Pima cotton from Peru is renowned for its softness,
brilliant luster and strong staple, characteristics
that classify it as a luxury fiber. It is the length
of a fiber’s staple that determines the softness,
smoothness and durability of the yarn and finished
garment. Peruvian pima cotton has a longer staple
than other cotton, which accounts for its superior
quality and gives it its luxury status.
Each precious boll is carefully harvested by hand
in order to winnow out the scratchy impurities which
affect the smoothness and luster of the yarn. The
hand-harvesting method results in brilliant white
bolls that absorb dye deeply, permitting a wide
range of vibrant color choices.
Grown in the northern coastal valley, where the
soil and weather offer optimal growing conditions,
this finest of cottons has been cultivated for thousands
of years and is prized throughout the world.
Luxurious, yet practical, pima cotton garments wear
well, grow softer over time, and are easy to care
