Day 5: Research your favorite article of clothing. 

My favorite piece of clothing is this black hoodie I bought from the brand Lazy Oaf. It is made from 100% cotton.

The first recorded use of cotton was found in India and Pakistan around 6000 B.C.E. The species of cotton that was used were Gossypium herbaceum and Gossypium arboretum which originated in India and Africa. By medieval times, the use of cotton spread all across Asia and Europe. A new species was discovered in the 18th century and replaced the use of the other species. This new species was taken to America, where it was farmed on plantations is the south, and became one of the biggest industries that relied on the labor of slaves. By the 18th century, the spinning machine and the cotton gin was introduced in America, which skyrocketed the manufacture of cotton material. Cotton was intended for clothes, and to this day it makes up most clothes people sell, buy, and wear. Today, China is the worlds largest cotton producer.

I like this hoodie a lot because of the three-eyed cat motif. It gives a good mix of playful and spooky vibes, which is right up my alley. The three-eyed cat is a mythical creature that has a strong spiritual meaning. The third eye represents the third eye chakra, which is a symbol for wisdom, intuition, and psychic powers. The cat is also a symbol widely known for its spiritual and witchy energy.
