Here's a good run down of some interesting textiles out there right now:
- Cupro: I got wind of this guy while browsing the Acne selection on Revolve. Apparently "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."
- Lyocell:, or brand name Tencel, is basically tree pulp. Awesome!
- Acetate: our old friend (lots of wonderful '80s dresses are composed of this fabric) is also a regenerated fiber from tree pulp.
- Banana fibre: for kimonos. Need we say more?
