The natural properties of cotton

Cotton fiber is soft, absorbent, and breathable, making it perfectly suitable for clothing and our artisan cotton scarves, as these are traditionally worn close to the skin. Thermoregulation, or proper conduction of heat, ensures that your body stays cool in summer and warm in winter. Cotton is also non-allergenic, not an unimportant fact for people with sensitive skin!

Due to the unique fiber structure, cotton scarves breathe better and are more comfortable than oil-based synthetic neck wear. Cotton holds up to 27 times its weight in water and becomes even stronger when wet. There is also no risk of any static cling with cotton fiber, as it can’t hold an electric charge.

Something more about OTOP

Let us explain why Metiisto Fashion is such a big fan of the OTOP, or One Tambon One Product program. This local entrepreneurship stimulus program aims to support locally made products from Thailand’s 7.255 sub-districts, also known as tambons.

The OTOP program encourages village communities to improve local products’ quality and marketing, selecting one superior product from each tambon to receive formal branding as its “starred OTOP product.” It provides over 26,600 participants from various handicraft industries with both a regional and international stage to promote their products.

OTOP has helped spread income to many people in the villages. It has allowed people producing handicrafts to feel they are part of the global economy. No wonder the number of active members under this program increases each year.
