Cotton is the most popular type of fabric that is currently being used in the fashion industry. This soft and fluffy fabric comes from the seeds of the cotton plant that belong to the Malvaceae family. It has a unique morphological trait as compared to all the other fibers and that is why even though it was a latecomer to the textile industry, it was able to gain a superior position over all the others.
One of the traits that differentiated cotton from the other fabric is its unparalleled durability. This is because cotton is a stable material and can withstand harsh weather and temperature conditions. In addition to that, it also has a superior water absorbency allowing it to absorb up to 27% of water without getting damp. But more than these, it is loved by many designers for its breathability, softness and hypoallergenic. Because of these properties, it is the fabric of choice for the creation of different types of summer and winter clothes. On the other hand, cotton is the fabric of choice for wearers and consumers because of it is easy to wash and care for.
