Our Materials: Lyocell

Why we believe is good for you

One of the main qualities of lyocell is its breathability and moisture efficiency.

This fiber has 50% more capacity to absorb moisture in comparison with cotton. Which also makes it Anti-bacterial and great for people suffering from allergies. 

This eco fabric is incredibly soft on the skin and its smooth surface and lightweight nature make it very suitable for sensitive skin.

And let’s not forget to mention its durability both while wet and dry, and its resistance to wrinkles. 

Why we believe is sustainable

The main thing making Lyocell sustainable is its closed-loop production cycle that recycles almost all of the chemicals used. This fibre is of botanical origin and consists of cellulose fibers that are sourced from wood pulp from sustainably managed timber industries. 

As a naturally derived fabric Lyocell is biodegradable. Furthermore in its making much less energy and water are being used in comparison to other fabrics.
