What is cotton?

Cotton is a natural material and comes from the cotton plant. This plant needs a lot of light and that is why it is often grown in warm countries. SUITE702 only works with producers who are also GOTS certified . This is the strictest quality mark in the field of sustainability and social conditions.

Cotton has been used for thousands of years because it is a very fine product. It is strong, durable but also soft and breathable.

The plant grows a kind of woolly fluff, these are removed and the fibers are then spun into a yarn . The yarn is then woven to give us the cotton fabric.

With weaving you always have two directions, the warp thread and the weft thread. With a percale woven cotton duvet cover, the weaving technique consists of 1 thread across and 1 thread underneath . With a satin weave, 4 threads go over the SUITE702 and 1 thread goes under. This allows the yarns to be woven even closer together, resulting in the fabric becoming even more flexible.
