Made to Last with Tencel

At Kin Made, we believe that sustainability starts from the point of conception in the design and the selection of materials. With our new blog series 'Made to Last', we explore the different fabrications we choose to use that are gentler on the environment. These usually are the the most natural, earth-friendly fibres that we look for in our sourcing process. In this first post of the series, we share the wonders of Tencel itself, from its sustainable origins to its environmental merits.

What is Tencel made of?
Sourced from responsibly managed wood pulp, Tencel stands as a testament to innovative, eco-conscious fashion. Eucalyptus, beech, and spruce trees are carefully selected for their rapid growth and minimal environmental impact, setting the stage for a fabric that can be used consciously.
