Who would imagine that a fabric made from a tree could be soft and flowing, cool and comfortable, and need little ironing? Tencel® Lyocell, to give it its full name, is a new eco textile that drapes well, is extremely soft to the touch, and yet is hard wearing and machine washable.
Tencel® is made from the wood pulp of Eucalyptus trees certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council and the process used to make the fibre won the European Union’s Environmental Award 2000 in the category ‘technology for sustainable development’.
Help the environment by switching from cotton. Did you know that conventional non-organic cotton production uses more chemicals per unit area than any other crop and accounts for 16% of the world’s pesticides?
