100% Egyptian Cotton / Fil d’Ecosse
Our Essentials are entirely made (100%) Egyptian Giza cotton.
Our unique Fil d’Ecosse / Cotton Lisle is made from cotton exclusively grown on a small plot located east of the Nile Delta and is often referred to as the “White Gold”.
This cotton, well known for its finesse and outstanding quality, is hand-picked, guaranteeing the highest levels of purity, all without chemicals. The harvest is done at maturity when the capsules burst and release the fibers.
Our selected cotton lisle is a cotton with "very long fiber", accounting for only about 3% of the world's total cotton production. The length of the fiber is more than 34/36 mm and its uniformity is remarkable displaying a high level of strength.
Furthermore, we are proud of our Oeko Certification - Tex Standart 100. Our yarns are only dyed with coloring substances that meet the ecological and human requirements established by the Oeko-Tex brand. Our socks also undergo and antibacterial treatment
The socks are initially knitted in Italy with traditional machines of more than 50 years, using a relatively high level of needles (240).
They are then hand finished with traditional hand linking of the socks (Smooth Toe Seam), resulting in exceptional comfort and preventing pressure sores and irritation.
