White, bright and silky, Giza 87 is an extra-long Egyptian cotton that enables Albini Group to create extraordinary fabrics, that get better with every wash.
Albini Group exalts the characteristics of Giza 87, creating fabrics which do not in any way degrade over time. On the contrary, through numerous washes, the softness further increases, and the freshness of the material and its original brightness is absolutely maintained.
The degree of brilliance of Giza 87, equal to an Rd of 74.8, is amongst the highest of all the Extra Long Staple Egyptian cottons, and guarantees a particular luminosity to the fabric.
The production process, from collection to weaving guarantees elimination of any potential contamination present in the raw material. Albini Group uses cutting-edge technology during the spinning process, whereby the cotton passes in front of a camera that identifies polluted fibres, eliminating them through a powerful jet of air, in combination with a yarn clearing made during winding.
The result is a shiny fabric, supremely soft: a feeling to try wearing every day a shirt made with Giza 87.
