Unbeatably soft and luxuriously lightweight, this semi-synthetic plant based fabric deriving from wood cellulose is a new season favourite thanks to its flattering finish. Breathable and cool to wear, a touch of viscose is the perfect light layer for the upcoming warmer months.
Standing as one of cotton's most formidable competitors, viscose is often used as a plant-based substitute for silk due to its breathable, lightweight properties and luxurious, shiny appeal.
The semi-synthetic fabric starts out as a plant material and is made from processed wood cellulose deriving from trees such as bamboo and eucalyptus. Both plants require very little water, little to no fertilizer, and are self-regenerative requiring no need to replant after harvesting.
Admired for its lightweight and sumptuous finish, viscose is naturally absorbent and breathable with moisture-repelling properties. Flattering and cool to wear, this innovative material injects a luxurious touch into our viscose designs.
Despite its light weight and ultra-soft texture, viscose is highly durable when dry and retains body heat well. On top of this, it is non-allergenic and hygienic to wear. Admire the smooth yet robust characteristics in our new viscose range.
Spun from the same Austrian spinner as our lyocell products (Lenzing), our new 100% viscose Lightweight Culottes also feature an elastic waistband made in Spain from recycled polyester and natural rubber. Collectively, the spinners and weavers used for this garment hold accreditations from FSC, OEKOTEX 100, ECOVERA and GRS.
