has, since the beginning of time, been an important mechanism in nature and the basis for life on earth. In photosynthesis the energy from the sun is absorbed by various dyestuffs, primarily green chlorophyll, and converted into chemical energy. In this respect, the starting products of carbon dioxide and water are converted into dextrose and oxygen. The more TENCEL® you have, the more oxygen.
