Today we can choose from a lot of textiles. A huge variety of fibers is used to make them: from natural wool, silk, linen, cotton, rayon to synthetic, produced from petroleum: polyamide, acrylic, polyester, nylon, acetate, melamine. Synthetic materials are cheap, they almost not crease, do not wear out for a long time and are easy to wash. But do we feel good wearing clothes made from synthetic materials, especially when it‘s hot? Fabrics made from petroleum  cause a discomfort.

They become itchy and red spots can become bigger. Frequent scratching can lead to blisters or pustules.
     
  • Synthetic fabrics provide good thermal conductivity. So if you wear nylon clothing you will sweat abundantly. As a result, it makes it easy to overheat and when you suddenly get into a building, you will get colds.
     
  • They pollute the environment. If you want to contribute to the preservation of the environment you will choose clothing made of natural materials. The production of synthetic fibers emissions hazardous chemicals that accelerates global warming. Synthetic clothing will only decompose within 30 – 40 years in a landfill.

  • It can cause an asthma attack. To prepare clothes for sale formaldehyde is often used. It helps the tissue to keep bright color. Because of it clothes do not crease and do not shrink. However, it is believed that formaldehyde causes asthma attacks.
     

Best words for natural fabrics

Linen, wool, and cotton have the best hygienic attributes. It is also very pleasant and comfortable to wear silk and bamboo clothing.

  • Silk is the softest fabric. When it’s cold it heats the body (five times warmer than cotton), when it is hot it cools off. Silk is so soft that it does not irritate even the most sensitive skin. In addition, it absorbs from 37 to 39 percent moisture, e.g. two times more than cotton. Even when it absorbs so much moisture product feels completely dry. 
  • Wool protects from cold and heat. Merino wool does it. It is a soft, fluffy, warm, breathable and helps when temperature changes. It is also able to retain heat even after perspiring. It prevents bacterial growth and neutralizes skin secretions. Another unique feature of wool: it cleans itself. You have to air dry it and sweat or other odor will disappear.
  • It is worth to buy bamboo clothing. Clothing made of bamboo material adjusts to the body temperature: warm air cools and the cold keeps body warm. Furthermore, it is one of the most environmentally friendly fabric. Bamboo can grow even in poor soil and are resistant to pests and people do not need to fertilize them or spray against insects.
  • Advantages of natural cotton. Cotton absorbs moisture and allows the body to breathe it is a firm fabric. Natural cotton easily creases.
