Cotton is a natural fiber spun from the cotton plant. It is one of the oldest and most widely used natural fibers in existence today, and it is often spun into yarn or thread. All purses/totes at Paulette's panoply are made with 100% cotton yarn; which makes them durable, easy to care for, and breathable.
Bags/totes made with other yarn such as wool or acrylic (except felted wool fabric) do not have the durability of 100% cotton. If I have a bag that I enjoy using, I like it to be durable. They are machine washable and dryable on delicate or may be hand washed and laid flat to dry. I recommend taking them out of the dryer before fully dry if there are any embellishments on the outside, in order to preserve their shape.
