Classic Cotton

You know it, you love it, the original obsession that started it all is just as good as it was in 1982. Loved for its natural properties that can’t be replicated (lightweight, breathable, soft, washable), our colorful heritage cotton has come to stand for so much more. Self-expression. Tenacity. Optimism. A common thread that connects a community. It's what makes us, us.

Forever Original EST 1982
“At the very beginning, we chose cotton because it was familiar and comfortable and washable. Almost instantly it was embraced by women everywhere. There was nothing out there like it and even today colorful cotton is quintessentially ours.”
The Fabric of Our Lives® The cotton flower’s fluffy interior is what’s spun into the soft fabric we all know and love.  Lightweight Often Machine Washable Cotton Inc.

In Print 

Of course it was our colorful original prints that made our cotton famous. Cotton was the perfect canvas for our bright bouquets and punchy paisleys. When it came to our prints, the brighter the better. Color quickly became part of our design signature as did our hand-drawn approach that gives each print a perfectly imperfect character all its own.

New & Next

Four decades later, classic cotton still holds our hearts. We’ve made very few changes to it — or our signature quilting — over the years. Cotton is the core collection we design for, introducing fresh new patterns and silhouettes each season.
