Cupro: the eco-friendly fabric that “is good” for skin and environment
Cupro is sustainable, light and shiny: an ally to green fashion and to those who want to feel and be good. What to know about this fabric for clothing
It is also called “vegetable silk” due to its characteristics: soft and fluid, it has got an exclusive “peachy” finishing that you would expect from a refined and luxury fabric like silk.
We are talking about Cupro, a one-hundred-per-cent green fabric for clothing: in fact, this fibre derives from the cotton wool and then becomes cellulose, it is biodegradable and fully recyclable.
The main characteristics of Cupro:
- It is smooth and breathable
- It is pleasant to touch and to be put on
- It is fresh
- It is natural and hypoallergenic
- It has got thermoregulating properties
Concerning pieces of clothing, Cupro is ideal to realise dresses, shirts and soft and fluctuating outwear, due to its softness and capability to drape gently, lending a beautiful silhouette. An elegant choice, then, but comfortable too, when we search for a look that is sophisticated and comfortable at the same time, functional and green.
Thanks to its thermoregulating properties, Cupro is very used in summer, but it can be used in autumn and winter too because it is able to keep the heat without dispersing it.
