Basic information about cotton

In the middle ages people believed that cotton grows on trees. Pictures exist showing sheep hanging on ramifyed trees! The cotton fibre was unknown
for quite a long time in Europe. Cotton grows on a low mallow bush. When the ripened capsule bursts open thousands of hairfibre seeds emerge. the seeds are seperated and the fibres are spun and processed.

A cotton fabric was considered a worthy present for Charles The Great. That was over a thousand years ago and cotton was unknown in Europe at that time.
The Western world had to wait for the Arabs to introduce the cultivation and processing of cotton in Spain and Sicily. It was a very costly material for a long time and Europe imported it from Asia, Africa and later from America.

Around the turn of the century inventions which rationalized the harvesting, spinning and weaving led to a dominant position on the world market.
Cotton is easy to take care of, multi-purpose and good value for money.

Untreated cotton does not cause allergies, has no electrostatic charge, is highly absorbent and comfortable to wear.
