This line of clothing offers natural and functional fabric for the 21st century.

Element Pure baselayers are made with Tencel, a fully biodegradable wood-derived fiber from Austria with the finesse of natural silk and performance of synthetics. Tencel is entirely made from European Union PEFC-managed eucalyptus forests.

Tencel is made from billions of smooth nano-fibrils and exhibits a unique nano pore structure. The resulting fabric is incredibly soft, smooth, breathable, moisture-wicking and resistant to shrinkage. It is extremely antibacterial, and remains odor-free after weeks of continuous use, even under high humidity and perspiration.

The fabric is also hypoallergenic, static-free and exhibits very low wet cling. A small amount of elastane was blended to create the ultimate fabric that moulds seamlessly with a person’s body type for the perfect fit.
