WHAT IS CUPRO?
Cupro is a “regenerated cellulose” fabric made from cotton waste. It’s in the same family of fabrics as rayon, viscose, Tencel, Modal, and Lycocell, which are all made from plant-based materials that are chemically processed to produce a smooth fabric.
HOW IS CUPRO SUSTAINABLE?
- It’s made from cotton linter, a waste product of cotton. Yay for reducing waste!
- It’s produced in a closed loop like Tencel and Lyocell, which means that the chemicals used can be extracted afterwards and the water can be reused.
- It’s made from 100% plant-based materials, so it’s biodegradable.
- It can be washed in water (either machine-washed or hand-washed), so there’s no need to dry clean
WHAT DOES CUPRO FEEL LIKE?
Soft. So soft. In fact, Cupro is often used as a vegan and machine-washable alternative to silk because it’s smooth and drapes beautifully.
Although it’s in the same family as rayon, it’s breathable like cotton. Its light weight, drape, and breathability makes it ideal for warm weather.
