This sustainable and eco-friendly fabric blend is of botanic origin, made from wood (birch, oak and eucalyptus) grown in responsibly managed forests. Both Tencel and Modal are branded lyocell fibers from Austrian company, Lenzing and Tencel is considered one of the most cutting-edge textiles on the market today due to its properties and environmentally-friendly production process. As Lenzing describes: “Textiles of Tencel fibers are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen”.
Tencel is manufactured via a unique closed-loop process that has been awarded the “European Award for the Environment” for the EU. The process recycles 99% of the chemical solvents used instead of being discharged as waste.
The fabric is 100% biodegradable and has properties that all mums can appreciate: Moisture-wicking, antibacterial, breathable, temperature-regulating and a smooth,soft texture that minimizes any possible skin irritation. The no-wrinkle fabric is durable both wet and dry, and can maintain its shape wash after wash with zero pilling. The colour hold is also steadfast and will not fade. It is truly a new age material that is super-comfy and moves with the wearer.
Similar to our Tencel Modal, the bamboo viscose fabric we use is buttery smooth, antimicrobial, antistatic, moisture-wicking and helps to regulate temperature. Our particular jersey blend is a tad thicker than other similar bamboo viscose products in the market, so it looks and feels more robust. In fact, the feel of our fabric can be compared to luxurious yoga wear. Easy to wash and dry, our shirts will keep their shape and rich, vibrant colours use after use.
Non-synthetic and plant-based, bamboo viscose is derived from a chemical process that alters the cellulose composition of bamboo fibers and results in the smooth, easy care fabric that is becoming increasingly popular in the childrenswear space.The bamboo viscose fabric is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. This means that no chemicals are used during the manufacturing process that are harmful to humans (especially little ones).
