Cotton is good.
Cotton is the fuzz that surrounds the seed of the cotton plant, a plant that grows in tropical and subtropical climates and requires a lot of water to cultivate. When the seed is ripe, it bursts and releases an abundance of fluff. The length of cotton fibres varies according to the species and the degree of maturity. The longer and finer the fibre, the better the quality and strength of the cotton. The quality of cotton also depends on its colour, which varies from creamy white to yellowish. The closer the cotton is to white, the more it is appreciated because it is easier to bleach it completely and then dye it. Cotton is a natural material of vegetable origin, such as linen and hemp. There are also natural materials of animal origin, such as wool or silk.
Organic cotton is even better.
What distinguishes organic cotton from traditional cotton is the way it is grown. To be able to claim the organic label, cotton must be grown without pesticides or fertilisers, and without being grown in monocultures. Crop rotation avoids the need for pesticides. Because the soil is not attacked, it can store water better and the plants are more resistant to insects. This creates a natural virtuous circle in the long term. In addition, organic cotton cultivation requires less energy and water. This results in a garment that is less polluting and therefore healthier for the planet in the long term. The strengths of cotton, whether organic or conventional, are numerous. It has the essential qualities of natural materials. Cotton is absorbent, insulating, breathable and very low in allergies.
