PREMIUM PURE COTTON FABRIC
Our Premium Pure range is made from a luxury composite cotton fabric of 98% cotton and 2% elastin. The fabric is made with a satin weave, using cotton instead of silk, giving it a lustrous, smooth feel and glossy sheen with a bit of stretch for function.
Premium Pure Cotton is usually made from cotton, using a long-fibre, combed or carded variety which is then mercerised. This alters the chemical structure of the cotton fibre and causes welling of the cell wall of the cotton
fibre. This then brings much of the lustre and softness to the end-product, as well as making the cotton fibre more receptive to dye.
The fabric is sturdy and has a beautiful, voluminous drape. The Premium Pure Cotton also has a distinct but subtle lustre, which gives it a luxurious (but not flashy) appearance. On top of that, it doesn’t rease as much as other types of pure cotton, meaning there's less ironing required to prepare your scrubs for the workday.
