Cotton, one of the most widely used fabrics in the world for millennia, was discovered in Asia, then in the 1700s it appeared in Europe. Cotton is a plant fiber that surrounds a shrub, the cotton plant. When it blooms from its beautiful white or yellow five-petalled flowers, the cotton finally appears as little balls and is ready to be harvested for your viewing pleasure in future stitching. Mainly used for making T-shirts, washcloths, towels, you can treat it pretty well cotton is a very flexible and robust fabric, it has several very beneficial peculiarities, absorbency and therefore is extremely water resistant, the cotton also has other advantages, it has an insulating power and withstands heat very well, it is a natural material.

Linen is mainly made in Europe by our French neighbors in the region of Normandy and Picardy, we find this light blue flowering plant cultivated for centuries. During the harvest there are different stages before the flax is used as fabrics, we must first extract the flax plant from the ground, then dry it for a few days, once dry we grind it to extract the precious material, the fiber of linen, which we will then weave to obtain our coveted fabric. A real thermal regulator, insulating in winter and breathable in summer, linen absorbs moisture, is antibacterial and hypoallergenic in nature. Linen is generally suitable for all uses.
Wool is a material of animal origin, the shearing of the animal takes place in the spring and usually only happens once a year. Once the shearing is finished we will sort and classify the different parts according to the quality of the wool, to then sort and carefully select the best parts of the wool which will be cleaned and dried, unfortunately it is not finished it will then be unraveled and this process is called carding. When this is finished it can be dyed or left in its natural color. The last step is the weaving to get your coveted and soft fabric. True thermal insulation, wool has enough to keep you warm during long cold periods in winter.
Viscose or artificial silk is a vegetable textile, which was created by two French people in the years 1884, to meet the demand for a fabric similar to silk, but which is more economical to produce, viscose is a mixture of carbohydrate cellulose which mainly constitutes wood or other plant and collodion which allows to replace the use of silkworms, insect used in the silk manufacture. The properties of viscose are similar to those of cotton, resistant and absorbent. However, the process gives it a more silky and fluid appearance than cotton.
