We believe fabrics with TENCEL™ fibers are a miracle.

So much so, that it is the basis of everything we make here at Stripe & Stare.

The reasons are many, but we will sum it up for you.

The Pulp-to-fibre Process

TENCEL™ Modal fibers are produced by Eco Soft technology, an environmentally responsible choice offering exquisite softness to textiles.

The technology uses an integrated process, from pulp to fiber, which has high recovery rates of process ingredients and generates very low emissions to air.

Our Micro Modal Fibres

All of our products are made with a minimum of 95% TENCEL™ Modal x Micro fibers. Micro technology offers an even finer quality of lightness and exquisite softness to cellulosic fibers, producing lightweight fabrics.         

Modal fibers with Micro technology offer efficient moisture absorption to ensure natural skin and a long-lasting comfort.

Long-Lasting Softness

All TENCEL™ Modal fibers are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.


TENCEL™ Modal fibers naturally manage the transportation of moisture, enhancing fabrics by keeping your skin feeling pleasantly comfortable. Derived from natural material, the sub-structure of modal fibers is structured to regulate the absorption and release of moisture. This contributes to fabrics breathability that support the body’s natural temperature regulating.

Long-Lasting Softness

Exhibiting high flexibility, TENCEL™ Modal wood-based fibers offer a long-lasting quality of exquisite softness. Owing to the fiber’s sleek cross-section, TENCEL™ Modal fibers enhance the soft touch of fabrics even after repeated washing. Measurements and hand evaluations of softness show that TENCEL™ Modal fibers feel twice as soft as cotton. The softness lasts longer and is able to withstand repeated wash and dry cycles compared to cotton.

The Perfect Knicker Fabric

The fabrics with TENCEL™ Modal x Micro fibers were perceived as more pleasant in frictional strain tests on human skin than cotton and polyester fabrics. They also displayed a far lower frictional coefficient under humid conditions, making TENCEL™ Modal most recommendable for textiles worn next to the skin.
