Organic, Sustainable and Ethical Home
We have the pleasure and the advantage to work with the best cotton in the world. “Certified Organic Pima Cotton”. This is one of the reasons why our products are special and unique. The quality of the fiber, the silky texture and the softest touch, is thanks to this tiny and amazing plant.
Pima cotton, Gossypium barbadense, also known as extra-long staple cotton. Is a plant that grows cotton with unusually long, silky fibers.
Our Pima cotton is cultivated in organic farms in Peru, free of pesticides or fertilizers, where cotton has been grown for at least 3.000 years. Peru has a strong history and traditions of how to grow their cotton, that are still very much alive.
The local eco-system is perfect for the Pima cotton to grow it finest characteristics. The supply of water for irrigation comes through raining and melting water from the Andes mountains and sunlight is abundant.
Farmers realized that their health improved when growing organically. the cost of producing a crop was lower, as they did not have to buy expensive chemicals. No ground-water is allowed in irrigation, only natural water. Pest control is carried out using only 100% natural methods. To protect this valuable and rare cotton strain, it is still gently harvested by hand.
