WHAT IS PIMA COTTON ?
Pima’s Cotton characteristics
1.Extra long staple (ELS) cotton
2. Organic & Fair Trade
Although the choice of an organic cotton is made as a matter of principles, a cotton of such rarity as Pima cotton could not be grown in any other way than with the utmost respect for its nature, that is, without chemicals or genetically modified seeds.
Our supplier Bergman Rivera has been producing organic and fair trade cotton for more than 30 years. They were the first in Latin America to obtain the G.O.T.S. certificate from production to confection. This certificate is one of the most demanding worldwide. Bergman Rivera’s involvement in social matters is unquestionable and his organic production system goes beyond mere fashion wave.
Conventional cotton production uses 25% of the insecticides and 10% pesticides that exist in the world, so, if as consumers we choose organic cotton we contribute to a sustainable consumption, that does not harm the soil nor the people who cultivate it.
3. Best for your baby
We know that baby and kids’ clothes get dirty easily, then get washed and… get dirty again. The life cycle of these clothes is often shortened, they shrink and/or often become rough.
Our clothes, made of 100% Pima cotton, do not shrink while washed and are very resistant. Its softness increases wash after wash, this is one of the most important features of this particular cotton variety.
The added value of being organic is that it offers the maximum respect for your baby’s delicate skin. Without any doubt, Pima Cotton is the best cotton that exists for baby and children’s clothing.
