About the material:
Triacetate fiber is made mainly of the natural wood pulp from forest-thinning materials. As it is called “half-synthetic fiber”, it has features of both natural material textures and synthetic fiber functions. It is a graceful, functional and “eco-conscious fiber”.
Characteristics of Triacetate
Because Triacetate fiber has a good coloring function, a silk-like glossy surface, a smooth texture and a beauty in drapes and other functional advantages, it is widely used in everyday clothes and fashionable dress materials. Moreover, its excellent performance in heat resistance, alkali resistance and heat set adaptability contribute to an affinity with other natural fibers such as raw silk, cotton, and hemp, and also with synthetic fibers like polyester, nylon, and acryl.
