WHITE COTTON / WILD COTTON Peru [Primitive organic cotton from Peru, the home of the cotton flower]

White cotton/ Wild cotton is organic cotton produced in Peru, which is the home of the cotton flower.
There are two different White cotton yarns with different bleeds.
We also have very rare Wild cotton.

SACHAGREEN PROJECT

The Sachagreen Project (SACHA means “forest” in the Quechua language) is the organic project currently in progress in Shanao Lamas, Peru.
Bergman Rivera SAC, the pioneer of organic cotton in Peru, plays a major role in establishing various initiatives.

The Organic Farming Training Center was built and the Internet Cabin, an office with Internet connection, is also being set up.
We provide total support for the Internet cabin running costs (equipment, furniture, salary of instructors and maintenance fees).

WHITE COTTON / WILD COTTON meets PANOCO

We started to import organic cotton yarn from Peru in 1996.
At the time, most of the yarns were mainly imported from the United States, but we started importing from Peru since we had discovered that cotton originated in Latin and South America.

Wild cotton and White cotton yarns are all imported from Peru.

It is said the initial colour of the original cotton bleed is brown.
However, the global colour cotton market is diminishing year after year, as is production.
We joined the constructive cultivation of Wild cotton in 2007, in order to challenge this diminishing market.
