The word cotton comes from the Arabic word “quton”. Cotton is a staple textile of the fashion industry. Every closet probably has a large percentage of cotton items, plain cotton, dyed cotton, or cotton mix.

Why Turkish Cotton?
Turkish cotton is a premium long-fiber cotton grown exclusively in the Aegean Region. Much like Egyptian cotton, the long fibers yield stronger and smoother threads than regular cotton. And also like Egyptian cotton, Turkish cotton becomes even softer and more comfortable over time.
