more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk, cooler than linen
No matter if motor yacht or sailing vessel, TENCEL® is the perfect fabric for bedding on boats.
The fibre’s fibril structure perfectly manages humidity and moisture.
TENCEL® with its smooth fibre surface, feels wonderfully soft against the skin, unlike rough fibre surfaces which may cause skin irritations.
TENCEL® is a revolutionary new age ‘botanic’ fibre extracted from the raw material wood.
The production of TENCEL® fibre is extremely eco-friendly due to a closed loop manufacturing process where solvents used in the process are recycled by almost 100%.
The growth of bacteria can be restricted completely naturally without chemical additives. A test* demonstrates that the growth of bacteria on TENCEL® is greatly reduced. In synthetic fibers, on the other hand, the number of bacteria increases by up to 2000 times.
