is the european cousin of tencel. similar to rayon in that it is reprocessed cellulose, but cupro is much more like tencel.

cupro gets its name from cuprammonium that is used to process the wood pulp or cotton linters that are the base material for cupro. like tencel, the base material for cupro is a regenerated cellulose fiber, and the fabric breathes like cotton, drapes beautifully, and feels like silk on your skin.

cupro is not synthetic, nor is it a man-made fabric. it is considered a regenerated fabric, in other words, it is reclaimed from natural products! yay cupro!
