Sea Island Cotton

The most exclusive cotton in the world

Discovered over 300 years ago, Caribbean Sea Island cotton stands for exclusivity and uniqueness. These are also the core values of Zimmerli of Switzerland, where tradition meets modernity.

Caribbean Feeling

The cotton plant, which thrives in Barbados under particularly favorable weather conditions, stands equally for robustness and unsurpassable fineness.

The unique fiber achieved world fame early on. British author Ian Fleming dressed his heroic character James Bond in Sea Island cotton as early as the 1950s. Nothing else fit so perfectly under his tailor-made suit.

One of a kind

Extraordinary are not only the airy light wearing feeling as well as the silky texture, the characteristics of Gossypium barbadense also speak for the superior qualities. The fibers of the cotton plant are exceptionally long, which makes them particularly strong and resistant.

These properties form the perfect basis for the finest undershirts and briefs as well as loungewear and pajamas from Zimmerli of Switzerland.
