TENCEL™ Made to Move Shorts
They suit low, medium and high intensity training activities thanks to their ultra-comfortable and highly breathable fabric composition.
Designed with love in Sweden, all materials sourced and ethically made in Europe.
- Machine-wash at max. 40 degrees Celsius
- Don’t bleach
- Don’t tumble-dry
- Iron in low temperatures up to 110 degrees Celsius, leave out the prints and embroidery
- Don’t dry-clean
- Wash inside-out with like colors
- Use mild detergent and no fabric softener (we recommend choosing environmentally - & health friendly detergents)
- The shorts might slightly shrink after the first wash due to its natural origin (we considered this shrinkage in our sizing guide)
- The shorts can be used for all kinds of workout intensities and many activities. We don’t recommend using them for mountain climbing, very long cycling trips or any other high-abrasion activities to maintain their beautiful touch and look.
- Due to its natural origin it is normal that small pieces of the natural fiber can appear on the surface. These will be hardly visible and prove that we are serious and proud about its natural heritage.
- "End of life" and disposal tips: If it is still in good shape - swap with friends, resell as second-hand, repair or bring to your local tailor for repair. If it is very worn out and can no longer be used, best to bring it to a local textile collection or recycling station. It can even be composted, but make sure you understand how to compost in the right way.
We wanted to design the only shorts you will ever need. These shorts combine the beautiful wood-based material of our signature long leggings with unlimited freedom of motion.
Ultra-comfortable premium wood fabric
These shorts are made from the same unbelievably comfortable and breathable material as our long leggings. They fit like a second skin and let you stay focused on your workout without distractions.
Stay confident with squat proof design
Ultra-stretchy and non see-through fabric that gives you confidence during all your workout moves. Even during deep squats.
High waist that doesn't slide down
Flattering high waist that keeps you tucked in and your shorts in place when you do your yoga moves. These shorts will never let you down.
There has been so much attention to detail in every aspect of the process and it shows. The shorts fit like a glove, feel amazing and I never want to take them off! I'm mainly using them in the gym and have enjoyed the style and the fact that I stay cool and sweat free during my sessions.
I'm absolutely loving them.
The material is really strong yet soft and feels great on your skin.
I tested them in the gym and very pleased with the result!
Great attention to detail.
Very comfortable for a workout or just wearing it daily. Looking great and feels amazing!
TENCEL™ is the main material we use - all our workout shirts are made from 100% TENCEL™, and our leggings are mostly made from TENCEL™ as well. It is a lyocell fiber derived from sustainable wood sources invented by the Austrian wood fiber company Lenzing. The production doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals, and the water and environmentally harmless solvent are reused at a rate of more than 99% during production. TENCEL™ lyocell fibers are certified as biodegradable and compostable, meaning that they can fully revert back to nature, and in a relatively short amount of time depending on the environment. That's a key difference to plastics like polyester that can take centuries, or more, to decompose.
The wood pulp comes from sustainably managed trees including eucalyptus, pine, spruce and birch trees, mainly from Europe. The wood is certified according to recognized sustainability criteria, such as the FSC® and PEFC™ standards. Lenzing and Tripulse support the preservation of endangered and primeval forests. That means you can rest assured that no wood or pulp is derived from primeval forests from the Amazon Region, Canada or Russia, or from any of the other endangered rainforests in Indonesia or West Africa. The timber made use of is generated by thinning, a practice applied in sustainable foresting. That means that the timber that is unsuitable for high-grade products, such as furniture, finds a meaningful purpose in the production of botanic fibers.
Our dyed TENCEL™material is also free from harmful chemicals and Oekotex Standard 100 certified.
Instead of using regular elastane to give our tights the stretchiness they need for high performance, we use a more sustainable version instead. Roica® V550 is a compostable version of elastane and is cradle-to-cradle certified with the material health category “gold”. That means it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals and is biodegradable. After having turned every stone, with the current available materials out there, some form of stretch material needs to be added when making durable and high-performing tights. We use a special TENCEL™ composition that is knitted in a certain way to allow for more stretch, but even this was not enough to create tights where extreme mobility is needed. So that is why we are using Roica® V550, in our eyes the second most sustainable solution instead of using 100% TENCEL™.
Natural rubber & organic cotton drawstring
We use a combination of 60% certified organic cotton and 40% natural rubber for the elastic waistbands in the tights, instead of regular elastane. The organic cotton comes from Turkey, the rubber from Malaysia. Our Germany-based supplier is GOTS-certified ensuring an environmentally- and socially responsible production in all processing stages, the use of organic fibers, and no use of toxic chemicals.
Organic cotton care labels
All our care labels that are attached to the inside of our products are made from organic cotton and printed with water-based ink.
Water based ink prints
All our prints are made from water-based inks which are eco- and health-friendly as they contain water instead of plastics and no harmful chemicals. They are “Organic 100 Content Standard” certified.
Dyes & finishing
A big part of the pollution and harmful effects of the textile industry happens during the textile dyeing and finishing stage. In this stage lots of chemicals are usually being used to achieve certain color vibrancy and functionality, such as water-resistance, anti-bacterial properties etc. As some of these chemicals can be very toxic, this is a phase that can potentially compromise on our health and wellbeing.
In order to avoid these harmful effects, we first of all choose materials that are “by nature” free from toxic chemicals and that as much as possible naturally have performance-friendly features, such as odor resistance and breathability. And for this, TENCEL™ (described in the section “ our materials”) is the perfect material. In regards to functionality, it is naturally breathable, odor resistant and has a smooth touch, without having to add any harsh finishing to achieve these features.
All our materials including the dyes and finishing are Oekotex Standard 100 certified, meaning they don’t contain any harmful chemicals. On top of that, they are REACH conform. REACH is a regulation of the EU created to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, and ensures that the substance can be safely used without harming the end customer.
Our mission is to keep on innovating and pushing the boundaries also when it comes to using the most sustainable, health-friendly and at the same time functional dyes and finishing. So where we are at is really good, however, we believe that there is always room to keep on innovating and to becoming even better.
