Cotton In Excellent Shape
For Ramato collections we select only Egyptian cotton, considered the best in the world.
The Nile creates an oasis that enjoys extraordinary climatic conditions, ideal for the production of Extra Long Staple quality cotton: the longer the fiber, the better the quality and strength of the raw material.
Brightness And Softness
The degree of brilliance of our cotton is among the highest of the Egyptian Extra Long Staple and guarantees a particular brightness to the fabric.
After numerous washes the silky handfeel improves, increasing the softness and the sensation of freshness of the garment, maintaining the original brilliance.
No Pilling e No Abrasions
Our technology enables a compact spinning, which guarantees no pilling, even after numerous washes.
The fiber has a highly uniform structure, which gives the garment greater tenacity during washing and resistance to abrasion, for a long-lasting garment.
The superior density and twisting of the fibers make our cotton garments easily washable in a domestic washing machine.
Sustainable From The Beginning
Our cotton is harvested exclusively by hand, in order to always collect the staples at the right degree of ripeness at each step.
Care of crops and manual harvesting avoid the use of defoliants and other chemicals normally used in mechanized harvesting.
We only choose cotton certified GOTS> (Global Organic Textile Standard), BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) and Oekotex 100.
The GOTS standard sets requirements on ecological and worker conditions. The raw materials are solely of organic origin. Organic production maintains soil fertility without the use of toxic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
Organic fabrics are processed with the lowest possible environmental impact, with strict controls on the use of chemical inputs.
BCI growers minimize the impact of pesticides, favoring pest control techniques and promoting responsible management of water resources. They also deal with soil health and promote biodiversity. The BCI standard promotes labor principles and rights and improves agricultural processes, to ensure that the quality of the fiber remains high.
The Oeko Tex 100 standard tests fabrics for harmful substances, in order to ensure that they are harmless to human health. The test is conducted by independent institutes, and considers numerous elements that can be harmful to humans. The criteria for these tests are globally standardized and are constantly updated based on new scientific information.
