Luvisca was a type of rayon cotton fabric made by Courtaulds (British manufacturer of textiles, clothing, artificial fibres and chemicals). The Luvisca label was used by Courtaulds from 1914 as part of their developments in making cellulose viscose fabrics. Initially it was used to describe fabrics with mixtures of cotton and rayon, and cotton and silk. Luvisca Limited was a wholly owned subsidiary of Courtaulds and dissolved in 1970.
