The raw material of Bemberg™ Cupro is cotton linter, a by product of cotton seed oil. Asahi Kasei uses its proprietary technologies to refine and dissolve the linter that is not normally used as fiber, transforming it into pure regenerated fiber.
Made of fibers with an almost perfectly round cross-section, Bemberg yarn has a smooth surface. This means that it irritates the skin less than other materials and is unlikely to harm delicate skin.
Bemberg rapidly absorbs and releases moisture through very small waterways that are invisible to the naked eye. It keeps the wearer cool, fresh and comfortable.
Bemberg is biodegradable when buried. For example, in summer conditions (temperature 35°C, humidity 80%), the weight of the material decreases by one half in nearly two months. The fiber is decomposed by living organisms and returns to the soil.
