What is TENCEL™? Discover the award-winning, eco-friendly fabric
When we started Undercover, we went out of our way to source our fabric. We searched far and wide, speaking to dozens of textile experts in Portugal and testing countless samples in the process. Our bed linen should not only look great and feel wonderful on the skin but also boast outstanding environmental credentials. TENCEL™ meets all of these criteria and more.
Choose to sleep in TENCEL™ and you’re opting for one of the world’s most sustainable materials. We blend the finest quality cotton with this revolutionary botanical yarn to create an exquisite lightweight textile that’s soft and crisp – guaranteed to give you a wonderful night’s sleep. Naturally soft to the touch with an exquisitely silky hand-feel and natural sheen, enhancing your quality of sleep and home life, ensuring natural comfort for sensitive skin.
Did you know that TENCEL™ has an even higher vapor uptake than cotton? This means it’s even more breathable than cotton! It’s also temperature regulating, making it the perfect bed linen fabric for both summer and winter.
Back to nature
The fibers originate from trees such as eucalyptus, and are then manufactured using an environmentally responsible production process. The fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, and thus can fully revert back to nature. For this reason, TENCEL™ won the European Award for the Environment for its closed loop production process which recycles water and reuses solvents at a recovery rate of more than 99%.
