Natural fiber among the most used by man since ancient times, it is obtained, for textile production, from the dense down (the so-called cotton wool) that wraps the seeds of a plant of the Gossypium species.
Cotton is a material that does not need special care and, unlike other fibers, such as wool and silk, it is not attacked by moths.
Its color changes according to its origin: when it comes from Asian regions it has a reddish-brown color; it is white if it comes from the Americas; it tends to yellowish if it comes from the Egyptian areas.
Its main eco-friendly characteristics, determined by the 100% natural composition (about 95% of the total is, in fact, cellulose), consist of biodegradability and recyclability.
Cotton is a light, soft but also resistant fabric with high absorbency.
In addition, it is hypoallergenic and breathable. The fabrics made using this natural fiber, with multiple qualities, are distinguished by softness and pleasantness, absorbing and insulating power, breathability and hygiene.
