care guide - cupro
caring for cupro
you can wash cupro garments by hand in cold or lukewarm water (careful: cupro shrinks in hot water!). be sure to use a gentle soap and do not rub or wring the item. the fabric will harden slightly after washing. this is normal! you can make your item flowy soft again with ironing on low heat (inside out or the items will turn shiny) or with a steamer. lay the item flat or hang to dry. do not tumble dry!
what is cupro?
cupro is made of regenerated cellulose fibers from recycled cotton linter. this is the part of the cotton seed that is too small to spin - so you're using what would otherwise go to waste!
why love cupro?
apart from being environmentally friendly (it is even biodegradable!) this fabric is a dream to wear. it is flowy, soft and breathable. it also regulates temperatures (like cotton) but drapes like silk. it is buttery soft!
the material is processed and manufactured in a sustainable cycle system. this means, that the water that is used will be reused over and over again. this reduces the environmental impact greatly.
