Baga Tencel rug from Chhatwal & Jonsson. A beautiful rug that is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen. Tencel is the brand name of Lycocell which is a so-called rainwater fibre. Artificial fibres are fibre made from a natural raw material such as spruce or bamboo cellulose. The cellulose is broken down and then transformed through a chemical process into a textile. The most common artificial fibre is viscose. The lyocell process used in the production of Tencel is much more gentle to the environment than viscose is. Vacuum regularly at low power.
