Tencel / Lyocell

We really love Tencel and Lyocell, and here's why!

We are quite enthusiastic about Tencel and Lyocell, and it's not just because they are made from wood pulp from fast-growing tree species like eucalyptus. No, it's also because the production of Tencel/Lyocell is like an environmentally friendly dance. Imagine a closed loop where almost all solvents are recycled. It's like a green symphony where nothing goes to waste, and that's how we like it!

But it gets better. Tencel and Lyocell are not only environmentally friendly, but they are also biodegradable. This means that when your products made with Tencel or Lyocell reach the end of their life, they return to nature without leaving a lot of mess behind. We love a good ending that involves less waste!

Now, let's shift gears and talk a bit about the difference between Tencel and Lyocell. Both are like good companions, but there are some subtle nuances. Tencel is actually a type of Lyocell, so it's a bit like saying all Tencels are Lyocells, but not all Lyocells are Tencels.

Are you still following me?

The crucial difference is that when it says Tencel instead of Lyocell, the material comes from Austrian Lenzing. They make all their Lyocell in a special way and in closed-loop systems where the chemistry is reused over and over. So with Tencel, you are guaranteed that it's done the right way and in a closed-loop process. You can't be sure of that when it just says Lyocell. Another way to put it is that both Tencel and Lyocell are like cola... but Tencel is your guarantee that it's Coca-Cola and not just some random cola... or it's Pepsi if that's more your preference!

Among the most environmentally friendly materials.

Tencel – also known by the technical name lyocell – is among the most environmentally friendly materials. It is made of wood. You may wonder thoroughly how clothes can be produced from wood. Because isn't it the kind that stands out in the forest and is fairly massive? Yes it is. But from the robust wood, small fibers can be formed, which can be used in the production of clothes. The fibers are formed by chopping the wood into wood pulp, after which it dissolves in a closed, chemical process, and is subsequently converted into small fibers which must be rinsed and later spun into yarn. The fact that the chemical process takes place in a closed system means that 99.5% of the chemical substances are recycled from production to production. At the same time, the closed system ensures that no contaminated waste water flows into lakes, the sea etc.
