Additional information



Cotton is a vegetable fiber obtained from a plant, and used mainly as a raw material in the manufacture of fabrics, suits, garments and clothing.

Cotton is extracted from a plant in the Malvaceae family. The plant, as it grows, develops a cocoon where it creates a ball that, when it hatches, has black or brown seeds, surrounded by white fibers. through mechanical processes the cotton is shaped like a ball, becoming a soft and very absorbent (hydrophilic) product.
