Six Reasons To Switch To Cupro

Six Reasons To Switch To Cupro

Cotton linter is usually discarded as a by-product during the production of cottonseed oil. This linter goes through a rigorous processing phase, and is converted into Cupro fabric. Widely considered to be a vegan alternative to regular silk, the regenerated linter fibers are used to produce Cupro; a shiny fabric that is lightweight, extra soft, and breathable.
 
In addition to these features, here are six reasons to make your switch to Cupro fabric
 
Six reasons to switch to cupro
 
 
1. It’s Breathable
 
Cupro absorbs and releases moisture at a much faster rate than most fabrics, making it a great option for both summer clothes and garments for inner layering during winter.
 
2. It’s Anti-static
 
Cupro gives you an overall comfortable wearing experience. With its near-perfect round cross-section, the fabric causes almost no irritation to one’s skin, even in comparison to cotton. Its high absorption rate helps disperse static discharge easily, even during winters when layered with other fabrics.
 
3. It’s Environmentally Friendly
 
Cupro is biodegradable in nature, making it a greener alternative to synthetic fibers. It cuts down on waste as the fabric itself is made using cotton byproduct. Unlike most fabrics, it takes a much shorter time to decompose in nature by almost halving its volume in a month's time.
 
4. It’s Affordable
 
Cupro may not be as affordable as polyester but it is much more affordable than silk and provides a good value for money in terms of look, life and environment-friendliness.
 
5. It’s Durable
 
Under proper maintenance, Cupro fabric can last for a very long time. For instance, with respect to the Cupro variant used in our Kolam collection, using a low heat iron, never using bleach, and dry-cleaning instead of regular washes, would increase the longevity of the fabric, making the term timeless collection true.
 
6. It Looks The Part
 
Produced from cotton linter, Cupro has extremely fine fibers that give it uniform thickness, giving you a luxurious drape. It also has good color reproduction capabilities in comparison to other similar fabrics, making it an all-round great fabric.
