The best characteristics
The most important quality feature is the fibre/staple length of the unprocessed cotton. Our cotton is long-staple quality, is fine and has a silky shine.
Only extra-long-staple cotton guarantees the special feel, look and wearing comfort of our collection. The brilliance of the colours in the fabric is also brought out by this high-quality cotton.By the way: it is thanks to this cotton that our non-iron shirts are breathable. The skin is protected against heat build-up and moisture, preventing an unpleasant feeling of sweating.
The brand name Supima is synonymous with the finest extra-long-staple cotton worldwide. Shirts and blouses from ETERNA made from Supima cotton are characterised by particular softness, a natural, classy shine, an attractive drape and high tear-resistance.
Around 35 kilograms of fibres can be extracted from 100 kilograms of harvested cotton.
We need around 320 grams of cotton for an ETERNA shirt.
