A little bit about

Tencel™

We use sustainable fabrics across all of our collections. For our Dad's Hawaiian shirts, we choose Tencel.

This page will tell you a little bit about why we love Tencel and why it's the perfect fabric for shirts.

Tencel™

So, what is tencel?

Tencel is a type of rayon, like viscose and modal. These cellulose fibres are all made in a similar way: by dissolving wood pulp and using a special drying process called spinning.

Before drying, the wood chips are mixed with a solvent to produce a wet mixture. This mixture is then pushed through small holes to form threads, chemically treated, then the lengths of fibre are spun into yarn and woven into cloth.

Why do we love it?

Tencel has lots of amazing qualities that mean it's perfect for shirts.

1. It's soft yet structured, so creates a naturally flattering shape

2. It's sustainable and made from natural fibres

3. It's breathable, meaning it helps reduce sweat and keeps you cool
