Cotton Basics: No, Cotton Necessities

Cotton Basics on Piedmont Ave in Oakland CAAdmittedly, we don’t know much about Cotton Basics to relate to you. But, we certainly want to learn more about the story behind this indie shop. So, consider us now on a mission to meet the owner–for several reasons. First, we love that Cotton Basics is a made in Oakland brand. Secondly, we are impressed that it has been around since the early 80s. And thirdly, we are so happy to know it is female owned!

Cotton Basics on Piedmont Ave in Oakland CABut most of all, we just want to know who is behind all this exceptional quality cotton assortment that includes t-shirts and other clothing. We want to thank her for giving the gift of Cotton Basics to Oakland. Though, we do have just one tiny suggestion: Change the name to Cotton Necessities because that is what this shop is all about.

Sure it’s hyperbole to say that cotton tees are a necessity of life. But, they certainly are a requirement for the wardrobe–which is almost the same thing. If you think that cotton basics are essential like we do, then go straight to Cotton Basics and stock up on your soft, comfy, cotton clothing.

Seriously, this place is for anyone who is super picky (pun definitely intended) about the cotton basics in their closet. There is nothing basic about their selection!
