Why Wear 100% Cotton

ChooseCottonModule

When founder Rochelle Huppin laid the foundation for Chefwear, the biggest component on her road to success was providing comfortable chef pants in a market where chef uniforms were designed using 100% polyester and heavy polyester blends. With the introduction of her 100% cotton baggy chef pants, a new trend was born. From there, Chefwear has continued to create soft, breathable styles made with 100% cotton in all categories. We believe a happy chef is a comfortable chef.

Along with a soft, breathable touch and feel, cotton offers numerous advantages that make our 100% cotton styles desirable.

Cotton is super absorbent and easy to wash

The natural fibers present in cotton allow for better circulation. This helps to absorb moisture and heat to keep your body cool and dry while working in the hot kitchen. The majority of Chefwear’s chef pants are designed using a lightweight, 100% cotton fabric. We offer different styles and fits for every body type including the widest selection of women’s choices

Cotton is a fiber that becomes stronger when saturated. Stains do not bind to the fibers of your chef jackets or chef pants, which makes those garments easy to wash. If properly cared for, these pieces of clothing are ready to wear right out of the dryer. You can choose from two 100% cotton jacket categories, Premier and 5-Star. Premier chef jackets are crafted with high-end cotton while 5-star chef jackets are designed with cotton twill.

Cotton is biodegradable

Cotton is considered a renewable resource and during processing, less than 10% of the fiber is considered waste. You can also choose organic cotton such as our 5-Star Traditional Organic Jacket, which uses no pesticides during the growing process and is even better for the environment.

Cotton is hypoallergenic

Because cotton is hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant, cotton is the best choice for people who suffer from allergies or have extremely sensitive skin that is easily irritated. Chefwear chef hats are all 100% cotton unless otherwise specified, but this is beneficial to any chef as heat easily leaves through the top of your head rather than being trapped.

Cotton is soft

When wearing cotton, it feels very light on the skin. It doesn’t rub in the wrong ways or leave you feeling itchy. Cotton is soft when it’s picked in the fields, so when transferred to an article of clothing, that quality follows. There are different types of cotton that might make one version feel softer than the other, (think about high count bed sheets), but in the end, cotton in general is soft to the touch. Even after a few washes, a cotton twill will feel just as soft as a royal Pima cotton.
