Fiber etching is the process of removing cellulose fibers with a chemical medium to create a design on fabric. The process generally is used on composite fabric having cellulose and non-cellulose fibers, i.e. silk/rayon, poly/cotton. A variety of implements may be used to create the designs; foam or bristle brushes, stencils, silk screens, fine-tipped squeeze bottles, etc. This process also is known as devoré or burn-out.
