The quality of cotton used to manufacture cushions varies from country to country. Different countries use different colors, the texture and thickness of the cushion, and even the fibers are significantly different. As a general rule of thumb, a heavier type of cotton will be used for higher quality products such as pillow cases, whereas the lighter cotton used for clothing is used for smaller size cushions such as foot rests or dog beds. The type of cotton used for a cushion also determines its absorption rate and absorbency. Higher quality cushions are called sateen and are composed of medium density fibers with a high thread count, whereas lower quality products are termed satin and are usually composed of the thinner type of thread. In general, natural fibers have a higher absorbency than synthetic fibers and a significantly lower moisture absorption rate.
