Organic Cotton: A History of Growth
Cotton is an ancient crop. The origin of cotton farming dates back to the earliest of times. Therefore, production of this crop has transformed as technology and new agricultural advancements shaped the speed and processing of cotton growth.
As with most interesting societal advancements, it’s found that the Egyptians first spun and weaved cotton. From clothing to burial coverings, cotton fibers and fabric had a use for just about everything. All over the world, cotton was a staple fabric for many.
Indian, African, and South American countries were all using cotton for different things. As organic cotton growth does best in warmer climates that maintain soil fertility, cotton was abundant across these countries. After the colonization of the United States, cotton production boomed across the southern states and allowed for the development of cotton mills in the 1900’s.
With the invention of cotton mills came automated processes for cotton’s overall processing. Slowly but surely, technological advancements meant that cotton fibers could become processed at faster rates, making cotton more accessible to all. Products could hit the markets faster, which meant cotton would hold its status as a staple fabric.
Organic Cotton Production
The production of organic cotton like with organic foods goes beyond not including toxic chemicals and pesticides while processing the crop. Farms that decide to go organic must go through a two year conversion process in order to swap out conventional processing with organic processing. From there, they must carefully monitor everything from the climate to the soil in order for their cotton to become classified as organic.
Cotton that’s organic will go through a similar process to become thread or yarn once picked. From that point, it’s turned into many different products and used for a variety of applications.
Organic Cotton Processing vs. Conventional Cotton Processing
As mentioned, cotton fields look different when growing organically versus conventionally. Conventional cotton processing leans towards the use of certain chemicals to eradicate pests and vermin that attack cotton, while organic fields don’t. Cotton that’s farmed organically has to uphold many standards of process so that it’s considered organic, while conventional growing doesn’t.
This doesn’t mean that one is necessarily worse for you than the other. Conventional cotton growth keeps up with the supply chain demand since it’s grown and processed rapidly than it’s organic counterpart. Either way, this natural crop produces many advantages of use over its synthetic equivalents.
