There are no chemical pollutions, without harmful components and chemical remnants in the textiles made from colored cotton, because the textile processes are without blanching, printing and dyeing, sanitizing. It is a typical health care products which are welcome widely. The author has reviewed the research progresses and industrialization trends, and analysed the problems in the coloured cotton production, and also the solutions have been discussed in this paper.
