Who are the Cotton Egypt Association?
PROTECTING EGYPTIAN COTTON™
Established in 2005, the Cotton Egypt Association (CEA) is passionate about keeping Egyptian Cotton™ pure.
Our goal is to protect the Egyptian Cotton™ name from the inferior quality materials that are entering the market. We want to give consumers the reassurance that Egyptian Cotton™ is solely that, 100% pure with no additional blend. To do this, we are committed to being transparent about the entire process. Traceability is key, so by understanding the genomic fingerprint of the cotton, we can conduct DNA tests to ensure that every bit of the fibre is genuine.

HELP TO KEEP IT PURE
To help us protect the purity of Egyptian Cotton™ we work closely with everyone involved in the supply chain, both local and international.
In order to use the Egyptian Cotton™ name and logo, a manufacturer must have received our accreditation. We are more than willing to guide manufacturers through the process and then further advise them on how to effectively promote their licensed products. Our oversight is crucial to ensuring that consumers receive only the finest, softest and most resilient cotton fibres. Together, we can protect the noble legacy of Egyptian Cotton™ for years to come.
