Cotton simply put is a fluffy staple fiber. It may sound simple, but it is indeed an enormously huge topic. Its history dates back to pre-historic times. It is often claimed that fragments of cotton fabric dated 5000 B.C. have been excavated from Mexico and Ancient India or Indus Valley Civilization. It has many feathers in its cap – Natural Fibre, Breathable Textile, Recyclable etc
