Tencel or Lyocell is a natural, man-made fiber from the wood pulp of sustainable tree farming. We only have great things to say about tencel from how it’s sourced to production. Not to mention that the actual fabric feels luxurious to touch, is lightweight, and a perfect material for drapey flattering clothing.
If you’re looking to start a line or projects of sustainable, eco friendly and organic clothing you consider Tencel or Lyocell as one of your fabrics.
The Tencel production process is non-toxic, and able to be re-used again and again due to a technique called ‘closed loop’ spinning. This eliminates dumping of waste by 98%. Read more about tencel here
We have found great wholesale tencel suppliers that are also committed to a sustainable manufacturing process.
