Yvonne's Opinion : This fabric is a wonder of look, softness and illustrates the progress of the textile industry towards more sustainable fabrics !
This heavy structured Viscose has the perfect drape and weight to sew Dresses and Skirts, Trousers and Shorts without lining and turned into a Light Jacket like a Blazer or a Teddy it will be just as Stunning !
How is this fabric more sustainable ? Fabrics as you know are usually dyed with water (basically it's the same principle, as when you try to regain a black Jean rubbed off in your washing machine, except that the drum from the industrial machines is 40 times bigger - average 6 kg against average 250 kg ;-)) while this fabric is AIR dyed ! What are the advantages :
- the air dye reduces the water consumption for this operation by 95% !!
- energy consumption of 85%, (because the dyeing operation is faster than for a conventional dye!)
- As a bonus, this method of dyeing reduces fabric loss by 9% during this process operation. During a conventional dyeing, on average there is a loss of 10% in fabric for quality reasons (the first baths are not always in conformity with the desired color, etc.) whereas for this method the loss is reduced to 1% of the production !
- this dye gives a luxurious finishing and a super soft handfeel to the fabric!
Shortly said, you'll understand this fabric is a stunner, which I hope will become a basic in the coming seasons! I want pants, shorts, a dress now the complecate part what colors and witch pattern ;-)).
