It’s a battle for the best: Cotton vs. Polyester!

Let’s talk fabrics:

Cotton and Polyester are the two most dominant fibers in the apparel industry. Cotton fibers are made up entirely of cellulose and are harvested from plants that are cultivated every year. Cotton is well-known for its softness and breathability.

Whereas, Polyester is a synthetic fabric made primarily from petroleum. This fabric is the most widely used synthetic textile in the world, with thousands of consumer and industrial applications.

Go natural with Cotton:

Cotton is the type of fabric that will never lose its popularity and it is never going away. It is always the first pick in the list of clothing, especially in summers, to keep you cool.

Before the synthetic fabrics were developed cotton was the only material that was used for sports apparel and even today some people choose cotton over other fabrics for comfort and breathability.

Where and Why to wear cotton?

Your wardrobe is an investment. Filling it with fabrics that can be worn year round is a smart practice and cotton definitely fits that criteria but, at the same time, it is very important to know what type of fabric is most suitable.

In summers, people, more often tend to buy soft and breathable clothes for free experience.

Cotton is suitable when it comes to low-intensity workouts like Yoga, because it allows you to absorb the wetness from the body and gives maximum air circulation.
