What are triacetate filaments?

Triacetate filaments are characterized by a luster and touch that resemble silk. Generally, they are combined with other fibers such as rayon or polyester to create fabric for women’s wear. Triacetate is particularly suitable for high class women’s wear due to its soft texture and rich draping properties.
