Our Italian supplier, Filmar, has imported Egyptian cotton to Italy since the 1970s. In 2009 they opened a facility to process the natural cotton at the source and improve their supply chain. By having this facitlity they have been able to develop new ways to work with local farmers, from seed selection all the way to yarn dyeing, with support of the UNIDO project (United Nations Industrial Development Organization).

This facility is GOTS certified and part of our 100% traceable Pique supply chain. Head all the way down to explore the other facilities.
