Concept: TENCELTM Lyocell allows a fluid drape and soft touch, while elastane provides a good stretch and recovery, and enables the knit to adapt to body movement. Combining these properties with Naturally Clean® technology, responsible for a clean surface, a delicate, comfortable and stretchy jersey is obtained.

An exceptional smart alternative and responsible finishing process. Naturally Clean takes a cost-effective modern approach that eliminates aggressive treatments and optimizes clean surfaces, vivid colors, and beautifully smooth to the touch feel. Naturally Clean achieves this by using Novozymes technologies, the company is indeed the world leader in biological solutions. Second, using textile chemicals with the lowest possible environmental impact without compromising performance. Naturally Clean is a long-lasting technology that maintains the original characteristics for an extended period of time and the LCA of the process is available. All materials are Oeko-Tex conform. According to Novozymes, this finishing technique extends the life of the garment by at least 20%.
The increase in lifetime of a garment could be one of the main pathways for decreasing the environmental impact of textile industry. On this topic, Wrap published a report where is stated that by extending the life of clothes by just nine extra months of active use, we would be able to reduce carbon, water and waste footprints by around 20-30% each.
Known for their natural comfort, TENCELTM Lyocell fibers are versatile and can be combined with a wide range of textile fibers to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of fabrics.
Unique physical properties of TENCELTM Lyocell fibers lead to their great strength, efficient moisture absorption and gentleness to skin.
TencelTM Lyocell fibers are produced from renewable raw material, being manufactured using an environmentally responsible production process. Wood and pulp used by the LenzingTM Group come from natural forests and sustainably managed plantations.
The underlying idea of the Lyocell process is to dissolve and process the pulp in a closed loop without any chemical derivatisation. Derived from nature, all Lyocell fiber types have been certified by the Belgium certification company VINÇOTTE as biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, and thus, they can fully revert to nature.
TENCELTM Lyocell fibers are certified with the internationally recognized EU Ecolabel, an environmental quality label only awarded to products and services which have a significantly lower environmental impact throughout their entire lifecycle.
LenzingTM Group, responsible for the development and commercialization of TencelTM Lyocell and Modal and RefibraTM, is certified by several types of different standards, from OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, USDA Biobased, Responsible Forestry - FSC® or PEFCTM, EU Ecolabel to management certifications according to ISO 9001; ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and Recycled Claim Standard (RCS), among others.
This group also focus on philanthropy, fully supporting, among others, Canopy’s (non-profit environmental organization), which leads an initiative with 125 global fashion, designer, and retail brands to protect the world’s ancient and endangered forests from ending up in textiles.
The main property of elastane is the capability of form-fitting and its unique stretchiness. The use of elastane guarantees a final fabric with increased stretch and a stable dimensional stability.
Definitely my go to comfortably shorts. Lightweight and thin. These shorts are great for anywhere.
There is a reason they are on the top seller, and I can tell you that I am overly impressed with the fit and feel of these.
All I have to say is love! I'm buying a 2nd pair of leggings! They fit great and they are warm (but not too warm). They are high waisted which I love. I will be buying these till they stop making them. Get
these leggings! Add to cart! Go!
I bought this shirt as a small gift for my husband. The length was perfect for him. The shirt did not shrink after being washed and dried. The fabric is comfortable and the colors look great. I would purchase this shirt again.
