Cupro is a branded product by Asahi Kasei (Japan) better know as Bemberg™. Cupro falls under the umbrella of rayon fibres. It is a semi-synthetic man-made regenerated cellulose fibre made from pre-consumer cotton waste. The fine linter (short downy fibre that enfolds and protects the cotton seed) is a waste product of cotton production which is extracted, dissolved, and transformed into a filament fibre that is woven into a soft, silk-like fabric. It is light, breathable and luxurious to wear. Cupro made by Bemberg™ is almost a 100% zero waste emissions fibre, with any unusable fibre being used for power generation.
