A Look Behind Our Materials


Bamboo is an ideal resource and material.

Bamboo has many advantages as a natural fiber as well as being one of the most sustainable resources available. Reaching up to 35 meters tall, bamboos are the largest members of the grass family. With the high growth rate of bamboo and the fact that bamboo can grow in such diverse climates bamboo plants are a sustainable and versatile resource.

As a textile fiber bamboo is both resilient and durable. In studies comparing it to cotton and polyester, it is found to have a high breaking tenacity, better moisture wicking properties and better moisture absorption. These benefits became clear as we tested our pillows against other, more synthetic pillows.

 

THE WONDER OF EUCALYPTUS FIBER

A life cycle analysis demonstrates the eco-friendliness of TENCEL® in comparison to cotton, polyester and polypropylene.

The study evaluates all the environmental impacts in the course of extracting the fiber and arrives at the conclusion that cotton’s toxic impact on fresh water and soil is enormous in comparison to TENCEL®. Another ecological advantage of TENCEL® is that the raw material wood, stems from forest plantations which practice sustainability. The cultivated forest land is not suitable for agriculture. In contrast, cotton uses productive agricultural land, which means it is competing with food production. Moreover, water consumption is 10 – 20 times lower than with cotton.

Eucalyptus fibre, often known by its brand name TENCEL®, is a revolutionary new plant-based fibre. Its exceptional natural characteristics for absorbency, hygiene and temperature regulation make it ideal for use in bedding.
