A Piqué or cross-tuck is a distinct and easily recognizable relief patterning that is made on a single jersey base structure (a double jersey structure is also possible). Because of its relief patterning, the piqué has a high absorption capacity, and is mostly used in leisure shirts.
Our pique fabrics are GOTS certified. Ecological Textiles only produces cotton fabrics that are made from certified organic origin. This means that no herbicides or insecticides were used on the fields and that no GMO was applied. The GOTS certificate is your guarantee that no harmful chemicals were used in the entire production chain, that strict social standards were followed (fair trade, no child labour, healthy working conditions). In short: GOTS guarantees that the highest ecological and social standards were followed.
Like all our other organic fabrics the piqués are made in Turkey, in factories with which we have a long and stable working relation. Only the superb so called Aegean organic cotton is used, which is grown in the districts close to the Aegean sea and that is famous for it's long fiber length, good spinnability, softness and beautiful colour. The is also were the knitting mill is situated. The proximity of raw material and the mill where the cotton is processed results in a lower carbon footprint. The fabrics are transported by truck to our warehouse in The Netherlands.
