Circling back to the thing that started it all: Handwoven Cotton! While most of us are no strangers to the benefits of cotton clothing in the summer, nevertheless, here are a few reminders.
Cotton is a natural fibre and a hypoallergenic with high moisture absorption quality. And handwoven cotton has a fairly loose weave, permitting more air circulation and keeping the wearer odour and sweat free for longer.
Cotton outfits are durable, easy to style, skin-friendly, soft, comfortable and come in any shade imaginable, making them a very functional yet stylish fabric during the summer.
In conclusion, machine-spun textiles cannot replace the feel of handwoven fabrics. The latter have proven and continue to be valuable assets during the unrelenting summer heat. Whatever your style, elegant, chic or quirky, invest in these fabrics and you will definitely not be let down.
