What is Bemberg?

Why better than cotton

The reason why Bemberg? is better than cotton

Because Bemberg originates in the natural cotton plant and
is reborn with the infusion of human technology,
it features both the gentleness of natural fibers and the functionality of man-made fibers.
Each Bemberg fiber is extremely fine and has circular cross section,
largely free from the unevenness of natural fibers, and uniform in thickness.
One touch, and the difference is clear - Bemberg is softer than cotton.

Fiber cross section
Bemberg is a near perfect circle in cross section, and has a more uniform thickness than cotton.  This gives Bemberg a smooth, beautiful luster.

Crystal structure
Both Bemberg and cotton contain crystalline and amorphous regions.  But Bemberg has a broader amorphous region, which absorbs and retains moisture.
