Sea Island is the world’s rarest and finest cotton, and makes for the softest, most luxurious fabric.
Although named after a group of islands off the coast of South Carolina, Sea Island cotton (Gossypium barbadense) has been grown in the Caribbean since the 15th century. But this remarkable cotton’s origins can, in fact, be traced back to Latin America. Carbon dating has revealed that Sea Island cotton was being cultivated on the coasts of Ecuador and Peru over 6,000 years ago – quite a pedigree.
