"Peruvian Pima cotton," Good writes, "is world renowned as a high quality fiber." Earlier this year, Photographer Joseph Pfeifer traveled to Lima, Peru, to visit the clothing factories that transform this revered fiber into finished fabric and garments.Good writes:

Most of the factories are vertical operations, meaning that they turn raw materials into finished products in one location; they also stay open 24 hours a day, though individual employees don't work longer than 10-hour shifts. Pfeifer's photographs offer a look at the impressive scale of these operations, as well as a window into the lives of people who create the products that many Americans buy.
