Egyptian cotton is acknowledged as the best quality, long staple cotton in the world. Although it historically all came from Egypt, today “Egyptian” cotton is grown worldwide. It still complies with the original Egyptian standards of fibre length being within the range of 31.5mm - 48mm.
Egyptian cotton grown in Egypt is considered the best due to the particular climatic conditions and the fertility of the soil along the Nile in its delta area. The Nile is like a natural irrigation system for the land area immediately surrounding it, and combined with the sun and rainfall, it produces unmatchable conditions for growing cotton. It is a climatic paradise for cotton growing and the secret behind the now, “world famous” Egyptian cotton. Egyptian farmers have learnt how to grow superior cotton plants without the use of growing agents and chemicals. The worldwide popularity and demand for Egyptian cotton has led other countries to produce this cotton type.
