Why TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers make for the best bath towels.
If you're looking for towels that are soft, absorbent, durable, and eco-friendly, look no further than Aestate's collection featuring a pile containing 40% TENCEL™ Lyocell. Lyocell is a wood fiber produced using a process that is sustainable and regenerative; it's made from the cellulose of sustainably produced pulpwood trees. Because it's such an environmentally friendly material to manufacture with zero waste involved in production, its use helps us reduce our carbon footprint on this planet while providing you with one of the most luxurious fabrics out there for your bathroom towels!
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are derived from sustainably produced and certified wood. The process used to make Lyocell fibers uses less energy than that of cotton or other traditional cellulosic materials, while also keeping waste gasses at a minimum.
Lyocell is a natural, renewable resource that (literally) grows on trees all over the world, making it an eco-friendly, sustainable fabric. Not only is this type of fiber better for the environment than traditional man-made materials like polyesters or acrylics; it also offers a higher standard of quality when it comes to softness and feel—making your towels even more luxurious!
Also unlike polyester and acrylic fabrics which are processed from petroleum products, TENCEL™ Lyocell has been developed using the latest in technology for a non-polluting process that uses fresh wood pulp instead of coal slurry as its starting point. The result? A unique material with exceptional performance characteristics including moisture absorption, durability and softness – plus environmental benefits too!
The eco-friendly manufacturing process of dissolving pulpwood into a liquid solution and then extruding it through a spinneret to create long continuous filaments is fascinating because it does not use any petrochemical products in the manufacturing process, nor does it use any bleach or dyes to achieve white colouration. Instead, the pulpwood solution is bleached using oxygen-based systems which are environmentally friendly.
Knowing that 40% of your towel (the highest on the market) is made of a high-performing fiber that has been harvested from trees that have been responsibly managed for their entire lives (including replanting) means that you can enjoy your Aestate towels every day knowing they are contributing towards environmental sustainability!
Soft on skin, TENCEL™ Lyocell fabrics are smooth and soft while remaining durable and strong, making them an ideal choice for towels.
TENCEL™ Lyocell has been studied by dermatologists for its benefits for sensitive skin as well as for babies with eczema or diaper rash. It also stands out as being hypoallergenic , making it suitable for people with allergies related to certain chemicals found in other materials used in towels (such as formaldehyde). It provides a soft feel against your skin while still proving extremely high-performing at absorption.
Unlike traditional cotton, towels made with Lyocell fibers actually tend to get softer and more absorbable after washes. And because, you will not need to wash your Aestate towels as often as some other towels, you're able to extend the life of them, as well as preserve energy usage, water usage and washing detergent over time.
TENCEL™ Lyocell is an anti-microbial fiber that has been shown to be excellent at inhibiting bacterial growth, which leads to a reduction in bad odors and the need to wash your towels more often than towels made from other fibers.
Unlike most fabrics, Lyocell is hydrophilic, meaning that water is attracted to the fibers. It's not the other way around. This is why it is such a great choice for towels; it attracts water allowing the towel to absorb moisture much faster than other fabrics. This means when you're drying off after a shower or bath, your towel will absorb moisture much faster than other fabrics. This is great for removing water from wet hair and skin, accelerating the drying process.
The Aestate collection of towels containing TENCEL™ Lyocell are the best products for everyday use. They are soft on your skin and gentle on your hair, making them perfect for drying after a shower or bath - a dip in the pool or a swim in the lake. Their durability makes them ideal for everyday use as well as more strenuous activities such as camping trips or sports games where you need something lightweight and absorbent but also durable enough to last through repeated washing cycles.
