TENCEL™ fibres, naturally comfortable
Jacaranda’s natural shine collection has the key ingredient TENCEL™ a botanic fibre acclaimed for its lustrous shine. Find out why we believe this ecological fibre helps to create beautiful carpets and rugs.
Integrated into nature’s cycle
• Originates from the renewable raw material of wood
• Manufactured in an environmentally responsible production process
• Fibres are compostable and biodegradeable, so revert back to nature
More comfortable living environment
TENCEL™ fibres inherently contain moisture, even though they feel dry. The humidity of TENCEL™ fibres’ equal 13% compared to only 1% in synthetic fibre. This ability to take in moisture inhibits the growth of bacteria, dust mites and mould. TENCEL™ fibres release moisture back into the air allowing for a cleaner home and a more comfortable living environment.
TENCEL™ fibres are naturally unpalatable to moths and carpet beetle because unlike wool, TENCEL™ fibres are made from cellulose rather than the proteins that moths eat, therefore there is no need to use pesticide treatments on carpets or rugs from TENCEL™ fibres.
Gentle on skin
Viewed under an electron microscope, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres exhibit a smooth surface, giving a silky feel, making it extremely gentle on skin.
TENCEL™ fibres are made from wood pulp only from sustainably grown forests, by a revolutionary process that recycles more than 99% of solvents used, and for this reason it received the European Award for the Environment. This production process means high resource efficiency and low ecological impact.
Refined sheen & brilliant colour
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres have a smooth texture, giving them a refined sheen; the fibres’ smoothness, allow for a higher dye uptake which results in vibrant and deep colour. Jacaranda carpets containing TENCEL™ fibres are beautifully shiny, they offer colour versatility and are silky-soft underfoot.
