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.
