Our team is thrilled to announce that we've added a new fabrication to our site: Eucalyptus Lyocell (also known as Tencel). We wanted to share a bit about the switch, and what prompted us to choose this material.
It is always our goal to create the best, most luxurious, and most sustainable experience we can for our customers. And as we were preparing re-stocks, we thought that it might be time to try something new.
So, why Eucalyptus?
Well, it has many similar benefits to the bamboo bedding you know and love from Sijo, but with an even more luxurious texture. This, along with increased technology in moisture wicking and temperature regulation creates an elevated sleep experience.
Eucalyptus Lyocell is also known by Tencel, which is a trademarked name and material. With that trademark comes performance technology and even more benefits when it comes to the material's breathability.
What exactly are all of the benefits?
Eucalyptus bedding is cooling, super soft, breathable, hypoallergenic, skin and hair friendly (no tugging or premature wrinkles here!), and static free. Stay tuned for a deep dive on all of our benefits!
What about sustainability?
We considered that, too. Our eucalyptus is sourced sustainably from Central European farms, specifically Austria, which means it is not contributing to deforestation. We also use a closed-loop process, meaning our organic solvents are recycled, and that we minimize water usage and waste in our manufacturing process. As you've come to know, all Sijo materials are Oeko-Tex 100 certified.
When it comes down to it, we want to keep helping make healthier, more sustainable choices for our your sleep and home experience.
