Cupro (Bemberg) has been made by Asahi Kasei in Japan for 85 years. The raw material for cupro comes from cotton linter, which is what is left behind when the cotton lint is removed from the seed and made into cotton yarn. Asahi Kasei has a GRS certificate to account for the origin of the cupro fibres, as well as for their traceable production system to show that they use the fibre/processing waste to generate power.
The material is soft to the touch, with many functional properties. It controls moisture and stays breathable, making it temperature-regulating year round. This means it stays warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. It is also resistant to static electricity. The consistency of the fibre is able to absorb dye well, meaning the colour stays vibrant for longer. Cupro is used in the lining of some of our products such as suiting and outerwear. We also use it in woven pieces like dresses and shirting.
