You mean lyocell, right?

Not exactly. Lyocell = a man-made cellulose fiber that originates from wood pulp.

Tencel = branded lyocell that is produced by Lenzing Group. A company that is leading the way to produce cellulose fiber in an environmentally conscious way.

So what's the difference between Tencel and lyocell? Well, lyocell is not very well regulated and it is less transparent than Tencel.

Tencel comes from the wood pulp of eucalyptus trees. These trees have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and are harvested under strict guidelines. This ensures that the trees not only come from well managed forests, but also ensures protection and conservation of these forests.

Why do we love Tencel?

Tencel not only has a smaller carbon footprint, but it also uses less water to be produced.  Lenzing Group utilizes a closed-loop system which allows for more than 99% of the solvent used to produce Tencel to be reused.

From a design and consumer standpoint, Tencel is a very strong and versatile fiber.  It can be used in a multitude of ways. It's soft, feels good on the skin, and has a beautiful drape.
