Cupro, which is derived from the same family as rayon, offers a texture very similar to silk. However, unlike silk, Cupro has the advantage of being vegan-friendly, machine-washable and shares the breathable qualities of cotton, making it a great material for our products.
Silk Alternative: With its machine-washable property and elegant texture, Cupro emerges as a vegan and practical substitute for silk.
Breathable: Sharing attributes with cotton, Cupro ensures breathability, making it comfortable for wearers particularly in warmer areas.
Cupro is produced from the cellulose of cotton linters, which are tiny fibers sticking to the cotton seeds, usually discarded when producing cotton. The linters undergo a process where they're dissolved in an ammonia and copper oxide solution. Once dissolved, the resulting solution is spun into fibers, which are then woven or knitted into fabrics.
Normally, cupro can be machine washed on a delicate cycle and hand washing is recommended for best results. Store on hangers rather than folded as they might crease.
To hand wash:
Use a mild detergent and use cold water.
Rinse thoroughly with cold water.
Afterward, roll up in a thick towel to remove water. Do not wring or twist the fabric.
Carefully reshape on a flat surface to air dry.
Silk-like fabrics may shrink slightly after washing and the surface can look a little matte. The best way to restore the fabric is to wash it cold and delicate, pull the length out afterward, hang it dry, and then iron inside out on low heat while pulling the fabric for about 5 mins on each side. This will get the length and the silky, peachy feeling back!
