Lining - the Silent Partner
Key effects and functions of a well-designed lining
Smooth, gentle dressing and removal
Facilitating comfortable, gentle garment donning and doffing, less binding and clinging.
Smooth, graceful silhouette
Maintaining and enhancing the drape, form, and flow of the outer fabric.
Clean, damage-less to the outer fabric
Shielding the outer fabric from yellowing, and other effects of soiling from interior fabrics, skin, or perspiration, and helping to support and maintain outer fabric configuration.
Cool, free summer comfort
Preventing hot, moist interior discomfort and damp-fabric adhesion to the skin.
A lining with good moisture absorption provides cooler, drier summer comfort than unlined garments.
Less from static charge
Preventing the generation and sudden discharge of static electricity - particularly important in dry seasons, and one of the most important characteristics of a good liner.
A liner with good moisture absorption generally provides cooler, drier summer comfort than unlined garments.

Liner Materiat - The Essential Difference
Cupro moisture absorption
Of the 900 cc of moisture per day released by the human body as water vapor, 70% is in perspiration via the skin.
Cupro is a fiber that "breathes", absorbing moisture from the warm, moist internal air and releasing it to the cooler, drier external air.
Cupro abrasion resistance, for linings of lasting form, function, and beauty
Cupro linings resist wear-as shown by these comparisons of liner weight loss and change in appearance under rubbing with worsted fabric, by the Martindale test.
