TENCEL™ is a trademark of Lenzing AG. The generic fiber type is lyocell. It recently has gained popularity, especially within the realm of homeware products.
TENCEL™ lyocell fibers are made out of the cellulose from wood – more specifically, from wood out of sustainably managed forests, , crushed into a pulp and then spun into fibers. Woven fabrics out of these fibers tend to be strong, durable, yet soft, smooth and perfect for those with sensitive skin. The end product has amazing climate control capabilities which will keep you warm in the winter, and cool in the summer.
TENCEL™ Lyocell can also be produced into a thicker filling, called ‘stoph’, which is used in some of our products such as the pillows, duvets and plush mattress comforters. Some of our products containing TENCEL™ Lyocell are woven with Modal, which is a deluxe botanic organic cotton. The Modal fibers bring an extra incredible natural softness and shine to our products. fabrics with TENCEL™ fibers hold up its quality, colour, and shape even after many wash cycles. Our products also contain anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic qualities.
TENCEL™ fibers bring luxurious nature into your home.

BENEFITS OF TENCEL
How is Tencel™ is produced?
TENCEL™ branded lyocell is a fiber made from the cellulose of sustainable wood sources. All trees are sustainably harvested, and from certified and controlled sources .
The trees are harvested and brought to Lenzing premises. When the wood arrives it is shredded into small pieces and mixed with a solvent to break down the wood fibers.
Once the wood is broken down, a pulp mixture is created, the water is drawn out and 99% of the water will be recycled to be used again.
The pulp is then pumped through specially designed spinnerets and turned into light and fluffy fibers.
The fibers can be further processed and made into continuous strands of yarn, that can also be spun with other products such as cotton.
The yarn is then fed into a loom, to create fabric for items such as our premium BYAKUYA bedlinnens.
