Viscose was first procured in the late 1800s as a substitute to silk. With silk directed at the affluent part of society, viscose was a cheaper alternative made available for the masses. Similar to Tencel/Lyocell, Viscose is a semi-synthetic fabric that comes from the wood pulp of eucalyptus trees.
It has become a popular fabric for fashion brands in recent years as it is cheaper and more socially approachable to produce than silk. You will often find viscose in summer shirting and dresses due to its lightweight, breathability and soft skin feel.
We have many viscose blends this season, check them out here.
