Viscose is a regenerated cellulose fibre, which is strong, durable and comfortable. This makes it a key fibre to use in producing corporate wear, as clothes may be worn on a regular basis for up to 2 years.

Beneficial properties:

Viscose is abrasion resistant, yet soft to handle and has good drape properties. It is breathable and absorbent, which adds to its comfort.

Care considerations:

Viscose tends to be weak when wet and is prone to shrinking. Like polyester, viscose can pill and snag more easily than other fibres and can have a shiny appearance.

End of life possibilities:

As it is 100% cellulose, viscose is biodegradable. It also has potential for reuse and remanufacture and should not be sent to landfill.
