Pitusa, meaning “funny little girl” in Spanish, started out of our CEO and founder, Clara Lago’s bedroom in 2010. Eight years later, we have a warehouse and flagship in Miami and another warehouse in Peru, which is where this all began; from the finest Peruvian Pima cotton.

Why Peruvian Pima?
Cotton is one of the most prized fabrics in the world. Much like the food we ingest, coffee or wine; the quality of cotton varies tremendously. Cotton is naturally comfy, long-lasting and absorbent, but Peruvian Pima cotton is the world’s finest; cherished for its incomparable softness, resilience, and luster!

Made in Peru with Love
Our products are sustainably and ethically produced in Lima, Peru – manufactured under safe and fair trade working conditions in factories run by strong and hard-working women! Pima cotton grows lush along the northern coastal valleys of Peru and is harvested entirely by hand, which is better for the environment and the cotton itself.
