Cupro belongs to the group of chemical fibres of cellulosic origin.

The production of cupro through the copper-ammonia process is one of the oldest in the field of chemical fibres (discovered in 1857). Since copper is a very expensive resource and environmentally difficult, it’s rarely used anymore and is being replaced by similar chemical fibres such as viscose. Cupro is mainly used as a lining material.

Properties of cupro:
- Similar to viscose
- Breathable
- Not electrostatic
- Absorbs a little less moisture
- Crinkles less
- Easier to clean than viscose

Abbreviation on care tag: CUP, brand Tencel for example
