About Cotton

3000 B.C. to Today

Evidence of the growing of cotton has been found at sites that are thousands of years old. No one knows for sure where cotton was first made into fabric. Pakistan has a history of using cotton as far back as 3,000 B.C.

Warm climates as found in India and Uzbekistan are ideal for growing cotton. Cotton is usually planted around October and harvested around April. The cotton balls found in clusters on the plant are actually called “Bolls.” These bolls are removed from the plant and cleaned using a cotton “gin.” After the ginning process the cotton is formed into bales.

The bales of cotton are then prepared for the transformation to yarn. A cotton mill will take the cotton and make fibers by spinning the cotton tightly to form yarn. Yarn is then woven on a loom to form a fabric.

This fabric is then cut, and hand sewn by our artisans in the United States. Our towel fabric has a hand sewn edge binding. A unique hand stitching is then added over the binding. Finally, embroidery and finishing is carefully adorned to each and every towel so that you receive an exceptional towel made with pride, and care.
