Egyptian cotton bedding and why you just have to sleep in it

What is so special about Egyptian cotton?

Egyptian cotton is a very high quality fiber with extra long staple length. The staple length is the fiber length of a yarn. Egyptian cotton is grown mainly in the Nile Delta, where the warm, dry climate is ideal for growing cotton.

Our special vintage luxury bedding collection celebrates traditional weaving and high quality manufacturing, everything is made and confectioned in Italy. The fabrics are woven in our weaving mill in Italy, in small quantities, from the finest Egyptian cotton. They are first colored in a special process to give them their unique intensity. The woven fabric is then washed in old conventional water tubs hot and then dried. The fabrics are so softer and get a nice and textured surface, with a unique grip. Some call it antique, others 'shabby chic', for us it is exclusively yarn-dyed and handcrafted Italian luxury bedding. 

Why Egyptian cotton is the best to sleep in.

In general, Egyptian cotton is the preferred fiber. It breathes, resulting in cool comfort under warm and to warmth in cold conditions. Cotton washes easily and well also Egyptian Cotton is skin-friendly and anti-allergic. Unlike synthetic fabric, Egyptian cotton is a natural product and contains no chemicals. The entire plant can be completely recycled from the production of yarns and fabrics to the production of cooking oils and plastics. The long, luxurious fibers of Egyptian cotton are stronger than other fibers and are easier to spin into threads. The uniform length of the threads make them easy to weave into a stable, shimmering fabric. Although it enjoys a good reputation worldwide and is grown internationally, Egyptian cotton accounts for only 0.5% of global cotton production. This will keep her luxury status. The high-quality fibers are particularly soft, stable and resilient.

Sleep better this summer: choose a natural bedding

We spend about one-third of our life sleeping. For this reason, the environment we sleep in has a big importance and impact on our health. The best bedding to sleep in – especially during summer – is made of natural fibers such as linen and cotton. Natural materials are fantastic body temperature regulators, keeping cool in the summer and warm in the winter, allowing comfortable sleep and keeping you feeling fresher during the summer nights as they encourage ventilation.

LINEN

Natural linen is the summer trend material of the moment. With its open texture, it’s perfect for warmer weather as extremely light. Perfect for people who overheat easily because it is heat-regulating. Linen is a good choice for allergy suffers as well, because of its hypoallergenic and antistatic properties.

Take a look at our “Check linen” bedding and the smaller version “Mini Check linen”, two wonderful mid weight yarn dyed beddings.

Another beautiful option for your bedroom is the “Melange linen”, also yarn dyed, whom yarns’ mix creates a  mélange coloring effect due to the mix of the blue and white yarns. 

The heaviest, and most special linen of our range of linens, is the “Panama linen” available in different colors. And remember: the more it is used, the softer it gets and the stronger it becomes!

EGYPTIAN COTTON

The Egyptian cotton is well-known for being the best cotton in the world. Its softness, long fibers and strength make it extremely durable. Our Egyptian cotton bedding are yarn dyed. That makes the color very intense compared to piece-dyed fabrics (colored only after the fabric has been woven).

Our Made in Italy production, means a lot of care and high quality products. After weaving the fabric, we wash it in hot bath and leave to dry. This special process makes the bedding softer and creates a beautiful vintage effect.
