The ultimate blend of softness, strength, and breathability
Tencel clothing is a fantastic choice for your sustainable capsule wardrobe, and it comes with many special advantages.
It's actually made from wood pulp, usually from Eucalyptus trees. What's really cool is that it's made in a way that recycles 99% of the solvent used, which is great news for the environment.
encel clothes feel super soft, they let your skin breathe, and they're really strong. Plus, making Tencel uses less energy and water compared to cotton.
Now, you might notice that Tencel clothing is often a bit pricier than regular cotton clothing, but based on the environmental benefits and its durability it’s totally worth it! We believe in choosing quality over quantity any day.
So, the next time you're shopping for clothes, think about choosing Tencel items instead of those made from traditional materials. It's a small step that can make a big difference in reducing the impact of the fashion industry on our planet.
