TENCEL™ shorty



The shorty is the cousin of our S M K TENCEL™ STOCKINGS, between the traditional ballet tights and the yoga leggings.
Since we have never been friend with pressuring elastics at waist (thank you for our stomachs) we created a new pattern and sewing method to allow our high waist to be elastic free! Hell Yeah!
The real only difference is that it is mid-tight length 😉

The textile is sleek, ribbed and super soft (LENZING TENCEL™, see below textile informations)

The textile has some little invisible stripes

About fabric, you may wonder about what is TENCEL™?

TENCEL™ is made from wood cellulose, it is a trademark created by Lenzing group that ensure the sustainability of your Lyocell.
In a nutshell, It s kind of viscose but in a far more sustainable way, here is why:

TENCEL™ is derived from sustainable wood chips, its wood chips used are certified by the Forest Stewardship council   FSC Certification .

– 99% of the process water is used in closed loop, and god knows how much water & solvents are used in the production of textile, so this is a very important characteristic.
– its production has low ecological impact, it requires less water & energy to produce than most of bio-fiber textiles (such as viscose)
 biodegradable, TENCEL™ can fully revert to nature (but guess what? It actually depends how your country is handling trash, you can have a biodegradable material but if it isn’t in direct contact with soil or water, then it cannot biodegrade properly)
 recycle its own waste to produce electricity and thermal energy, there we go 🙂
– Lenzing is planning to go carbon neutral by 2050, boss goal!
– as a textile, TENCEL™ is breathable, durable & absorbent, we just love the way it flows and shine

Please avoid purchasing "viscose" that does not hold this Certification as non-certified viscose is causing mass deforestation, often using endangered forests. Learn more via Canopyplanet
