But wait, what is Poly-viscose?

First, allow us to break it down into its constituents: Viscose, and Polyester.

Viscose

Viscose (also called rayon) is a natural fabric, made of wood pulp. It is machine-processed to create thread-like yarns, and is thus considered a ‘semi-synthetic’ fabric.

Due to its soft and smooth properties, is also known as ‘man-made silk’. Its natural fibres makes it comfortable, soft, and breathable.

The downside is that it is structurally weaker than other commonly worn fabrics, such as cotton and polyester.

Polyester

Polyester is a 100% synthetic fabric, and is one of the strongest, most versatile fabrics around. However, it is generally not as breathable as fabrics made of natural fibres.

Poly-viscose

When combined, Polyester strengthens viscose, and viscose softens polyester, like a match made in textile heaven.

The result – a smooth, silky, strong fabric with breathable properties. Bonus – it’s machine washable.

Once you go Poly-viscose, you might never go back.
