Lavez votre Polo Tricot Coton Supima® en machine à 30° sur l’envers. Préférez un essorage léger (maximum 400 t/min). Grâce à sa fibre fine et longue, votre Polo Tricot Coton Supima® s'adoucira au fil des lavages.
Pas de sèche-linge, ni de repassage. Avec son point gaufré votre Polo Tricot se froisse très peu.
Pour éviter de le déformer, laissez-le sécher à plat.
The historical savoir-faire of Spanish knitting
Did you know that? Spain is the European cradle of knitting. And our workshop, founded in 1980, has built its expertise on this heritage. The common thread is to preserve the authenticity of traditional knitting while modernising its technique. Our Polo Tricot was born from the know-how of several hands. Augustìn, the founder, works with his daughter Alicia. A sign of this exemplary quality is that our Tricot Polo is fully-fashioned: assembled without any scissors. The individual parts are knitted directly onto the piece. This is more elegant, solid and comfortable.
The "Waffle" stitch
"Waffle is the name of our knitting stitch. The recipe? 3 rows of knitwear right side up then 3 rows of knitwear reverse side up.
Result: a beautiful texture that changes from traditional polo shirts. It adds relief to the piece. And makes it breathable. It won't stick to your skin! Even in 30°C weather this summer.
The quality of the made in USA cotton
Do you remember the quality of Levi's jeans from the 80s? We do. The American brand achieved this durability through the quality of its cotton. Like them, we wanted to find cotton that met all our criteria: soft, strong and produced in good conditions. This material is Supima® cotton. It is the best possible cotton variety. Supima® cotton is a fibre made from American Pima cotton. This type of cotton is 35% longer than the others. Only 1% of Pima cotton production is labelled Supima®. A guarantee of exceptional quality.
The finishing makes the difference
The collar. Well-proportioned, neither too short nor too wide, it has been entirely knitted in Milano stitch. This is a knitting technique that gives our collar the right balance between elasticity and density. Our collar is light, supple, but does not move. It never does.
The buttons. We chose Corozo buttons. Corozo is a small nut from South America. It is very strong, 100% natural and very beautiful.
A contemporary fit
What's the secret to a great fit on a knit polo? It's the ribbing. Without it, it is impossible to get a polo shirt that goes with the figure without ever yawning. And it's the secret of durability of knitwear that lasts over time.
So we paid close attention to the sleeves and the waist. Our ribbed cuffs are comfortable without being tight and uncomfortable. They reinforce the knit and guarantee that our polo shirt will age very well.
