The advantages of Pima cotton are that it is not easy to pill, the textile is bright, delicate and soft. It is regarded as a luxury product among fine cottons. Therefore, it is also known as the “noble among cottons”.
The easiest to identify Pima cotton fabric is supima.
Supima, in its early days, was a non-profit promotion organization originating in the Americas. Later it gradually became a symbol of American Pima cotton. Nowadays, the brand logo with supima® is 100% American Pima cotton.
Of course, this logo may also be stolen by some businesses, which is also difficult to identify. However, those who can obtain logo authorization are basically large and well-qualified garment factories, so it is easier for big brand companies to trust them.
In fact, the feeling of Pima cotton clothing is not much different from that of ordinary cotton. It just feels more comfortable and is not prone to pilling, which is very good.
