The organic cotton used in PuraKai clothes come from California. The story of Purakai is the story of capturing the spirit of two great cultures. The name PuraKai is derived from the Costa Rican phrase Pura Vida, and Kai, the Hawaiian word for ocean. Giving PuraKai the meaning of “Pure Ocean”.
As Noel (the father) states, “What we are doing is creating a 100% USA based supply chain for Ocean Friendly organic cotton clothing that goes from the seed all the way to the shirt. We grow the organic cotton in California, spin the cotton into yarn in North Carolina, then knit, cut, sew, and print the shirts in California. All along the supply chain we are creating much needed US manufacturing jobs. “
