The History of British Cotton

Cotton has been around as long as some of humanity’s oldest civilizations, and today remains one of our most important raw materials for making textiles to use and wear. It is estimated that as far back as 4500 BC the ancient civilizations of Mexico  were cultivating cotton, as well as places over in the Indus Valley not long after that.

But it wasn’t until the European imperialists established thriving sea trade networks around the world that cotton really took off as a global commodity. The British East India Company introduced cotton to Britain, and thereafter demand began to grow.

Cotton – Why We Cherish It So Much

Cotton – the world’s most used material – is an amazing plant.
We learned to use all its parts, from the fibre for cloth making to the seeds which are the source of oil that is used in food industry. Its leftovers: meal and hull are used to feed farm animals.
Just look around – our t-shirts, underwear, bed linen, towels, and many other things are made from cotton.
This is because cotton fabric has so many qualities like being breathable, highly absorbent, durable and non-allergic.

It has also become popular for making bags as it is strong and very easy to sew and its absorbent qualities make it a great material for dyeing and printing.
We truly believe that a cotton bag is nature at its best – natural product that is fully recyclable and eco-friendly.

Why You Would Not Be Able to Find Prices on Our Website

We don’t provide quotes on the website simply because all our products are customized, and prices may change depending on the quantity, size of the product and your specific requirements.

Showing prices means there is a single product type – however we make our products to our customers specifications, and these requirements can mean a variation in the cost. A single product price would simply be inaccurate.

Feel free to email us directly with your request, and we will be more than pleased to work on your product and prices for you.

Have a beautiful day,

A Great Story Behind a Cotton Product

We are proud to be a part of the Drain Dollies bags and cushion covers project.

Charlotte Wood, the founder of Drain Dollies created the company which sells bags that hold surgical drains safely and securely. She has also created small gorgeous cushion covers with the design that conveys an important message – the pink part of the ribbon symbolizes breast cancer and the teal part is the symbol of ovarian cancer. 10% of all the sales goes to Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention charity.

It is such an enormous honour for us to have the opportunity to make cotton products which are used to help women affected by breast and ovarian cancer.

Cross vs. Non-Cross Stitched Handles

Most of the tote bags have CROSS STITCHED handles which is a traditional way of sewing the straps to the bags.
We have recently processed a few orders for the bags with NON-CROSS STITCHED handles and since it turned out to be such a success we are happy to present it to the world.
This elegant option is especially recommended in the designs with edge to edge printing.

Cotton Bag Challenge

I have to admit it took us a while to come to terms with 5p plastic bags tax. The media was full of stories about trolley thefts, increased production of shopping baskets or fierce arguments between shoppers and cashiers. If you still find this law difficult to digest why not set yourself up for a Cotton Bag Challenge. Very simple task indeed – get a reusable cotton shopping bag.

Here at Cotton Barons we have been using Cotton Bags since the late 90’s and we cannot imagine packing our goods in plastic carrier bags. Just think about the capacity and durability of the fabric. It also protects your purchased items from brakeage and it’s convenient to carry around. And for the fashionistas out there you can perfectly cooperate your cotton bags with your outfit.

Personally, I prefer folding my bags and storing them in my kitchen cupboard than binning another plastic bag.

Why not try it yourself.
