Our high quality niche & blemish free cotton offerings
In 1492, Columbus took the longest cotton from the Caribbean Islands and introduced it to the world as “The Sea Island Cotton”. The Americans and Egyptians adapted it between the 17th and 18th century. St. Vincent (V135), a Sea Island cotton, was adapted in India and released as “SUVIN” in 1974. Suvin is a fascinating story of how a wonder fiber, that had its origins thousands of miles away, came to India a century ago to capture the imagination of a nation. With 2.7 to 3.1 mic and 38 to 40 mm in length, it is the finest and longest staple cotton in the world, making it the only commercially available fiber, with spin ability of 300s Ne count and above. Suvin is truly the Jewel in the Indian Cotton Crown. Appachi has mastered the art of growing and ginning of unadulterated, contamination free and rupture free Suvin, for over 4 decades.
The Appachi Eco-logic Project is bringing together farmers of the Kabini region, encouraging them to grow traditional varieties of cotton and helping them to convert from genetically modified cotton to growing environmentally friendly Eco-Logic cotton, thereby eliminating harmful pesticides and insecticides helping to revrse the damage done to water resources and animal life in the region. The project also educates farmers in traditional and scientific methods of growing sustainable and high quality cotton consistently.
