Why we love wearing cotton natural clothing.
You walk into a store to peruse the latest tops and dresses on the racks.
But as you're looking through, what makes you decide whether you want something? For most of us -- besides the obvious factors of price and design -- it's simply how the fabric feels and looks. So how much do you really know about the most popular fabrics being used today?
Cotton is the best-selling fabric in the United States, and one of the best-selling in the world. It's naturally derived from the cotton plant, which is exceptionally durable. It can travel thousands -- yes, thousands -- of miles by wind, even across the ocean. As a result, it is a common fabric all across the globe.
Fun fact: did you know that cotton is used in the production of U.S. money (75% of the bill!), and also gunpowder?
Why we love it: Cotton is literally the "fabric of our lives." It's durable, soft and comfortable. It breathes well and is a part of our daily lives. It's extremely easy to take care of and good for the environment.
What we're not crazy about: Cotton will wear down over time, losing shape and color after a certain number of washes.
