What is Tencel?
Tencel is a brand name for a set of fibers called lyocell and modal. These "regenerated cellulose" fibers are known for feeling super soft and are widely used sustainably. It uses chemicals that are less-toxic and get recycled in the process, so there's minimal waste. It also uses wood from trees in sustainably-harvested forests.
Why do we use it?
TENCEL™ fibers with REFIBRA™ technology are manufactured in an award-winning, efficient closed-loop process, contributing to the textile industry's circular economy. This innovative method makes a significant contribution to the efficiency and environmental protection.
Tencel stands out mainly for its softness. It has excellent drape, doesn't wrinkle easily, and holds dye well, so it makes vibrant colors. It's also breathable and manages moisture, so it helps with temperature regulation. These features make it particularly popular for clothing and beddings.
Where is made from?
The fibers originate from the renewable raw material wood, created by photosynthesis. The certified biobased fibers are manufactured using an environmentally responsible production process. The fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, and thus can fully revert to nature.
Our source of supply is China-based, and therefore, all materials are traceable and duly certified.
At Rivta, this is how we transform the forest's woods into our brand-new bags:
