The fiber tencel is a purely natural fiber composed of cellulose that constitutes the main part of the plant cells. The starting material of the tencel is the wood – a natural material, washable.
The cellulose is extracted from wood – which is the raw material both for paper and for the wadding – and is subsequently processed and transformed into tencel. Being constructed from 100% cellulose, tencel meets all requirements of the textile industry today. The production process is compatible with the environment, the fiber is completely biodegradable and environmentally friendly in subsequent processing.
Why choose this fiber?
As with all natural fibers, the contact tencel gives a very pleasant feeling of softness. The comfort is also guaranteed by its excellent breathability, which is to pass the air and absorb moisture. The manufacturing process, developed after years of research, is distinguished by: • its high degree of non-pollution of the environment;
its assimilation cycle allows a complete recycling of the solvent used by almost 100%;
this means that you do not have contaminants factors for water and for air. Even in the subsequent processing steps it was found a minimum use of chemicals.
The origins of tencel
How does natural tencel fibre come about? It is an entirely natural fibre so the manufacturing process is extremely environmentally friendly. The fibre is obtained from wood, from which cellulose is extracted and transformed into tencel, which is fully biodegradable and environmentally friendly. Tencel fibre is used to make fabrics for mattresses, furnishings, sportswear, etc. Tencel fibre fabric is extremely soft to the touch and highly breathable.
