The underwear made from coveted Giza 70-cotton.
Delicate, silky, like wearing nothing – yet hardwearing, stays in shape and easy to care for. Made by NOVILA, the underwear specialists from the Black Forest.
Even with the most expensive underwear you never really know about the origin of the cotton. This underwear has nothing to hide: Its “raw material” is the precious, long-staple Giza 70 maco cotton that only grows in a small area of the Nile Delta near Alexandria in Egypt. It is one of the best varieties of cotton in the world and is so rare that it is never used in mass production but purely for small limited underwear editions.
There are 15,000 metres (16,404 yds) of yarn in just one shirt, delicately spun, gassed and mercerised.
The precious cotton is then twined in Italy until it is as smooth as silk and so fine that a finished shirt only weighs about 100g (3.5 oz). Yet it is so tough that it hardly shows any wear or pilling. Made with an intricate drop stitch pattern – smooth without any irritating side seams. The delicately ribbed drop stitch pattern lays flat and smooth so it’s always comfortable.
100% cotton. Colour: White. Machine wash. Comes in an attractive box.
