Supima® Certification

Supima® Certification is a certificate issued by the Supima® Organization. First established in 1954, this is the organization responsible for marketing and promoting the Supima® Cotton and, whenever necessary, defend it. 

In short, the Supima® Certification guarantees that every certified company is an official licensee of what may be very well considered the world’s finest cotton.

If you want to know where the cotton you use in your quality products comes from, our Supima® Certification assures you of its origin: it is American grown, with a proud heritage and the premium worldwide recognized quality that makes a difference.

To learn more about the luxurious features of this type of cotton, you can read all about it in our dedicated section. But if it’s information on what is the Supima® Certification and what it means to the industry or the consumer, then read along. 


What is the Supima® Certification?

The Supima® Certification is one of the many efforts made by the organization to guarantee the legitimate use of the American grown Pima cotton.

It allows for any company within the entire Supima cotton supply chain to become fully licensed and gain access to the brand.

When the final customer is aware the entire supply chain can receive a Supima® Certification, he or she can be sure that the product is trademarked and that it either contains US Pima cotton or is 100% made of it.

The Supima® Certification and license is non-transferable.

That means a certified company cannot pass down the trademark down the line, which is one of the main purposes of the Supima® Certification program: to globally promote and protect the trademark while generating awareness and increasing its consumption.

How important is the Supima® Certification?

The Supima® Certification is used in many countries around the world. The name itself adds value to any company, as the US Pima cotton represents less than 1% of cotton worldwide.

One needs only to pay close attention to a few of the brands working with a Supima® Certification across the fashion industry (but not only) to truly understand its importance.
