Egyptian Cotton

Over time, Egyptian Cotton has established itself as the “best” cotton in the world. Egyptian cotton has not gained such a reputation without reason. Egyptian cotton is the world’s finest cotton and the following characteristics are what sets Egyptian Cotton apart from other natural fibres:
  • The length of the fibre makes it possible to make the finest yarns without sacrificing the strength of the yarn.
  • The strength of the fibre makes fabrics more solid and more resistant to stress.
  • Its ability to absorb liquid gives Egyptian Cotton deeper, brighter and more resistant colours.
  • Its softness feels like nothing else in the world.
Egyptian cotton is hand picked which guarantees the highest levels of purity. As opposed to mechanical picking; hand picking puts no stress on the fibres, leaving the fibres straight and intact.
All of these factors have contributed to the international reputation of Egyptian Cotton as being softer, finer and longer lasting than any other cotton in the world.
Additionally, Egyptian Cotton has a long growing history and is much more environmentally sustainable than domestic cottons, which are non-native plants and require massive amounts of water to cultivate on a large scale.
