Egyptian Karnak-Menoufi Mako cotton

A legend rediscovered 

 It was in Egypt’s rich Nile River Delta that ça va de soi discovered Karnak-Menoufi, a variety that is as ancient as it is rare. This extra-long-staple cotton darkened by the Nile’s silt is grown only during years when nature and the soil agree – align – to produce the right conditions. This controlled appellation cotton is so rare that we compare it to a vintage wine. After a ten-year hiatus, this cotton is gradually being farmed again, although quantities are so limited that stocks are always auctioned. A true legend for people in the trade, the ultra-fine spun cotton will follow you through all seasons and lends itself beautifully to clean-lined models that showcase its unique splendour and fluidity.
