What is Giza?

Giza is not only the home of the Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx; it is also the name the Egyptians gave their highly acclaimed cottons, the famous Giza 45 and Giza 87. These Extra Long Staple cottons, grown in the fertile soil of the Nile Delta, both belong to the most precious and exclusive cottons in the world and represent only a small percentage of Egypt’s total annual cotton production.

“Giza 45 is the “Queen of all cottons”. It distinguishes itself thanks to its fibre length, the longest of all Egyptians cottons (36mm), which makes it possible to achieve the finest and softest shirting fabrics with a yarn count of 140/2 or higher, up to 330/3.

Giza 87″ is the cotton with the highest degree of brilliance and guarantees a particular luminosity and bright whiteness to the fabric. In fact, through numerous washes, the softness increases even further and its original brightness is absolutely maintained.
