How is Fabric Made?
Ever wondered how a cotton plant becomes a bed sheet? Here’s a simplified step by step guide to make it easy for you!
Step 1: The cotton seed is planted
Step 2: Five to six months later the cotton fibres are ready to be harvested
Step 3: The fibres go through a process called ginning where the seeds, twigs etc. are removed
Step 4: The cleaned fibres go through a process called spinning where the fibres are twisted together to form yarn
Step 5: The yarn is then woven (interlaced) into fabric
Step 6: The woven fabric then goes through a process called finishing where various techniques are used to allow the fabric to take dye better, control shrinkage, improve sheen and more
Step 7: The final fabric is then stitched into bedding, clothes and more!
