Tencel, the brand name for Lyocell, is an environmentally friendly fabric. Similar in handle to viscose, it is also made from plant cellulose. Tencel or Lyocell is soft to touch and has a wonderful drape. It has an entirely transparent supply chain and the fibres come from renewable sources. It is made using non toxic solvents using a 'closed loop production' meaning 99.6% of the solvents are captured and recycled in biological recycling plants.
