Transparent Partnership

COTTON USA is the only one that classes 100% of our crop.

COTTON USA has become the cotton the world trusts because of years of transparent partnership. We’re fairly traded. We stand behind our bales—so if something goes wrong, we’re here to make it right. And we’re the only country in the world that tests 100% of all its bales. Not every fourth or fifth. Not even every other. Every single bale. So you know what you order is what you get. It’s just one more example of our commitment to excellence—and your satisfaction.

100% Machine Classed

We use the latest computer classing technology to make sure every bale is fairly and correctly classed. And our stringent processes insure uniformity and consistency within classes.

PBI Traceable

Every bale has its own Permanent Bale Identification (PBI) Tag. As each bale goes through the ginning and classing process, this tag goes along with it. So you always know where, when and how it was harvested, ginned and classed.

100% Tested

Why is it important? So you have the peace of mind knowing that what you order is what you get.
