Thanks to ideal growing conditions, extra-long staple length and hand harvesting, Peruvian pima cotton is the world's finest pima, prized for its exceptional softness and brilliant luster, as well as its durability. One touch is all it takes to show you just how luxurious cotton can be.
To grow exceptional cotton, you need exceptional growing conditions. Peruvian pima cotton grows lush along the northern coastal valleys of Peru. There, the rich soil soaks up just the right amount of moisture at near-perfect equatorial temperatures. The result is a cotton with a silky luster and an unbelievably soft hand. With any natural fiber, the longer and smoother the filament, the softer the hand. Because of its exceptionally long, 1-3/8" staple length (ordinary cotton fibers measure between 1/2" to 3/4"), Peruvian pima cotton is silky soft, extremely durable, and highly resistant to pilling.
HAND-PICKED COTTON IN THE NORTH OF PERU
Today, just about all cotton around the world is picked by machines. With almost only one exception: The Peruvian Handpicked Pima Cotton.
The Peruvian Pima Cotton used for Petidoux pajamas is still being picked by hand. This way the cotton plants are better protected, as is the environment in which it grows. What’s more, the handpicking does not break the cotton but protects it and makes it longer and softer.
LUXURIOUSLY SOFT PIMA COTTON
In addition to this exceptional fiber, the processing is also crucial in order to achieve “Premium Quality Pajamas”: from the spinning of the cotton through the processing of the yarns, each step of the production chain follows time-tested, exacting techniques that directly contribute to the exceptional texture of our finished, luxuriously soft pajamas.
Unlike other man-made fibers, our pima cotton does not cause allergies, making it an excellent choice for people with skin sensitivities. Furthermore, it is extremely soft and only gets softer, wash after wash, to make for a perfect hand-me-down item.
The finest attention to detail can be observed throughout the collections, with perfectly smooth stitching and soft wrists cuffs, to the beautifully matching color threads and tag-less garments, which make Petidoux pajamas the perfect companions to a great night’s sleep.
Petidoux promises quality and luxury through the highest quality cotton, sourced and designed with the utmost attention to detail, vertical-integrated processes and a tradition of timeless & classic style.
Our products embody the softness and elegance that every child deserves.

"What is the purpose of the children’s sleepwear flammability standards? To protect children from burns, these rules require that children’s sleepwear must be flame resistant and self- extinguish if a flame from a candle, match, lighter or a similar item causes it to catch fire. The rules cover all children’s sleepwear above size 9 months and up to size 14 and require that (1) the fabric and garments must pass certain flammability tests; or (2) be "tight fitting" as defined by specified dimensions."
