Cotton seeds are sown, irrigated and grown for the fluffy balls they produce. This is mainly found in USA, China or India.
They are harvested by self-driving machines, carefully removing the puffs they produce. A machine seperates the cotton from the seeds.
Trucks transport the cotton bales to spinning facilities usually in China or India.
The cotton is then taken to high-tech places where machines blend, card, comb, pull, stretch and finally twist the cotton. Yarns are then sent to the mill.
Huge cirular knitting machines weave them into sheets of rough greyish fabric. They are treated with heat and chemicals to make it soft and white.
The cotton is then dipped into different colour dyes and bleaches. the chemicals in these dyes and bleaches have cancerous acids and can give you cancer.
