Cotton is a natural fiber used to make soft and breathable textiles. It can be recycled and recovered, however it is sensitive to light and heat.
Cotton needs to be washed in cold water and washed by hand; this helps to keep the color. You can use a washing machine but make sure the temperature isn’t above 30°C.
Using hot water can cause the cotton to shrink.
It is best to air dry, on a flat surface and out of the sun if possible.
