Understanding Viscose and Its Properties
Natural. Comfortable. Biodegradable. Renewable. Sustainable.
Viscose delivers these benefits and more in clothing, home fabrics and hygiene products that people use every day. Made from wood cellulose, viscose fibre has a silky look and the feel of cotton with the same properties of comfort, breathability and absorbency.
Easy to dye, viscose is woven or knitted to make underwear, baby clothing, skirts, shirts and dresses that are soft on the skin.
At home, it’s the ideal fabric for high-end bed sheets, towels, tablecloths, napkins, furniture covers, curtains and drapes.
Pure and gentle on the skin, viscose is the trusted foundation of baby wipes, beauty masks, medical dressings and other disposable hygiene products.
Cellulose pulp from sustainably-managed plantations of fast-growing eucalyptus and acacia trees also makes viscose a natural, sustainable and fully biodegradable alternative to acrylic, nylon, polyester and other petroleum-based synthetic fabrics.
Demand for viscose is growing as people want only the best touching their skin.
