Asahi Kasei will present Cupro and ROICA fabrics during Premiere Vision autumn salon in Paris
Come to booth in Hall 5R 91 and see, touch and feel newness in the Cupro and ROICA™ designed for The Modern Wardrobe where everything can now work perfectly, beautifully and smarter for you. From foundations to tailoring and jersey separates, or occasion wear, active sportswear and hosiery and accessories… today, all are crafted and designed exactly to suit the modern consumer. And here, more than ever, Cupro is pivotal in delivering these amazing fabrics.
Cupro … Feel Precious
Cupro is a refined, matchless material with an exquisite touch. Famous for high quality linings, the smart science and a naturalbased resource behind its invention now delivers its cool and sensual experience for all fashion items in The Modern Wardrobe To anticipate this, Asahi Kasei are launching 3 new, extra-refined qualities that emphasize Cupro’s unique and supple, skin connecting experience.
Cupro FF, a new Micro fine quality with extra softness, super-fineness and drape for new levels of weightless, silk-like luxury. Feel the cool luxe touch of new dress weight veils, ceremonial sari materials and deluxe nightwear. Enjoy a fluidity and lustrous optic that has a unique personality unequalled in the market.
Also new is the Matte filament thread, Cupro DF, which subtly seduces the fingertips with its petal soft, powdered touch. Practically it is completely opaque, protecting from UV, but its star quality emerges in its butter-soft, angel-skin finish, that’s completely unique and original to Cupro.
The final Cupro introduction is a new staple spun production that offers an everyday, luxury touch that is natural in feel with low pill luster. It is a practical response for modern underwear, essentials, sport and leisurewear that all benefit perfectly from Cupro’s natural antistatic and heat regulating properties.
Supporting this new development program, and the growing demand for Cupro, Asahi Kasei are pleased to announce investments in a 10% production ramp up from 15,000 to 16,500 tons per year, helping to ensure this one-of-a-kind exquisite product becomes an everyday part of The Modern Wardrobe for all.
