Why cotton matters to Pink


Pink is specific about where its cotton is grown. It is either from Giza, in Egypt, or Supima grown in California, USA. Both are known for their exceptional quality of cotton, both creating extra-long staple cotton with long individual fibres. The length of these cotton fibres creates a yarn that is both soft yet robust, that not only keeps its quality but which only softens with every wear.

All of our cottons have long staple fibres, which means there are less exposed ends on the yarn. This is crucial to the long life of the shirt: cotton woven from shorter staple length is more likely to fray, pill and lose colour. Egyptian Cotton is an extra-long staple cotton, making it exceptionally soft, vibrant and high performance. The longest staples are Giza 45 and 87 Variety.

USA (Superior Pima)

Supima (Superior Pima) is an Extra Long Staple cotton known for its long and fine white fibres. It is grown mainly in California and its identifying characteristics are the absence of pollution of the fibres, due to mechanical harvesting, and a remarkable resistance to pilling.

One of the most ancient and precious cotton types in the world. Its production, equal to just 0.006% of the world’s long-staple cotton, is now concentrated mainly in Barbados, Antigua and Jamaica. The annual production of Sea Island Cotton is just 130 bales (110 million bales of cotton produced annually).
