Comparison to other materials

Bemberg is Asahi Kasei's brand of regenerated cellulose fiber, cupro.

Regenerated fiber

Bemberg™ (Cupro)

A lining material that is highly absorbent and anti-static. Each fiber in the yarn is fine with a round cross section for outstanding smoothness and a silky touch which makes it an excellent material for linings.

Viscose rayon

The features of viscose rayon are similar to Bemberg. The fibers in the yarn are thicker than Bemberg and shaped like a chrysanthemum in cross section, which gives it a different feel than Bemberg in terms of smoothness and duzzleness.

Semi-synthetic fiber

Acetate

The material has about half the absorbency of Bemberg and viscose rayon and static builds easily. Shaped like plum blossoms in cross section. Smoothness, drapability and frictional strength are inferior.

Synthetic fiber

Polyester

Excellent in terms of frictional strength, wrinkle resistance and laundry in water, but compared to Bemberg, the absorbency is poor and the material often feels stuffy. Since the polyester fibers have a hard texture, some polyesters have been softened by alkali weight-reduction treatment. Since the material tends to build static, there are also anti-static linings that have been improved by anti-static treatment.

Natural fiber

Silk

Before there was regenerated fiber like Bemberg and viscose rayon or synthetic polyester fiber, silk was frequently used for linings, but today its use is limited to traditional clothing and luxury merchandise. The elegance and touch of silk is special, but daily use is difficult due to inferior frictional strength, smoothness and anti-static.
