As we mentioned before in one of our previous blog posts about TENCEL ™ Lyocell, cotton is still the preferred fabric used to produce clothing. Although cotton is a natural material from nature, it is not particularly sustainable. On the contrary, large amounts of water and chemicals are used to process cotton, which is not good for our planet – even if it is organic cotton.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are therefore a much better material to use and a more natural choice. Lyocell fibers are made in what is called a “Closed loop cycle”, where 99% of the water is recycled in what you process the wood fibers. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are recognized as one of the world’s most sustainable materials, as the fibers are incredibly environmentally friendly and the fabric itself is compostable over time. You can read more about the TENCEL™ Lyocell here.
And unlike many other Lyocell fibers, the entire process is quality assured under the TENCEL™ brand, which ensures the high quality and sustainability. TENCEL™ uses wood from forests in Europe that are PEFC™ and FSC® certified.
TENCEL™ Lyocell at Groomi
At Groomi, our entire underwear line is based on TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers, which is an OekoTex certified material and is a sustainable alternative to the manufacture of clothing. It is not just a natural and sustainable choice, but the material brings some amazing properties with it!
Our boxer shorts have as much as 96% TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers, which are made from 3rd generation TENCEL™ Lyocell beech wood fibers, which are both sweat-absorbent and bactericidal. The fabric is breathable for the skin and keeps our boxer shorts comfortable, cool and dry throughout the day, while reducing bacterial growth. The high amount of wood fibers makes them soft and flexible, and much more comfortable to wear.
Our boxers are made with flatlocking stitching at the abdomen to ensure the most comfortable fit. We have combined it with a flexible and slightly thicker elastic around the waist, which means that it does not bend and open up at the back. 16 prototypes of TENCEL™ Lyocell Fiber boxer have been made to hit the perfect boxer shorts for you and your needs. And now we are here and expect sales start during summer
