Exploring the alternative fabrics of TENCEL Lyocell and SilverPure.
The raw material of TENCEL lyocell is wood from fast growing species such as eucalyptus, birch, and oak, which are sourced from sustainably managed plantations that have been certified according to FSC/PEFC standards. SilverPure is a proprietary blend designed for an active lifestyle which combines the properties of polyester and silver. Silver has naturally antimicrobial properties thanks to the oligodynamic effect. In a moist environment such as sweating, silver ions (Ag+) are released and bind with proteins inside and outside the bacterial cell membranes. This inhibits cell respiration and reproduction which effectively kills the bacteria.
