The Aegean Region of Turkey is famous for growing high quality cotton, as well as its long weaving traditions. Our home textiles, robes and slow style pieces are made from 100% Aegean cotton and other natural fabrics. All OEKO TEX Certified. This is why we use Aegean Cotton:
Softer & Stronger
Compared with other types of cotton the Aegean has longer fibers, making it especially fluffy and strong. Longer fibers mean smoother, softer threads, less likely to split or break. This simply makes our cotton products last longer. And with washing, Aegean cotton gets even softer over time.
Ever dry off in the bathroom, only to feel a layer of frosty moisture hit your skin as soon as you open the door? The plush, long fibers of an Aegean Cotton towel pushes and absorbs moisture from your body, eliminating the risk of those chilly goosebumps.
While Pima and Egyptian cottons are known to be especially absorbent, luxury forms of cotton, they are also known for holding extreme levels of moisture, and can develop a stale smell. Aegean cotton is different in that it’s very absorbent but still dries quickly, making it ideal for warm and humid environments like the bathroom.
Natural and Sustainable
Synthetic fibers have been known to aggravate sensitive skin, and some types may even contain traces of chemicals that could cause widespread irritation. Aegean cotton is naturally hypoallergenic, making it the perfect option for those prone to sensitivities. Cotton is also less likely to produce the dreaded static-cling that synthetic fibers are generally known for.
From seeds in the ground to the finished products, the entire process of making our Aegean Cotton items, all happens in the Denizli region of Turkey, requiring a minimum of transportation. This reduces the carbon footprint of our finished products.
In addition our manufacturers uses only high quality OEKO TEX Certified yarns to make our products making them last for years. Being a natural fibre, it is also biodegradable.
