How To Identify Pure Cotton Clothing

Update:07 Jan

  Cotton is a soft material that doesn't sting and has a long lifespan. So it's no surprise that many designers love to use this fabric.

  Most of us judge an item of clothing by first impressions. Only a few people take the time to scrutinize the quality. First, it's important to look at the garment as a whole: the best finishes won't help if the fabric is poor quality and vice versa.

  The quality of the cotton is evident at a glance: the 100% ELS (extra long staple) or combed cotton fabric has a smooth, almost silky feel. Cheaper varieties often lack this softness (unless they're made from an inferior polyester blend: so don't forget to check the care label to make sure you're buying a 100% cotton tee). Obviously, you can't touch the fabric when shopping online: but you can be sure that brands that use high-quality cotton varieties, such as ELS, will mention this on their websites and product descriptions.

  Another trick, if you can get your hands on the garment before buying it, is to hold it against the light. Even very thin fabrics should not appear completely transparent. If the fabric lets a lot of light through, it is either not knitted or very densely woven, and therefore deforms and frays easily.

  Since cotton is spun into yarn, it is easy to inspect individual threads. These should be even without any gaps. Look closely and what you should see is a smooth, regular pattern.

  When buying online, you rely on product descriptions. As a rule of thumb, it can be assumed that the more information you can find about the fabric, its composition, and properties, the higher the quality of the actual fabric and final garment. Therefore, if a brand does not detail the specifications of its material, one can infer from the lack of information that the cotton fabric is of poor quality.
