With TENCEL®, a botanic fiber is, now, making its mark on furniture fabrics, as an alternative to conventional materials. The fiber is made from wood which is a product of photosynthesis. Since the beginning of time, photosynthesis has been basis for life on earth. During photosynthesis, energy from the sun is absorbed by the green chlorophyll, and converted into chemical energy. Dextrose and oxygen are generated from carbon dioxide and water. And wood, the raw material for TENCEL®, is created.
