TENCEL® – The new age fiber
TENCEL® is the functional fiber from nature. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely eco-friendly, due to the closed loop system. On the day that TENCEL® was invented, a new chapter was written in the history of fibers. Textiles of TENCEL® are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
During Index, largest Nonwovens fair in Geneva from 8.-11. April, EDANA announced the winner of the EDANA’s INDEX™ 14 Awards.
With the cellulose fiber TENCEL® as a short-cut type, Lenzing is satisfying the trend of the times in the nonwovens industry. The fiber is biodegradable and strong and yet it is still “flushable”, ideal for high quality wipes and care wipes.
