Soft and strong, lightweight and protective. Whether it is a knitted jersey or elevated woven piece, cotton is undeniably one of the hardest working fabrics in your wardrobe. The extensive variety of pieces that can be made from this versatile fibre makes it one of the most popular materials around.
Cotton has been cultivated for centuries, and there are over 300 varieties available. The quality is defined by the length of each fibre – the longer the staple length, the smoother and softer the fabric. Egyptian, Sea Island and Pima cottons are considered the finest types around, and make for particularly sharp shirts, suits, T-shirts and accessories.
The HUGO BOSS Cotton Commitment outlines our approach to responsible fashion from the sourcing of cotton, the use of land, chemicals and water, as well as the socio-economic factors involved. You can find out more on our corporate website.
