In the late nineteenth century, a plague forced a large number of farmers to abandon the cultivation of cotton, but Fermin Tangüis developed a new variety of cottonseed of thick long staple, easy to spin and dye, and with such hydrophilicity that led to a fabric of outstanding quality. The uniform long staple Tangϋis cotton outstands for its whiteness, strength and softness. This one of a kind cotton is highly absorbent and can retain 24 to 27 times its own weight. Clothes made from Tangüis cotton are breathable as it rapidly absorbs and releases perspiration.
