Less than 1% of the cotton grown and manufactured in the world is Supima cotton.
Supima cotton is different than your everyday cotton. It has a longer fiber than ordinary cotton, which makes for a sturdy tee that is less likely to pill. Your 1898 tee will last longer than your other tees.
Once our Supima cotton is made into fabric, it is washed, dyed, then washed again for softness. We attribute our vibrant colors and sought after softness to the weight and density of our Supima. The color won’t fade and the softness only improves over time, assuming you launder it on a regular basis (but if you don’t, your secret is safe with us).
