EUCALYPTUS

Tencel is derived from eucalyptus wood, whose production is considered ecologically and economically revolutionary.

Eucalyptus grows very quickly and is grown in durable forest plantations without artificial irrigation or genetic manipulation. Unlike traditional cotton, Tencel is produced without the use of water and pesticides.

In addition, eucalyptus can be grown on marginal yield surfaces that are not used for food production. As a result the productivity of Tencel fibers is 10 times higher than that of cotton. In 6 sq.m. of land are 10 Tencel t-shirts can be produced as opposed to 1 of cotton.

But what makes the Tencel production process revolutionary is the complete recycling of the used solvent, which is almost 100% recovered, while the remaining, very limited emissions are degraded in biological purification plants. For this reason the production process was awarded by the European Union with the “European Award for the Environment” award. In addition, the solvent used belongs to the family of amino acids and is also used in body care products. The absence of risks of the solvent is proven in the dermatological and toxicological fields.

In every piece of clothing containing Tencel you feel a bit of nature. As soft as silk but as resistant as polyester, this natural fiber is also extraordinarily breathable. Through the nano-fibrils, Tencel stores moisture and then quickly emits it into the environment. This function provides a very pleasant thermal compensation on the skin that makes the fabric warm in winter and cool in summer.
