Cotton is the most preferred material for towels. This is because, cotton towels are very absorbent. They are not made from any petro-chemicals, so they are good on skin and also as cotton is a natural source, these towels are made from a natural source and do not harm the environment. The best thing about cotton towels is that they are very soft, and thus loved by most of the people.
Cotton towels start by huge machines that grab the flowering part of a cotton plant. These plants are grown on huge plantations in the Southwest USA, Uzbekistan, the People’s Republic of China and India. Other leading cotton-growing countries are Brazil, Pakistan and Turkey.
The cotton is separated from the stems of the plant and bundled into huge 400lb bales. Then the seeds are separated by machines inside a building. Afterwards the cotton is fed into huge spinneret machines that make threads of different textures and quality. Once the cotton is made into thread it can be sewn to make any number of different items from clothes to towels to back packs, bed sheets, denim, etc.
