Tanguis Cotton

At the end of the nineteenth century, when a large number of farmers abandoned the cultivation of cotton because of a pest, Fermin Tangüis achieved the development of a new variety of fiber seed thas was long and thick and it was easy to weaving and dyeing and also had such hidrophility thas was able to produce fabrics of excelent quality.

One of a kind

Whiteness, strength and softness are some of the main characteristics of Tangüis cotton, a long and uniform fiber.

This highly absorbent fiber is able to retain 24 to 27 times its own weight. It is said that garments made from Tangüis cotton breathe, as this fiber absorbs and releases transpiration quickly.

Algodon Tangüis, one of the finest fibers in the world.

Pima Cotton

This fiber has extraordinary characteristics of length, fineness and smoothness; Which makes possible the production of uniform and resistant yarns destined to the manufacture of textile garments for the most demanding markets of the world.
