Bemberg™ Cupro

Cupro is a fabric made from cotton linter; soft fibers enveloping the cotton seed. These minuscule and silky fibers are usually discarded as they are far too small to be spun into material. To create Cupro, these fibers are soaked in a mixture of copper and ammonium before being spun into a material fiber. While in this state, our factory removes all animal protein from the production lines to achieve a silk-like look and feel without the use of animal by-products. We use Asahi Kasei’s production process allowing a zero-waste policy and closed-loop manufacturing which fully recovers all solvents. Any cellulosic waste is used as fuel to generate electricity.

Bamboo is a grass, from the evergreen plant family. It’s the fastest growing plant on this planet which is great for regenerating supplies. No pesticides nor fertilizers are needed during the growth of bamboo as it has natural properties of bacteriostasis and deodorization, which means it doesn’t attract worms nor rot; protecting our soils and endangered species. Bamboo can help us make cleaner air, produce more water, and additionally provide a sustainable alternative to plastic. Bamboo fibers are spun into a yarn to make fabric. These fibers have micro-gaps, which make it softer than cotton and increases its moisture absorption. Its benefits include: wicking moisture away from the body keeping the body cool in the warm months, and providing warmth in the colder months, antibacterial, and hypoallergenic. Agatinia® uses a heavier gram of bamboo for the weighted kimonos, to give you that blanket feel of comfort around your body.

Tencel (Lyocell)

Tencel is a light and versatile cellulose fiber produced by dissolving wood pulp. It’s 50% more absorbent than cotton. Tencel’s wicking and antibacterial properties make it ideal for activewear. Production requires less energy and water than cotton. The wood pulp is sourced from sustainably managed eucalyptus plantations. Most importantly tencel is biodegradable. Though it requires petrochemicals in the production process, they are applied in a closed-loop system—the same solvent is recycled time and time again minimizing harmful waste.
