Duties & Taxes

Do I have to pay duties & taxes on my order?

Our parcels are sent from our Hong Kong warehouse. Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. You may be charged for handling fees and taxes as your order passes through customs. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.

It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting. Grana is not responsible for any customs and import duty charges.

peruvian pima cotton

through the eyes of Patrick Kolts

Peru will always be a special place for Grana. This is where it all began for us, with the best pima cotton, a small batch of t-shirts and a hunch that something special was possible. So, it’s pretty exciting to see what our friend Patrick Kolts(@patrickkolts) discovered in Lima when he hit the ground running, ready to explore the always energetic and colourful Peruvian capital, our pima cotton mill and factory.

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Lima is a vibrant city and home to some real cultural and culinary treasures. Multi-coloured bolts of fabric draw you into charming market stalls, beautiful architecture greets you at every turn, colourful arches and secret courtyards appear as if from nowhere. And don’t get us started on the food. But for now, it’s cotton that we’re here to see. A visit to our pima cotton mill offers a rare chance to observe the production and manufacture process end to end.

Pima cotton fibres are twice the length of standard cotton fibres, which means the end product is incredibly durable and exceptionally soft. Handpicked cotton is spun into yarn following traditional principles but using state-of-the-art machinery. Our team in Lima draw on decades of experience and knowledge when it comes to the knitting process, to ensure your t-shirt arrives with just the right amount of stretch.

We use eco-friendly dyes to get the freshest shades for our designs, and each garment is hand cut and pieced together by an experienced team in our factory. The sisters who run this factory as a family business, prioritise not only the quality of the end product, but also the safety and happiness of their employees. It’s evident in both the fabric and the team that the sisters’ hands-on approach is the way to go. And the results? Well, we think they speak for themselves.
