What you don’t know about Egyptian cotton
The history of Egyptian cotton is no less important than the history of Egypt itself. Cotton seeds have been grown and harvested by hand since the times of ancient Egypt. This makes the cotton cleaner and the fibers are fully preserved this way. Hand made cotton is of a higher quality than any other type of cotton. It is characterized by its delicacy, special strength and high absorbency.
In the 18th century, the demand for Egyptian cotton increased so much that the agricultural areas of cotton were spread all over the country and Egypt can now be considered as the world’s leading exporter of the finest cotton.
