ZigZagZurich Introducing Rugs!

"Sierra Morena" is a natural and historical region in Andalusia, Spain, north of Seville. The average elevation is 1,200 metres above sea level. Where as you can find plantations of olive trees, grapes, citrus and other fruit on the lower levels, the highland is much more arid and hills are covered with snow in the winter leaving its habitants focusing more on indoor labor. 

We collaborate and support a small handweaving studio by producing "BALADE", a colorful and joyful round carpet using jute and braided fabric which are left overs from the nearby textile mills. Extremely sturdy "BALADE" will create a moment of joy in any interiors.  

Handwoven in the highlands of Spain;

Diameter 160cm;

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.
