Cupro

What is Cupro?

Cupro is a semi-synthetic fabric derived from a part of the cotton plant: cotton linter – the ultrafine, silky fibers that stick to the seeds of the cotton plant after it is been ginned. The cotton linter undergoes a process to remove any impurities and yield a product that is pure cellulose. Cupro combines the positive qualities of both natural (cotton) and semi-synthetic (cellulosic) fibers. As Cupro fiber is obtained by recycling cotton waste, it promotes more efficient use of our limited natural resources. Cupro has just received the GRS certification (Global Recycled Standard).
