Belize Cotton

Silky, curly, rigid and with a good body: these are characteristics that make Belize cotton so exclusive

Belize cotton by Cariaggi comes from one of the oldest varieties with extra long staple to come from the Americas. It is grown on a small scale in a selected area where the soil and climate are ideal for producing an exquisite, unique fibre.

Harvesting is done by hand to avoid damaging the fibres and to obtain a silky, brilliant yarn. The fibres are classified in two stages: before cleaning and after baling. In line with Cariaggi’s philosophy, cultivation has low environmental impact and the fields are rotated annually to safeguard the territory.
