The Story of Tencel™

Born from nature with a silky-soft texture, a touch of Tencel™ is as good as it makes you feel. These fibres are naturally gentle on your skin with an exquisitely soft touch, enhancing your quality of sleep with superior functionality, and thus offering you utmost comfort without compromising on the welfare of the environment.

Sustainable fashion with Tencel™

The textile industry is one of the most polluting industries. With approximately 80% of textile waste going into landfill and most won’t biodegrade. Saving the environment is possible with preferred fibres like Tencel™ branded fibres, which are 100% compostable and 100% biodegradable in land and sea.

AKEMI Tencel™

AKEMI, as the official brand partner of Tencel™, strives to build on this green initiative and aims to deliver no less than the finest touch in terms of material, design, production and efficacy. This is made possible with the very best of nature using Tencel™ fibres.

From Forest to Fabric

Tencel™ cellulosic fibres help to maintain the environmental balance by being integrated into nature´s cycle. The fibres originate from the renewable raw material wood and are manufactured using an environmentally responsible production process. The fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, and thus can fully revert back to nature.
