Shirt blouses deserve a permanent place in your wardrobe. If you could only pick one this season - don't panic, it's just a hypothesis - the Kati blouse is a smart choice. Why? Because the luxurious fabric, a mix of cupro and lyocell, is not only durable, but also because the supple drape and beautiful peach sheen make the loose-fit blouse as laidback as it is chic. Taste for more? Our Karo pant is made from the same fabric. Both items are available in the timeless colors navy and forest green. Give these future classics a well-deserved place in your basic wardrobe.
*Curious about Tencel/lyocell clothing? Tencel is a brand name for a fabric made from lyocell, a natural raw material based on wood pulp that is used to make fibers that are then spun into yarns. Indeed, just like viscose. The big advantage of lyocell is the relatively short process from pulp to fiber, which uses less water and less energy. Lyocell also consists mainly of wood pulp from the eucalyptus tree, a tree that grows very quickly without extra irrigation and pesticides. If you value sustainability, lyocell clothing is a logical choice.
**Cupro, like viscose/lyocell and Tencel, is a natural raw material that is transformed into textile fibers using technology. The difference with viscose/lyocell/Tencel: cupro is made from the gossamer-fine fibers that grow around cottonseed. Clothing made of cupro generally has more shine.
