Our active vest is made from Tencel - a material well known for its outstanding physical characteristics - silky softness and luxurious drape. It has excellent moisture absorbency, and is naturally hygienic as it inhibits the growth of bacteria making it great for sports clothes.
Tencel Lyocell, to give it its full name, is the most environmentally friendly man-made cellulosic fibre available today. It is produced exclusively from the wood pulp of Eucalyptus trees certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC), and the fibre carries the Pan-European Forest Council (PEFC) quality seal.
The only chemical used in the Tencel manufacturing process is the non-toxic solvent, amine oxide, that allows closed loop processing where up to 99% of the chemical is perpetually re-used, minimising the impact on the environment and conserving energy and water. The European Union (EU) awarded this process the Environmental Award 2000 in the category 'technology for sustainable development'.
