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.
