Cotton is characterized by high resistance: Textiles made of cotton fibers are very resistant to tearing and abrasion. Cotton can be washed at high temperatures, but colored cotton may lose color intensity over time if washed too hot.
Contrary to what is often assumed, linen is not particularly high-maintenance. Linen fibers are long staple and therefore have a very smooth surface. This makes the material hard-wearing and makes it harder for dirt to penetrate the fibers.
