Indigo Organic Cotton
The magic of Japanese cotton is in it’s short fibres, which are more elastic than other varieties of cotton, and have an exceptional ability to trap air. This gives fabric enhanced breathability in hot weather, insulation in cold, and also makes it particularly soft.
Every stage of the cotton’s cultivation is handled with extreme care to ensure it’s organic origins and certification. Each seed is planted one at a time, without the use of chemicals, and all weeds are removed by hand. The Sebastian Conran collection was designed to showcase the pure beauty of the material, while creating simple and useful products for the home.
