Cotton is the newest addition to our inventory. We know you can get cotton anywhere, but as you might expect, at Sartor we take a different approach.

It turns out that, much as with silk and wool, cotton is kind of an art unto itself. Not all cotton plants are created equal; much depends on the climate and the care taken in cultivation. And when it comes to the finished cotton fabrics, there is a dizzying amount of expert terminology and lingo, both modern and historical. Then there’s the ecological side of things, which is an increasingly relevant topic. If you yearn to know more about this humble, ever-present material, you’re in the right place!
