The processing of cotton has an ancient past, it was obtained by wooden or hand tools. After taking the cotton capsule, a ball of filament was obtained which was treated and then sent to the textile industries. Only after the invention of the mechanical loom did the processing of cotton really speed up to reach today’s production size.
Currently, cotton is mainly used in the textile sector, where semi-finished products can be found, such as raw or colored fabric packaging, and a large variety of processed products such as clothing, sheets, towels, etc.
Cotton fabrics can be 100% pure, but very often they are mixed fabrics.
