eco friendly clothing made with Tencel is a huge hit

Earlier this year we introduced a men’s dress shirt by Bugatchi Uomo made with Tencel. It’s been a huge hit. In softness it is equal to or better than the much loved modal rayon blends. It has great moisture management and is recommended for anyone with sensitive skin.

TENCEL® absorbs excess liquid and quickly releases it again into the atmosphere. Nanofibrils are the key to the performance possibilities of TENCEL®. Traditionally,  natural products breathe more so they keep you cooler than man made fabrics. Key factors to making Tencel clothing keep you cool:

  1. Natural cooling
  2. Nanofibrils
  3. Outstanding moisture management 
  4. Inhibits bacteria growth

TENCEL® for sensual Smoothness

Smoothness across the board. A comparison of the fiber surfaces makes the difference patently obvious. TENCEL® fiber has a smoother and more supple surface than wool or cotton. Wool tends to have a scaly surface, while cotton is irregular and rough.




Reassuring Results for Sensitive Skin

TENCEL® is a godsend for anyone with sensitive skin. The combination of a smooth fiber surface and excellent moisture absorption creates a positive environment for healthy skin, making TENCEL® ideal for anyone with sensitive skin.

According to recent dermatological studies, wearing clothing made of TENCEL® significantly improves comfort and promotes a feeling of well being.* (Dermatological study of the textile compatibility of TENCEL®, 2004, Univ.-Prof. Dr. T.L. Diepgen, Heidelberg, Germany) Also, TENCEL® is chemical free, an important factor for sensitive skin and another asset in comparison to other fibers of a natural origin.

Tencel clothing for sensitive skin

Bugatchi Uomo offers several Tencel clothing products, which are particularly appealing for those with sensitive skin. Tencel is trademark of Lenzing fibers.

Studies have shown that 50% of women and 40% of men testify to having a sensitive skin. The rise in skin diseases such as neurodermatitis and psoriasis is alarming. Sensitive skin reacts particularly quickly to heat and cold as well as to physical and chemical irritations. This results in a reddening of the skin, itchiness and skin irritations. TENCEL® has the ability to help people with sensitive skin. The cellulose fiber is gentle to the skin and ensures a natural feeling of well-being. The combination of the following properties: moisture management, a cooling effect and a smooth fiber surface, prevents skin irritations and helps to maintain the balance of the skin.

Compared with cotton, TENCEL® feels much cooler when the temperature rises due to the particularly smooth surface and the high moisture uptake.

In particular people with sensitive skin frequently suffer in warm temperatures. Independent studies
have revealed that a cooling effect has a positive influence on one’s well-being.

Studies have proven that wearing TENCEL® clothes can lead to a significant improvement in well-being. A smooth fiber surface, thermal regulation and a high moisture absorption all favor a positive skin climate. Furthermore, textiles containing chemicals negatively effect particularly sensitive skin. TENCEL® is naturally pure and not burdened with chemicals.

What is Tencel? How does it compare to other Bugatchi fabrics?

TENCEL® is Lenzing Fibers’ brand name for lyocell. A major break-through was made with the development of the unique nanofibril structure of this fiber. TENCEL®, made from wood pulp cellulose, offers a unique combination of the most desirable properties of man made and natural fibers: soft as silk, strong as polyester, cool as linen, warm as wool and as absorbent as cotton. Quite simply a “break-through” fiber.

The Bugatchi Tencel shirt introduced for the Fall/Winter 2008- 2009 season feels at least as soft as their high modal rayon content shirts, maybe even softer. It’s definitely a lightweight fabric. There is some stretchiness to the shirt, but minimal.

Lenzing calls Tencel® environmentally friendly and a good choice for people with sensitive skin. However, process of dying the fabric may include treatments with chemicals that could affect your skin. CEOgolfshop has never received any negative customer feedback about any Bugatchi shirts. In fact, most customers rave about how the shirts are the best they have ever worn,

Tencel garments are often recommended as good for travel because they pack light and retain their shape. Many Tencel® pieces are machine washable; though you should follow the label’s instructions for specific wear. If washed in cold water, Tencel® garments shrink about 3% with the first washing, but then won’t shrink in future washes. Tencel® also dries quickly, so drip-drying it may not take long.

The Tencel fabric compares favorably to silk shirts as well. Most people like silk for the hand feel. The Tencel shirts have a superb hand feel, but also are easier to care for and probably hold their shape better in varying weather, especially high humidity.
