Egyptian cotton is among the best in the world and Brazilian textile companies use Egyptian cotton to get higher prices for their products. Egyptian cotton is of the long fiber variety, which is dense, but results in a light fabric with a soft touch. The use of this kind of cotton is increasing in Brazil.
