Bamboo and Tencel
Bamboo VS Tencel:
Woven bamboo fabric is made from the pulp of bamboo plants, known for its fast growth and natural sustainability. It is soft, luxurious, breathable, and has excellent moisture-wicking properties. On the other hand, woven Tencel fabric is derived from wood pulp, often sourced from eucalyptus trees. It is also soft, smooth, breathable, and has good moisture management properties. Both fabrics are sustainable options, but bamboo fabric has a silkier texture, while Tencel fabric is known for its cooling effect.
When ironing woven bamboo fabric, it is best to use a very cool setting or opt for an alternative method such as a stand steamer to remove wrinkles. High heat can potentially damage the fabric. Similarly, for woven Tencel fabric, it is recommended to use a low heat setting or consider using a stand steamer to safely remove wrinkles without subjecting the fabric to excessive heat.
When washing woven bamboo fabric, follow the manufacturer’s instructions and opt for a gentle machine wash with cold water and a mild detergent. Air drying is recommended. For woven Tencel fabric, also adhere to the care instructions, using a gentle machine wash with cold water and mild detergent. Opt for air drying.
For long-term storage of woven bamboo fabric, keeping it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight is advisable to prevent discolouration or damage. Store woven Tencel fabric in a cool, dry place away from sunlight to preserve its colour and quality. It is best to avoid hanging these fabrics to prevent stretching, and folding them gently without creating sharp creases.
We advise you follow the care instructions that are sewn into the side of each garment.
