Hi Rossana. Can you help me with this question - the journey of your shirt from a cotton field to your wardrobe
Hi Joey. Yes i can can explain. Cotton is harvested when the pods mature. Then, the cotton fibre is taken out, pods and seeds separated from it. The cotton thus obtained is shipped to spinning mills, where yarn is made.
How does the yarn get different colours ?
The yarns are bleached with chemicals and dyed with dyes or pigments. Thereafter, the yarn is sent to textile mills for being woven into fabric. If the yarn had not been bleached and dyed at the spinning mill, an off-white fabric is obtained; this is called grey fabric and it is now bleached and dyed.
Ok so that happen affter the cloth is stitched.
Once the fabric is woven, it is shipped to distributors or wholesalers, who in turn sell it to retailers. The retailers then sell it to customers like us. We buy cloth as per our requirement and get it stitched by a tailor. Eventually, the shirt is collected from the tailor and finds its way into our wardrobe.
