The most orthodox shirting fabric, broadcloth is a finely woven single yarn 50/1 fabric that is exquisitely airy, perfect for hot summer days. We love the crisp, silky feel of this fabric which is due to the fine, ultra-long staple cotton being so densely woven. Sumptuous to the touch, this is the finest organic cotton woven we've found.
The quality of fabric is the result between the quality of the farming that grows the plants and the processing that turns plants into fabric. The cotton that makes this broadcloth is an ultra-long staple pima cotton organically grown by Bergman Riviera Farm in Peru, where cotton has a long cultivation history with earliest known examples dating to 6000 BC. It's then shipped by the bale to Tokyo, where it's processed and woven by our new organic-only partner fabric mill.
