Made out of 100% Egyptian cotton. The fabric draws its strength the history, wealth, fertile lands of the Aegean Region . The carefully created shirts, from yarn to fabric and sewing, are the products of this inspiration. We wanted to make luxury clothing accessible with the original, high quality shirts and hundreds of fabric designs in our collection. The creative design centres in Italy and Turkey, we collate Italy's refined classicism and richness of Turkish Mediterranean style in a unique way.
Our mission is to make a difference for you by using original, pure cotton fabrics as well as creative blended fabrics such as wool, silk and linen in our shirts. We never use polyester fabric in our shirts. Naturalness is always a priority for us. At Controversial we only procure from Giza cotton, one of the best cotton varieties grown in Egypt's fertile and fertile Nile Delta. The seeds of these cotton are brought to Anatolia by Kavalal? Mehmet Pasha in the 19th century. We produce our shirts with the original Egyptian Giza, one of the most perfect cotton types offered by nature, and carefully selected Aegean cotton.
Our shirts with a silky touch, especially unique to the Aegean and woven with Meander 71, Europe's longest fibre cotton, are the most valuable pieces of our collection. Although we take great care in the material that we source for all our products, we ensure it is perfectly complemented with our bespoke tailoring. We stitch our products only on order bases ensuring that the garments received is in the best shape possible. We also have an extensive quality control process where we strive for the garments to be in top quality hoping that it can last for a decade.
