Resource Overview History

Originally cultivated in Persia and India, cotton eventually spread east and west through contact with Islam. While not having the same prestigious status as silk, cotton had a probably greater social and historical significance: it was more readily available, and it was easier to wash than wool and silken textiles, and could also be used to form quilted armor which was useful against projectiles such as arrows and darts in combination with other forms of armor.
