One of the most frequently asked questions we get is what is the difference between Organic Cotton and Regular Cotton? Why should I care, and why does it matter? Well, you have come to the right place. Continue reading to find out why Organic Cotton is a heck of a lot better than Regular Cotton!
The purity of cotton fibers comes from the way the cotton is picked after it is grown. Cotton can be either handpicked or machine picked. Organic cotton is always handpicked, which helps in preserving the purity of every fiber and ensuring that no fiber is damaged in the process. Regular cotton is more in demand and therefore the crops have to be harvested faster. Regular cotton is typically machine-picked to cope with the rush. The growing process also involves more chemicals and genetically modified methods to ensure that the crops grow in a timely fashion. This doesn’t maintain the purity of the fibers, and also damages cotton fibers in the picking process, leading to loss and waste. Organic cotton products are softer than regular cotton because of the longer fibers. Being handpicked ensures these fibers don’t get weakened or broken, resulting in softer and more durable products. After many washes, the integrity of an Organic Cotton textile product will far outlast regular cotton blends. Organic cotton gets softer after every wash, due to the longer strands and durability of the fibers in comparison to regular cotton.
