80% Mako cotton, 12% cashmere, 7% polyamide, 1% elastane
Mako cotton plants are grown and well-managed in a small part of the Nile Delta – representing 0.5% of the total annual Egyptian cotton production. Mako cotton is picked exclusively by hand and that enables the avoidance of the usual usage of defoliants and other harsh chemical products that are commonly used for machinery designed for automatic plant-picking. Mako cotton fibers are remarkably long and therefore they have the unique and rare ability of being spun into a much smoother, finer, and stronger form of yarn than any other existing cotton in the world.
