Cupro Fabric: A sustainable silk alternative

In the rapidly evolving world of sustainable fashion, sustainable fabrics have become more renowned. Let’s delve into the intriguing material, cupro, which is gaining recognition as a sustainable and versatile fabric.


What is Cupro?

Cupro, also known as cuprammonium rayon is a semi-synthetic fibre derived from the cellulose of recycled cotton, specifically the fluffy fibres surrounding cotton seeds. These fluffy fibres are known as linter fibres (Hodakael, n.d).

How is Cupro Made?

Cupro is crafted through a meticulous process of dissolving the linter fibres with a cuprammonium solution. The cuprammonium linter fibres are then extruded into fine filaments. These filaments are then spun into yarns, which are then woven into fabric obtaining the silky Cupro fabric (Hodakael, n.d).


Sustainable and Luxurious Cupro

Now to answer the burning question, “How is Cupro Sustainable?”.

First and foremost, as a by-product of cotton, the production of Cupro reduces waste in the textile industry. Linter fibres which are originally discarded after production are now used and given a new purpose (Hodakael, n.d).

On top of that its production process requires lesser amounts of water during production as compared to viscose (Blackburn, 2005).

Additionally, unlike its soft and smooth counterpart silk, the production of cupro does not use animals or insects. Hence Cupro is vegan and cruelty-free, minimising ecological harm.

Lastly, at the end of its lifecycle, Cupro breaks down naturally. This means the material is fully biodegradable hence reducing its impact on the environment (Matthes, 2020).

How to Care for Your Beloved Cupro Pieces

Cupro is relatively low maintenance.

Hand washing or machine washing using a gentle cycle with cold water is the most optimal way to care for your Cupro pieces.

During washing avoid using harsh chemicals and bleach. To retain its softness and colour use mild detergent when washing your beloved Cupro clothes.

When ironing, avoid high temperatures as Cupro ignites at around 82°C. 

Therefore, it is recommended to iron on low heat or use a steam iron with the most gentle setting to maintain Cupro’s lustrous appearance.


Cupro is not just a fabric; it's a sustainable fashion revolution. With its luxurious texture, eco-friendly manufacturing process, and minimal care requirements, Cupro stands as a symbol of elegance and ethical fashion. Choose Cupro for a wardrobe that doesn't just look good but also feels good for our planet.
