Taking care of your Pima cottonUpdated 4 months ago

We work with exclusive partners in Peru to make sure that our Pima cotton is the softest, most durable cotton on the market. Take proper care of it and you’ll enjoy pieces made from Pima cotton for years. 


  1. A little flip.

    Whether it’s a tee or a polo, take a second to flip it inside out before you wash it. Not only will this wash the garment better, it helps avoid tugging on any loose threads and will keep detailing looking extra crisp.

  2. Keep it cool. 

    There’s no need for time-consuming hand washing—our Pima cotton can be machine washed in cold water.

  3. Don’t be too intense

    Keep Pima cotton out of the dryer. Exposure to the intense heat will lead to considerable shrinkage, while also dulling colors and weakening the fabric.
    Instead, for any Pima cotton polos, button-up shirts or tees, try to lay them flat to dry, when possible. If you hang them, use a sturdy hanger, sized for your shoulders

  4. The perfect store

    Pima cotton is easy to store: polos, tees and button-up shirts can be neatly folded or hung on a sturdy hanger. We’d recommend folding tees and polos, and hanging shirts. 

Note that taking care of our 100% cotton products are the same process as our 100% pima cotton. 

Cotton is incredibly versatile. It keeps you warm but won’t cause you to overheat. It’s soft to the touch, but very durable. And, perhaps most importantly, it’s pretty easy to take care of.
