What is cupro and how is cupro made?


Cupro is a regenerated cellulose fabric made from recycled cotton linter (adherent cotton fibers that grow directly on the seeds), the fluffy fiber around the seeds of the plant. Because the linter fibers are too small to be spun, they are usually discarded during cotton production. Cupro fabric, on the other hand, is made by dissolving the fibers in a viscous copper oxide solution called cuprammonium, hence the name. Linter can then be spun into new fibers and woven into this smooth fabric.

Sustainability of cupro textiles

Because cupro is a byproduct of cotton, fibers that would otherwise be thrown away can be put to new use. In addition, the material is biodegradable. Cupro fabrics are considered a natural product and consist of 100% plant-based materials that break down naturally and do not remain in landfills for up to a thousand years like synthetic clothing. Similar to Tencel, production takes place in a closed loop, meaning that chemicals used in production are extracted and recycled several times, while the water can also be reused. It is circular economy par excellence!

How can the Cupro material be cared for?

Cupro fabrics are easy to wash. There is no need for dry cleaning like silk. And since Cupro is a purely natural product, no plastic microfibers are released when machine washed.

How do cupro dresses feel?

The fiber structure of the fabric also allows it to feel light on the skin. Cupro fabrics are as comfortable as silk on the skin and their cooling effect makes them particularly suitable for summer.

Does cupro wrinkle?

Cupro is considered a wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material. In addition, it normally does not need to be cleaned.
