Studies in Fibers: The Tenacity of Tencel
Studies in Fibers: The Tenacity of Tencel

When selecting the highest quality materials for our carpets, one of our favorite fibers to use is Tencel. Created by Austrian textile company Lenzing, the term Tencel is actually the company’s brand name for a generic fiber known as lyocell. Tencel has botanical origins; it’s made from the cellulose found in raw wood pulp, then converted into fabric through the use of intricate nanotechnology. 

Utilized in everything from bandages and blankets to clothing and towels, it is precisely Tencel’s versatility that makes it a perfect fiber candidate for some of STARK’s best carpets. Its durability, as well as its capacity to absorb moisture, makes it a thoroughly practical choice for flooring.

Tencel fibers are also distinguished by their exceptional dye affinity, which allows for vivid colors to come through. As a natural fiber, it also has the ability to provide STARK carpets with not only striking hues, but an authentic silky softness.

Blending Tencel with other fibers such as wool, cotton, or linen also produces a variety of luxurious textures. Without distracting from the design of the carpet, Tencel’s relaxed shine adds a tasteful difference to our carpets that other materials are unable to produce.
