TENCEL® / MODAL® BLENDS
Exceptionally soft, beautifully drapey, quick-drying Tencel® and Modal® blends have revolutionised outdoor clothing. The wood pulp used to make both Tencel® and Modal® is renewably sourced and blended with other fibers to create a breathable, super-soft fabric that lends itself to high intensity activity as well as more subdued environments for dinner or drinks.
Tencel® is a natural fiber extracted from raw eucalyptus wood. By using our trusted supplier, Lenzing, we ensure that the eucalyptus used comes from responsibly managed forests that have been independently certified by the Soil Association on behalf of the Forest Stewardship Council. By using FSC-certified wood, we’re supporting environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests. Tencel® is also fully biodegradable.
Benefits of Tencel®:
- Extremely soft
- Anti bacterial and anti odour
- Moisture control
Modal® is extracted from beech trees. Our modal is sourced from sustainably-managed forests in Austria and neighbouring countries. Modal® retains its shape and colour after repeated wear, meanwhile staying remarkably soft.
Benefits of Modal®:
- Impeccable softness
- Extremely durable
- Moisture management
