Environmentally sustainable fabrics
No harmful products are used to manufacture TENCEL™ Lyocell fibre. Cellulose is dissolved in a natural non-toxic substance that is subsequently 99% recycled and reused in a closed production circuit. Its production requires 20 times less water than cotton. All these factors explain its very low environmental impact.
