We are proud to supply 100% authentic Egyptian cotton linens. Superior to most other fibers because of its extra-long staple, Egyptian cotton is able to be woven more finely without sacrificing its strength. This creates a softer, more durable fabric that is resistant to pilling.
We only make our Egyptian cotton sheets from single-ply threads, meaning we use the long-staple Mother Nature created to weave luxurious sheets. The long-staple is most predominantly found in cotton actually grown in Egypt.
However, because of the extra cost and effort of obtaining Egyptian cotton, many manufacturers will twist two pieces of cotton together to mimic the long-staple. The quality simply isn’t the same, and these sheets tend to unravel quickly, which is why we only use single-ply threads for weaving. After our sheets are woven, the finished linen is then mercerized- a process used to strengthen the fibers, hold the color more effectively, and give a more lustrous appearance and softer hand.
