Poly Viscose Tartan

Poly Viscose Tartan fabrics are light in weight and absorb perspiration very quickly.  It’s silky to matte gloss and colors, gives them a beautiful look and not to mention easy to take care.  Polyester viscose is a blend of viscose, and polyester, which increases the viscose wet strength.  The blend gives it the durability to handle washing and drying by machine.  It makes the fabric stronger, but it retains the same drape and feel of standard viscose rayon.  Viscose rayon is similar to other natural fibers, such as linen or cotton.  Poly Viscose Tartan is made from a cellulose xanthate solution made from wood pulp.  The process for creating it was discovered in the early 1890s and was first manufactured in the United States for commercial use in 1910.
