Eco fur with less shedding

Today eco fur is one of the critical elements of fashion used throughout the world. In the past, though, shedding has been a problem with many complaints of inner garments being covered with eco fur fibers. The lustrous process developed by Kaneka has solved this problem. Kaneka has successfully limited the level of shedding to about one tenth of that of conventional high pile fabrics. Lustrous is the product of this process, and is manufactured, processed and sold by high pile fabrics manufacturers under license from Kaneka. World famous brands are also adopting Lustrous to their fashion lineup.

Cleaner, and a growing range of applications

With the vivid coloring of Kanecaron and minimal shedding, Lustrous is the ideal pile material for those who demand the look and feel of real fur. The limited shedding effect of the lustrous process keeps dust and fluff generated by home textiles and soft toys to the minimum, so the home remains cleaner. From fashion to everyday household items, Lustrous has a vast range of applications that can function to enhance the cleanliness and comfort of our daily lives.

The lustrous process effectively prevents the underside surface of the pile from becoming fluffed, so shedding is kept to a minimum.
