Cotton: material for mask

Disposable mask made from polypropylene was common in Japan before outbreak coronavirus, but it is difficult to buy it now. People start to use cotton masks now.

Japan used to import cotton for spinning and export its product. But now spinning industry is disappeared from Japan.

There is hardly chance to see cotton field in Japan, so I had never seen plant of cotton until visiting Brazil.
