Everything you ever wanted to know about cotton gauze

Tout ce que vous avez toujours voulu savoir sur la gaze de coton

What is cotton gauze?

Cotton gauze is a thin, lightweight fabric with an almost transparent appearance. This fabric is made up of a weave of spaced, crossed threads, producing a flexible and incredibly stable material, ideal for high-end bed linen . You probably already know it, it's the little square of white fabric in your first aid kit!

And the double cotton gauze?

Double cotton gauze is simply a layering of two layers of cotton gauze, connected at regular intervals with undetectable stitches. The higher the number of layers of cotton gauze, the less transparent the resulting fabric will be.

Where does cotton gauze come from?

This weaving owes its name to the city of Gaza, in Palestine, where it comes from. Cotton gauze has been woven since the Middle Ages in France, notably in Lyon (headquarters of the Les pensionnaires brand!) and in Paris. It became fashionable in the 17th and 19th centuries thanks to dancers who used it to create their tutus.
