Can Bamboo or Hemp be Used for the Raw Material?

So far a question we received today (and we promised to answer this question right away here and on Facebook): Using pulp from bamboo to our knowledge should be feasible. With regard to hemp, we unfortunately would have to consult our “experts”. However, Lenzing uses the pulp from eucalyptus trees as the basic resource for TENCEL® – for some good reasons: As Lenzing takes care of sustainable and environmentally responsible farming, the eucalyptus tree-farms used for our fibers suit the best. Not only because our technical experience works the best with pulp from eucalyptus trees, but also because through our long cooperation with the selected eucalyptus-tree farms we can be sure our principles of an eco-friendly handling without exploiting the soil or the eucalyptus trees are followed.
