Cotton like all naturally found elements has a defined shelf life. Why do we continue to stick with pure cotton for most products and not introduce a blend? I would like to briefly explain this, so sit tight. For all the fans who are on the poly cotton bandwagon *trigger alert*.
Cotton has been growing in our hot tropical country for a long time, some estimates put it as far as back as 6000 BC. Cotton generally is better at soaking up moisture from the skin and allowing it to evaporate from the outer surface. This results in keeping you cool even when the temperature is touching 40 degrees Celsius.
India is the largest producer of cotton, this enables us access to a large pool of fabric which is pocket friendly and the same benefit is passed on to you the consumer.
The smooth exterior combined with a permeable construction makes for a great surface to print on. All types of inks used for printing works well thus eliminating the situation where the inks react with chemicals (found in man made fabrics) causing improper setting or worse, discoloration
Safe for the environment
As a natural product it does not require an intensive chemical process to be transformed into fabric. Within one to 5 months cotton will biodegrade in a compost pit, it’s man made rivals take 20 to 200 years.
We all hate it when your favorite tee is filled with small ugly bobbles (pills). These are formed when short or broken threads get entangled to form a small ball. It can happen on any fabric but more so on fabrics which are a combination of two types, i.e polyester and cotton or other combinations in the same line. You are unlikely to face this issue as products made by yourdesignstore.in are 100% cotton. There is slim possibility even the best fabrics are susceptible to pilling
From planting the seed to fabric stage it takes over 9 months, cotton is a time consuming product but in return we get a fabric which is light on the skin and safe for mother earth.
