Cotton offers a unique mix of characteristics. It’s ideal for creating many products including cotton packaging bags for storing and presenting everything from wedding favors to baked goods.
Opting for eco-friendly cotton products over products made with other materials is an excellent solution if you’re looking for an affordable, versatile and environmentally friendly material.
Top 10 benefits of using cotton instead of other materials:
Natural cotton, free of toxic chemicals and dyes, doesn’t irritate the skin like synthetic fibres and treated cotton can. Natural cotton also won’t trigger allergic reactions.
Cotton is a moderately strong fibre that does not stress easily.
Cotton can absorb up to 27 times its own weight in water.
4. Variety of weights
Cotton comes in many different weights that are appropriate for different uses making it one of the most useful fabrics available.
5. Easy to sew
Cotton isn’t as slippery or stretchy as many other fabrics making it easy to sew.
6. Simple to dye
Cotton can be coloured in numerous ways because it takes and retains dye so easily. Natural non-toxic dyes are an excellent eco-friendly option.
Cotton allows for air circulation and evaporation of moisture. In hot weather, cotton absorbs moisture and releases it on its surface so it can evaporate.
Cotton’s breath-ability makes it particularly ideal for storing fruits and vegetables. Bread storage cotton bags are excellent for wrapping baked goods.
8. Low piling
Pills are balls of tangled fibres that form when a fabric rubs against itself or another material. Cotton is low piling, and it sheds pills in the wash, unlike many other fabrics.
Cotton’s durability, versatility and ease of care is optimal for creating long lasting cotton products like canvas reusable grocery bags.
10. Eco Friendly
If you opt for natural cotton that isn’t manufactured with toxic chemicals and dyes, cotton is an environmentally friendly fabric. Unlike synthetic fibres, cotton biodegrades.
