Tavex has launched a collection of Cotton Less Denim! It is achieved with the use of Tencel® fiber instead of the traditional cotton blend.
Like cotton, Tencel® is made from plant materials, however its manufacturing requires less energy and water than cotton. As a naturally derived fiber, Tencel® is also biodegradable. In addition, Lenzing sources its wood from certified and controlled suppliers to guarantee the sustainable managed plantations. Tencel® has incredible absorption characteristics, it is 50% more absorbent than cotton so it requires a lot less dye than cotton. Also, it is more breathable and less susceptible to odorous bacteria growth.
