History of Rags – Where Do They Come From?

Latest company news about History of Rags – Where Do They Come From?
You might be thinking, “What could be more boring than the history of cotton rags?” But wait!
There’s a lot more to the history of rags.
Where do rags come from? One major source is clothing. That’s a little more interesting. We’re more interested in clothing than rags, right? What are clothes made of? Fabric, of course. Let’s dig a little deeper.

What are fabrics and where do fabrics come from?
Broadly speaking, there are natural and synthetic fibers that can be spun into fabric.
Some natural fibers have been in use for thousands of years, others are more recent. Silk comes from the cocoons of certain moth caterpillars and was first woven into fabric in China 6,000 years ago. Linen is made from fibers from the flax plant and dates back to at least ancient Egypt. Canvas was originally made from hemp. Wool, of course, comes from sheep and other animals, while cotton comes from the cotton plant.
Uses of Fabric Today
All of these materials are in use today because they have specific properties that are beneficial in some applications but not in others. Canvas is great for sails, but not for underwear - can you imagine that? Wool is great in Alaska, but not so comfortable in parts of sunny Southern California. Get it?
Turning Fabrics into Rags
Now, the same thing applies when those fabrics are turned into rags. Items start out as something you see (or wear) around you every day. T-shirts, towels, blankets, and sheets! They all start out as fabric and then become (or repurpose) rags! Some rags are better for certain uses than others. SJS Group has been in the rag business for years and can point you in the direction of the best rag for your job. We have one of the largest selections of rags in the industry.
