Where does Giza 45 cotton come from ?
The precious Giza 45 cotton is an Egyptian cotton. It bears the name of the village where this variety of cotton originates.
It is grown on the banks of the Nile in a highly fertile zone, with its ideal climatic conditions that bestow the cotton’s reputation for excellence.
Its production compromises less than 0.5% of world cotton production, which is why it is so rare and exclusive. It ranks as the finest long-staple cotton in the world.

Softness and shine
Aigredoux offers its customers the choice to use Giza 45 cotton for their linen orders, giving life to fabrics of exceptional quality and softness.
