What is Supima Fabric?

  • The fibers of the Gossypium barbadense plant are used to make Supima cloth.
  • It's a high-quality cotton fabric that's both comfortable and robust.
  • The majority of cotton fibers are about 20 millimeters long, while Pima is an extra-long staple fiber that is around 34 millimeters long.

  • Supima is a combination of the words "Superior" and "Pima."
  • Supima cotton production increased from 100,000 bales per year in the 1980s to over 800,000 bales in 2007.
  • 90% of Supima cotton is exported from the United States, with the majority going to other countries for the production of yarn, completed textiles, apparel, sheets, and towels, which are then re-exported to the United States for sale.
  • China, India, Pakistan, Turkey, and Peru are the top five Supima cotton importers.

How to Judge the Authenticity?

  • The ASA has recognized Supima cotton as authentic.
  • If Supima fabric does not contain the ASA seal, it is not authentic Supima, and some Supima fabric is USDA certified as organic.

Care Instructions

  • To avoid shrinkage, use cold water. We recommend using a soft detergent and washing on a gentle cycle.
  • Avoid putting your Supima cotton shirts in the dryer for optimal results. Allow them to air dry on a drying rack or clothesline instead.
