Cotton grows in a boll (protective capsule) around the seeds of the genus Gossypium. Cotton has been cultivated since antiquity and is the world’s largest agricultural crop. Using organic cotton not only insures your health but also the health of the planet since cotton growers rely so heavily on herbicides, fertilizers and insecticides.
Cotton can absorb up to 15% of its weight in water before feeling damp.
Pure cotton rarely causes allergies and is often recommended by health professionals to those with skin allergies. Due to the low reaction rate, cotton is also widely used in medical dressings and baby clothing.
Cotton is a soft, comfortable fabric that easily stretches. A variety of production methods and thread densities are used to provide a wide range of luxurious feels.
Pure cotton is a breathable fibre, making it the perfect partner for wool.
Cotton has high tensile strength, which allows it to stand up to the years of frequent use associated with mattresses.
