ORGANIC PIMA COTTON FROM PERU
Pima cotton is known as the world’s softest cotton and is primarily harvested in Peru. The Pima Cotton from Bergman Riviera we use in our production is entirely handpicked, even though using machines could make the process about 300 times faster and most cotton isn’t handpicked anymore since the 1950’s. Our organic cotton supplier does not only carry the GOTS label but is also fairtrade certified. They work with over 500 farmer families in three different regions of the country.
Pima Cotton is considered the superior blends of cotton and is extremely durable and absorbent. Jungle Folk wants to guarantee the best quality to its customers, that’s why we have chosen to work with Pima Cotton for our basics making them long-lasting. Fabrics made from pima cotton can be worn about 50% longer than fabrics made from conventional cotton.
