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 x 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.
