Made in Turkey
Cotorra's journey started while driving through the Aegean region of Turkey, where you could find the most select cotton for decades. There, they encountered small manufacturers and the ateliers of local artisans of beautiful hand-woven fabrics.
Working with these rare fabrics and middle eastern patterns they became passionate about the idea of combining them with exceptional craftsmanship and their own bespoke designs, eventually creating a unique and sustainable fashion concept.
By choosing their production sites personally to guarantee a consistent high standard of working conditions they offer an ethical mindset through their production and packaging where they follow a fair and transparent price policy towards their customers, artisans and manufacturers. .
All of their authentic Turkish fabrics are still made in their traditional way - crafted from natural fibres and flat woven, resulting in an extremely absorbent and soft texture to guarantee the most distinguished experience and long-lasting life. Using premium cotton with extra-long fibres results in a stronger and smoother cotton thread. This characteristic makes the fabrics become even softer and more absorbent with successive use and washing.
