Vijaeswari Textiles introduces Gossamer Cotton
March 16, 2006,
Coimbatore, India – Vijaeswari Textiles Limited (VTX) has created a new label, Gossamer Cotton, for a line of bedding products made from hand-picked and selected cotton buds.
Buds used in the technique have been allowed an extended growing period and are processed at a slow speed to yield fibers that are 25% longer than standard extra long staple cotton and 30% finer than the best Egyptian cotton. The density of the fibers lends the resulting woven fabric the luster of silk. “It can hold up to any embroidery,” Ramachandra said.
