This fabric is a beautifully soft mix of viscose , virgin wool and cupro, with an twill texture.

Cupro is a cellulose fabric made from cotton waste. It is made using the  tiny silky cotton fibres, that are too small to spin. Much like Tencel and Modal, cupro is a plant-based material that is chemically processed to produce the resulting fabric. Double sided b=nay blue on one side and charcoal grey on the reverse.

Cupro is said to have all the positive qualities of silk: it’s silky-smooth and drapes just like the luxurious material. First invented in the 1900s in Germany, cupro is also commonly known as ‘Bemberg’ (from the German manufacturer, J.P. Bemberg).

This is a deadstock fabric. Deadstock is fabric left over from the fashion Industry, many are directly from the designers workshop.
