The word cotton comes from the Arabic word ‘quton’, but earliest production was in India, which is still the number one producer in the world.
Cotton is a completely natural fabric, and did you know that cotton plants need to grow for over 200 days?
Cotton has many amazing qualities and is particularly known for it's softness, durability, absorbency and breathability.
Softness: The cotton plant is soft and fluffy and results in a fabric that often retains that soft feel.
Durability: The cotton plant’s cellular structure is strong, creating a tough and wear-and-tear resistant fabric.
Absorbency: Cotton fabric is very absorbent because there is a lot of space between the cotton fibres.
Breathability: The fibre structure of cotton makes it more breathable than synthetic fibres, meaning it is very comfortable to wear.
Cotton is famous for its softness and durability. This combination of unique properties make cotton one of the most widely used fabrics in the world.
One of the more amazing qualities of cotton is that’s it is a hypoallergenic natural fabric. That means it does not trigger or cause any allergies and is therefore suitable for newborns, babies and children, as well as those with sensitive skin.
