Bemberg Chiffon

History of Bemberg Chiffon

The Bemberg story begins with its original conception and creation during the mid to late 19th century, and its first commercial production in Germany by the J. P. Bemberg Company in 1897.

Bemberg (Cupro Fibre) is the gentle fiber - a pure cellulosic fiber, reborn from the linter of the cotton plant - the short, downy fiber that enfolds and protects the cotton seed. It is reborn as 100% pure regenerated cellulose fibers which, unlike natural fibers, are almost perfectly round and free from surface and structural irregularity. With a multiporous surface that is inherently free from the skin layer found in cotton, viscose, and many other fibers, the Bemberg fiber is naturally silken in smoothness, luster, and color development, and in its moisture absorption and release. The result is smooth, fresh, free comfort, creativity, and elegance in a fiber that, like the cotton linter from which it originates, is biodegradable, and gentle on the environment.


Continuous filaments of Bemberg are spunbond to produce binder free, low particle, absorbent nonwoven cloths for home and industry. Bemberg hollow fibers form the membranes of hemodialyzers and other high performance filters. In filament, staple, and yarn configurations, it is the fiber of choice for quality linings and lingerie, fashion and casual apparel, and interior furnishings for home and office. Bemberg provides the gentleness of a natural fiber and the functionality of a man-made fiber, in a mutually enhancing interactive circle of intrinsic functions. The result is quality that is functional, comfortable, and elegant.
