62% Tencel and 38% Linen
Tencel: Tencel® is the brand name for Lyocell, a form of rayon. It is an award-winning eco-fibre made from tree cellulose farmed on wasteland. It is highly economical in its use of energy and natural resources, it is bio-degradable and it looks and feels great. It’s made from wood pulp, so it’s also recyclable. It doesn’t get bleached and it’s naturally wrinkle-free, so you don’t need to waste time or energy ironing it! As with many materials, Tencel production uses chemicals in the pulping process, but this is done in a 'closed-loop' system, so is benign – the thing that makes Tencel special is the recovery and reuse of up to 99.8 percent of the solvent used in that process, and the remaining emissions are broken down in biological water treatment plants. In fact, the solvent is not acidic, does not remain in the fibre, and has been proven harmless in dermatological and toxicological tests.
Linen: Linen yarns come from Flax plants - a crop that requires very little pest-controlling chemicals. It’s very breathable, ideal in warm weather and has a distinguished natural look and feel. The Flax plant doesn’t require a lot of energy or water resources to produce, and the entire plant is used to make linen, leaving no waste. Linen clothing is also naturally biodegradable and recyclable.
