A new addition to our essentials is the classic button-up shirt made of Tencel for both men and women. These contribute to our essentials as an alternative to our organic oxford shirts. Tencel is a not so commonly known material with a sustainable profile. The fiber is extracted from eucalyptus wood pulp, making the raw material natural. All of this is sustained during the production process, where no harmful chemicals are used. The fabric production is an environmentally conscious process that is completed in a closed-loop matter, meaning that mainly all resources are being recovered and then reused for the production of new fabric.
Tencel is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen. Compared to synthetic fabrics, the fabric’s quick-dry effect is unique. Thanks to these properties these light blue shirts are perfect for the summer days.
