Almost every part of the plant including the lint, cotton seed, stalks and seed hulls are useful in some way or the other. Aside from the appealing lack of wastage of cotton harvesting, we also know that it is comfortable in all weathers.

This is because the unique structure of cotton makes it a breathable fabric which is more comfortable than artificial fibres. This natural fibre is hypoallergenic and can be worn close to the skin. It absorbs water well and becomes stronger when wet.

Not only is it easy to clean, it can also withstand high temperatures and can be sterilized by boiling. 100% cotton fabric is soft, easy to dye and has good colour retention. It resists piling and is easy to dryclean.
