Looks Made From Tencel Fabric

You're probably wondering what Tencel is. Well Tencel according to Tencel.com - is branded Lyocell(a form of rayon) and Modal fibers that are produced by environmentally responsible processes from a sustainably sourced natural raw material wood. Tencel is considered to be very versatile so you'll notice that when you purchase clothing made of tencel you'll also notice that sometimes not always that it might be combined with cotton, silk, linen, wool, polyester and other textiles.

Tencel is considered to be more absorbent than cotton and softer than silk. Tencel is very common and popular when it comes to bedding and athletic apparel. If you go to places like West Elm, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Pottery Barn and so many other bedding stores you can check the bedding section and you'll find lots of sheets and pillowcases and other bedding items that are made of tencel.

The reason I wanted to take a look at Tencel is because it is one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly fabrics out there. Also when tencel is being made very little water is needed unlike with cotton which requires lots of water in order for it to be produced. Tencel is also softer than cotton so that makes it very non-irritating even for people with sensitive skin.

At fast fashion retailer H&M they have a sustainable line called Conscious Exclusive Collection which they launch yearly. According to the H&M website the collection is made up of high-end environmentally friendly pieces, aiming to move H&M's fashion and sustainability development towards a more sustainable fashion future. Stella McCartney is well known for creating sustainable looks. Melissa Joy Manning the jewelry designer makes some of her jewelry from recycled metals and upcycled stones. Asos Eco Edit is another sustainable otpion. These are just some sustainable brands.

So since Tencel is considered to be the the one of the most sustainable fabrics I thought I'd share with you some looks that are made of Tencel. All the looks below are not 100% Tencel. But you'll notice when reading the description that Tencel makes up a large percentage. So if you're looking for sustainable pieces below are some looks to get you started.
