Sustainable icon

We manufacture the fabrics entirely from 100% bio-cellulose from FSC-wood and 100% mechanically recycled polyester from PET bottles. This means that all the negatives related to the production of cotton, like depletion of water resources and massive pesticide usage, are abandoned. With the use of recycled polyester, no virgin raw materials are used. 

Safe & certified components

We assure that for our fabrics, we only use safe and certified materials. It guarantees the sourcing of the materials we use, it also assures that the fabrics are free of hazardous components. 

More comfort

TenCate Tecawork™ - Ecogreen™ fabrics are developed with a full focus on quality. This new fabric is not only sustainable, it is also more comfortable: 

Moisture icon

Better breathability 
Very comfortable: thanks to the bio-cellulosic fibre, perspiration is immediately absorbed in the fabric, up to 50% more compared to cotton. The strongly improved moisture-regulating capacity speeds up vaporation to the air. It keeps the skin cooler and drier. It also slows down the growth of bacteria. The result: more comfortable and hygienic workwear. 

Flexible icon

Soft & flexible 
The fabric has a smooth surface and is flexible: it feels more pleasant to the skin.


Durable icon

The fabric is durable, strong and industrially washable: professional industrial laundries require quality fabrics that stay in a good condition throughout their lifespan. TenCate wants to meet these requirements. We test our fabrics extensively.
