We craft some of Sunspel’s most luxurious garments from Sea Island cotton, the finest and rarest cotton in the world. Sea Island cotton has a longer staple length and finer texture than any other, making it unusually difficult to grow and to spin. There is, however, no other cotton that has quite the same extraordinarily soft feel against the skin.
Our long history of working with this rare cotton dates back to the 19th century. Today we source our Sea Island cotton from a few small-scale farmers in the Caribbean and work with specialist technicians in Switzerland to spin and knit our unique Sea Island fabrics. Sunspel’s Sea Island cotton remains the last word in luxury for underwear, T-Shirts, shirts, polo shirts and
knitted cotton garments.
