We use TENCEL™ Modal Micro (TENCEL™ Modal fibres with Micro technology). TENCEL™ is Lenzing’s flagship brand for textiles.
Used for a variety of highly specialized applications, the benefits of TENCEL™ fibres can be discerned instantly:
Soft to the skin, smooth to the touch, luxurious in shine and flow—they caress the senses. And convince minds with their exceptional capacity for thermal regulation and moisture absorption.
Soft, softer, softest. Softness is the overriding principle. Our exceptional, naturally soft, and smooth feel comes from Lenzing’s Eco Soft technology. The fabrics create a pleasant, almost soothing cool feeling on the skin contributed by the special attributes of TENCEL™ fibres.
One of the most outstanding qualities of TENCEL™ fibers is the ability to enhance breathability. The smooth fiber surface absorbs and releases moisture efficiently and supports the body’s natural thermal regulation.
Long lasting color retention
Impressively vibrant colors that don’t fade over time: That’s a piece of cake with TENCEL™ Modal Micro fibers. The smooth surface of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers allows color dyes to penetrate deeply into the fiber structure, resulting in impressive color brilliance.
Anti Microbial Protection
All our products are finished with a heavy metal free Bio-Wash from industry leader Fresche® using a naturally derived anti microbial technology that is highly effective against bacteria, fungus, mould, mildew and odour. It does not interfere with healthy bacteria on your body but instead prevents growth on the fabric. Fresche® is invisible, and does not impact colour, texture, or handling of your product.
Think and act sustainably:
Overall, the industry produces close to 100 million tons of fibres every year. And the figures are growing. This is not without negative effects on the environment. Fortunately, more and more consumers are aware of this ecological strain. Hence, the demand for sustainable textile and non-woven products is rising.
At Tailor & Circus, we believe in the concept of circular economy and closed-loop processes. We dedicate our innovative spirit and engineering excellence to solutions that make best possible use of our natural source material and preserve our planet’s resources.
Each Lenzing fiber in your Tailor and Circus product is made of cellulose, a natural component of Lenzing’s renewable source material wood. This is at the core of our model.
Lenzing utilizes all valuable components that the renewable and natural raw material offers from sustainably managed plantations. Growing trees feed on sunlight, water and carbon dioxide. At the end of the fibre cycle, cellulose disintegrates into its native substances and prepares the ground for new plants to grow.
The water used for production is used over and over and recirculated into the system. This results in a perfectly sustainable circular model.
The miracle of nature is our inspiration.
Our fibers are sustainable. This isn’t something we just claim. It is a fact. Lenzing has had it proven in a life cycle assessment done by Utrecht University.
Lenzing considered its ecological footprint long before the word sustainability was known as a term in our industry, let alone applied as a concept.
They evaluated every stage, from wood sourcing to production. The study even included possible ways of product disposal, such as burning. Lenzing viscose and particularly our Lyocell fibers performed exceptionally well in this assessment.
The results gathered in these studies are now used as a universal standard for the evaluation of various fibers by international providers of data and guidelines.
