Sustainable Fabrics: A Spotlight on TENCEL™ Modal


Why the sustainable fabric is good for the Earth and feels just right on your skin. 


As a brand, we're committed to sustainability and believe there is a better way of making clothes than the current industry norm. One of the ways we can make a difference is by using responsibly sourced, sustainable fabrics that are good for the planet. 


We use TENCEL™ Modal because it's unbelievably soft and sustainably made (more on that in a bit). And, we aren't the only ones who are obsessed—it's no surprise that it is our best selling fabric.


Get to know the silky smooth, lightweight, and incredibly comfy fabric that's environmentally friendly and its amazing properties that make you never want to take it off.



TENCEL™ modal is a silky smooth biodegradable fabric that's lightweight, temperature-regulating, and resistant to fading and pilling. 




TENCEL™ modal fibers are manufactured from Beechwood trees that come from sustainably managed forests.

Forest Preservation


Sustainable forest management ensures the trees can only be felled at the rate at which they can grow back. These forests grow without the use of chemical fertilizers and absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide. They also provide clean water and fresh air, and are home to numerous animal and plant species.


Conservation efforts implement sourcing policies that ensure ancient and endangered forests do not end up in textiles.

Less Waste


Half of the wood used to create TENCEL™ modal is transformed into pulp and other marketable biobased products, while any residue is being used for bioenergy.


By using more than 83% of bioenergy, TENCEL™ Modal production causes around 81.5% less greenhouse gas emissions than generic modal.

Less Water & Energy 


Water and energy are used sparingly throughout the production process, from fiber to fabric, resulting in lower environmental impact. 


TENCEL™ Modal fibers consume on average 97% less water compared to conventional cotton.


100% Biodegradable


The fabric's fibers are fully compostable and biodegradable under soil, freshwater, and marine environments. They offer an effective substitute to fossil-based synthetic fibers that are part of the pressing plastic pollution problem.




Exquisitely Soft 


It's so soft, it feels like silk and it maintains its softness even after multiple washes. 


Gentle On Skin


Naturally soft fibers in the fabric ensure long-lasting comfort for sensitive skin.


Fade Resistant


Color pigments retain their vibrancy and are less prone to fade than conventionally dyed fibers—even after repeated washing.


Temperature Regulating 


TENCEL™ Modal fibers are derived from natural material and are structured to regulate the absorption and release of moisture, making it a fabric that supports the body’s natural thermal regulation. 


Bonus For Babies


TENCEL™ Modal fibers are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, fulfilling the highest standard for the use in baby clothing.
