Egyptian Cotton vs Pima Cotton – Which is Best?

We hear the names often, but what is the real difference between the two?  Both Egyptian and Pima cotton have the longer, softer fibres associated with much better quality cotton.  Both cottons are made from the Gossypium Barbadense cotton plant (sometimes call Sea Isle Cotton) and a re genetically identical, the only real difference is the location the cotton plants are grown.

Egyptian Cotton

Egyptian Cotton is, almost always, grown in… well, Egypt!  The banks of the Nile River are particularly fertile and make for excellent quality, super-soft, long fibre cotton.  Cotton has been produced in this part of the world since the early 1800s and is internationally known as the best there is.

Pima Cotton

Pima Cotton is grown predominantly in the United States.  From the same plant as Egyptian (Se Isle Cotton), Pima Cotton has the same long fibres and produces the characteristics associated with quality – long fibres, soft feel and great durability.
