TENCEL™ Modal is a registered trademark of the Austrian company Lenzing AG. TENCEL™ Modal fibers are mainly produced from birch trees from sustainable forests in Austria and its neighboring countries, in a closed circuit. Birch forests are natural and a renewable source of raw material. The forests are either FSC® (C041246) or PEFC certified. TENCEL™ Modal fibers have also obtained the BioPreferred® designation from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Maybe you are wondering where the cotton comes from? It grows, is picked and spun, in the same place as all our Modal products are sewn - namely in beautiful Turkey.
We are so happy with our Modal blend that we use it in several of our popular products, in addition to our classic rib Modal we use it in: Modal Smooth Rib, Modal Fine Rib, Modal Pointelle, Modal Waffle, Modal Smooth Print and Modal Smooth Solid, which is used for our New Born products.
All our Modal products are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified, which is your guarantee that all parts of a product, down to every single thread, button and other parts, are tested and guaranteed free of harmful substances for both the environment and health. STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a standard that is far more comprehensive than the legislation in Denmark and the EU (REACH) and therefore a good tool for ensuring compliance with legal requirements for harmful chemicals in products.
