This garment was made using Cupro
- Cupro is a “regenerated cellulose” fabric, made from cotton linter, which is a waste product of cotton.
- It’s produced in a closed loop system like Tencel, which means that the chemicals used can be extracted afterwards and the water can be reused. This reduces chemical effluent to almost zero.
- It is lightweight and drapes beautifully and has a similar feel to silk.
- Due to its cotton nature it is breathable, and unlike silk it can be washed in the washing machine.
