Quality: Consistency Means Fewer Reject Issues For You.
When we use the word “quality” in regards to U.S. cotton, what we really mean is “consistency.” Consistency is the most significant variable in establishing quality and controlling waste. You are more likely to get consistent color across multiple dye lots with far fewer neps and pils. And a final product that has the look, feel and durability that the consumer wants. As PVH’s former V.P. for sourcing puts it: “With U.S. cotton, you're likely to have fewer timing and reject issues due to fewer problems with suppliers.”
Why Pay a Premium? For the Savings.
Vertically integrated fabric and garment manufacturers know that starting with a high quality raw material like U.S. cotton can result in a lower overall total cost depending on the final product. Though you may be paying more for U.S. cotton, because there is less contamination, less waste and higher efficiencies, you can experience higher recovery rates, less rework and better dye lots, etc.
Traceability for Peace of Mind
Virtually all U.S. cotton is classed and traceable to the gin. Classing is done in state-of-the-art laboratories. Permanent Bale Identification (PBI) tags are attached at the gin when the sample is taken. These tags trace the bale back to gin. Best of all, the U.S. system’s transparency allows for constant monitoring and improvement. We are 100% committed to traceability, transparency—and your peace of mind.
