Indigoferas Leon Raglan Shirt is made from American Supima cotton in a fabric that is thick, yet feels cool to the touch due to the long cotton fibers used. The best thing with this shirt is that it will stay soft and feel great to wear after several washes when other cotton garments can get a dry feeling after being used and washed for some time.
This version of Leon is made to celebrate Indigofera's 10th anniversary! With it, it has a special marking on the lower edge that shows that this is made in for the anniversary.
Supima cotton is a word comprised of "superior" and "Pima". Pima is a variety of cotton that has extra long fibers, and Supima is a non-profit organization from the US who promote North American grown cotton.
So what does extra long cotton fibers do to the finished product? In order to make a fabric the cotton fibers are first spun, causing them to twist around each other to form a thread and the longer fibers that are used, the stronger the thread is. A cotton fiber that is longer than the industry average fibre is the basic and most important ingredient in the creation of a long-lasting garment, as it replicates the raw material used to make garments before fast fashion was a thing.
