100% Mercerized Cotton
Mercerization is a process applied to cellulosic fibers – typically cotton, hemp and linen can be mercerized also – to increase luster, able to absorb more water, and therefore absorb more dye, making the color of the dyed cloth brighter and deeper. Not only is the color brighter, it also gives the cloth a better resistance to multiple washings, keeping the colors bright and unchanged over time.
