Crepe textured weave with a crisp, yet soft hand. It drapes nicely without being ‘sloppy’, a durable fabric with less creasing and a more full texture.
A mid-weight fabric with a textured detail, that drapes beautifully. 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. Sounds simple enough—but what kind of environmental footprint does this process have?
Tencel lyocell is better for the environment than other similar fabrics, but not more sustainable as top-tier fabrics like organic linen or recycled cotton.
In production, Tencel requires less energy and water than conventional cotton. As a plant-derived fibre, Tencel is also biodegradable, but check that it isn’t mixed with other synthetic fibres like nylon when it comes time to dispose of the garment. Although, like most materials, it is often coloured with harmful conventional dyes, Tencel requires a lot less dye than cotton. It is also pure white when produced, so no bleaching is necessary and undyed is always an option.

Harlow, a clothing brand headquartered in Brunswick, Australia, is committed to quality and durability. Our garments are crafted using premium materials and the expertise of skilled artisans, ensuring longevity. We prioritize ethical manufacturing practices by partnering with local accredited makers. We strive to maximise sustainability, continuously working towards a more eco-friendly business model.
Recently, we implemented a significant sustainable change by transitioning to a preorder system. This shift allows us to produce only what is specifically ordered, enabling us to better plan and reduce excess stock. As a result, we no longer have sales events. Moreover, this preorder approach benefits the planet by ensuring that every item we create already has a loving home waiting for it. We believe that by being cherished and well-maintained over the years, our pieces contribute to a reduction in overall fashion consumption, paving the way for a more sustainable future.
