Tencel is a fibre  derived from wood pulp, often sourced from sustainably grown forests. 

Tencel fibres are also hard wearing and able to manage lower levels of moisture in a residential space. They are also naturally moth resistant and much more resilient than viscose.

The pile moves and crushes when walked on like any silk like material. However it is this silk like quality that allows for beautiful vibrant colours often popular in custom area rugs.
