Next up in our fabric series is a fabric made of coffee grounds. This so-called S.Café® fabric comes with some great functional qualities for clothing. L’Herbe Rouge designed a garment entirely based on coffee, from its yarn to the final wash. The collection was presented at Textifood Exposition Universelle Milan 2015. Sounds like a solution we can easily integrate into our continuously growing coffee drinking society, huh?
When most people talk about “bamboo textiles”, they are talking about bamboo viscose products. The viscose method for producing textile fibres is not environmentally friendly, as it is very chemical intensive. Also, the resulting fibres are short and, therefore, weak. Lyocell fibres, however, are long and strong. The fibre is stronger than cotton in both wet and dry condition. It is also very soft and smooth. This makes the Monocel fabrics suitable for a large number of applications.
