Bemberg was established in the late 1890s in Germany by J.P. Bemberg. In 1931 a plant was opened in Japan and it is now the only manufacturer of Bemberg in the world.
Bemberg is created from the raw material of unused cottonseed linter, known as cupro. This is the regenerated cellulose fibre around the cottonseed that is usually discarded.
Bemberg can absorb and release moisture quickly, as it allows your body to breathe through the fabric. It keeps the wearer feeling fresh and comfortable, instead of feeling hot and sticky, which is caused by most synthetic fibres. Bemberg regulates your temperature to create the ultimate comfort for any season. In cooler weather, the absorbed moisture can generate heat when paired with another fabric and it won’t allow it to escape.
Because of the moisture retained in winter, Bemberg releases static electricity and causes friction on the skin. Bemberg is biodegradable in soil and the factory where it is produced generates 40% of their own power from sources such as hydropower generation and biomass power generation. They also aim to have 100% zero-emissions – something that is close to being achieved by reducing, recycling and eliminating waste.
