Cottonopolis, a nickname of the Northern British City and home of Progress HQ, Manchester during the 19th Century. During this period, Manchester was a Metropolis at the centre of the World's cotton trade. At the height of the British Empire, factories in the North West of England supplied 90% of the World's cotton.
Each weave is Navy blue with teal trim, a competition fit but not IBJJF competition legal.
