Triacetate is a semi-synthetic fibre that’s regenerated from wood pulp, then processed with chemicals. It is created in a closed loop process, exclusively by Mitsubishi in Japan, that recycles solvent as it is processed. It has a relaxed, flowing feeling that is long-lasting and keeps its properties for years of wear. It resists shrinking and wrinkling (so it doesn’t need much ironing), it’s machine washable, and it doesn’t pill or produce static.
We use triacetate most commonly in women’s products, and often blended with other fibres to create a unique fabric. It can be found in dresses, blouses, trousers, and jackets.
