100% Organic Peruvian Pima Cotton
Pima cotton is a species of cotton plant known to grow extra-long staples, or (ELS). This means that the plants normally grow about twice the length of ordinary cotton.
The longer staple fibers provide a row of benefits, resulting in a super soft and silky fabric with a beautiful luster.
Our organic Pima cotton is grown along the northern coast of Peru where the soil is rich and ideal temperatures enable the plants to soak up all of the moisture needed to provide the perfect source material for a clothing that both looks—and feels—luxurious.
Pima cotton is highly durable, and is much more resistant to tearing and pilling than ordinary cotton. The staple fibers retain colors much better, and don’t produce any lint. This means that fabrics and garments made of Pima cotton age more slowly, and last a lot longer, making it a far more sustainable choice when producing and consuming clothes.

In 2014, I moved from Gothenburg, Sweden to NYC after meeting my now husband and business partner Miguel on a bench. Little did I know that that chance encounter would lead to both the beginning of a new home and family, and a return of sorts to my previous life as a Scandinavian fashion designer. Previous to this I received formal art training and then attended fashion school which I left to work for Velour by Nostalgi where I started to work as the women’s wear designer at age 24. Having had the opportunity to jump so early into roles like fashion designer and production coordinator, I was able to early on gain a sense of my own vision and how it could intersect with my principles and the need of others. Granelito is a hard won journey to bringing art, love and strength to my world, community and self. Please join us as we grow and play with colors and design while taking on the important task of ethical and sustainable fashion for babies, kids and adults.
