Think forward. Feel better.

Tecawork® Ecogreen is a range of fabrics for workwear that are not only more sustainable, but also take wearer comfort to a higher level – a unique combination.

Ecogreen fabrics are made with TENCEL™ lyocell 100% bio-cellulosic fibers from FSC wood and 100% mechanically recycled polyester from PET bottles.

In addition, these fabrics have a high bio-cellulosic content, providing an unparalleled softness and supple feel. 

The fabrics also have excellent moisture-regulating properties. The fabric is strong, has high mechanical properties and comes with excellent colour retention capabilities, ensuring long-lasting looks even after repeated industrial laundering.

100% green fibers 

We manufacture the fabrics entirely from 100% TENCEL™ Lyocell from sustainable sourced 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

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

  • Better Breathability
    Very comfortable: thanks to the Lyocell fiber, 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.
  • Soft & flexible
    The fabric has a smooth surface and is flexible: it feels more pleasant to the skin.


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