Not Your Average CottonLuxury, quality and craftsmanship are the benchmarks of American-grown, extra-long staple cotton. Premier brands across fashion, accessories and home markets look to create value and a point of difference for consumers, with an emphasis on premium fabrics. Supima’s American-grown heritage and premium qualities have played a vital role in this effort.
EXTRA LONG STAPLE
Not all cottons are created equal. Supima cotton is a superior type of cotton grown in the USA. It represents less than 1% of cotton grown in the world. What makes Supima unique to other cottons is the extra-long staple fibre that gives the cotton its premium properties: Strength, Softness and Colour retention.
Supima is twice as strong as regular cotton, which makes for extraordinarily resilient products. The longer fibre resists pulling, breaking and tearing resulting in fashion and home products that are incredibly resilient and keep their form for a longer-lasting product.
Supima is inherently softer and more luxurious due to its extra-long staple fibre measuring 1.5 inches vs. 1 inch for regular cotton. The additional length of the fibre makes for a smoother surface and produces a softer fabric that resists pilling. This means that your products will feel sumptuously soft and only get softer with time.
