The Life Cycle of Tencel

Lyocell and Tencel are part of our world now. Most major fashion brands carry at least one form of the fiber in their collections and while many claim both fibers to be green, we wanted to do our own research.






Just A Quick History

Rayon: A textile fiber or fabric made from regenerated cellulose



Types of Rayon

  • Viscose

    Created in 1894 as a form of artifical silk. Viscose is porbably the most well-known form of Rayon.

  • Lyocell/Tencel

    To make things easy, Tencel is lyocell but the prodcution process is currently patented by Lenzing.

  • Modal

    Beech trees are the main derivative in modal. Mostly used in household items like towels, bedsheets and upholstry.

  • Cupro

    The process has been around for awhile (ealy 1900's) but only recently took off in textiles. Feels like a heavier silk.
