Eco-Friendly Tencel

A favorite fiber of WovenDesigns is tencel (Lyocell). 

Tencel is made from trees – actually from the cellulose inside trees. Eucalyptus trees are grown without irrigation or pesticides on special tree farms where the trees are constantly replanted. The cellulose is treated using non-toxic organic solvents that are recycled in the manufacturing process. This ecologically sound method of production is environmentally responsible.

Tencel has all of the characteristics of a luxury fiber: the comfort of cotton, the fluid drape of rayon, the strength of a synthetic, and the luster of silk.
