Cupro is a regenterated cellulose fultra fine silky fibre that stick to the seeds of the cotton plant after it’s been ginned (fluffed up). The fibre is then dissolved in a solution which included copper oxide hence the name cupro. Often used as a silk substitute, cupro drapes beautifully yet can be machine washed. Cupro breathes and regulates body temperate like cotton. Similar to Tencel cupro is hypoallergenic, antistatic and is resistant to stretching.
Tencel is a fibre of botanic origins, extracted from the raw tree wood. Tencel is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen. The extremely eco-friendly closed loop process where all solvents are recycled meant tencel production received the highest "European Award for the Environment".
