Luxury hotel quality Egyptian cotton bed linen for your home

Most people describe spending a night in luxury hotel beds as the ultimate sleeping experience. A bed so comfortable and bed linen so heavenly that you don't want to leave it. Egyptian cotton is considered one of the highest quality and most luxurious raw materials for textiles in the world. That is why it is a popular choice for bed linen in five-star hotels. With bed linen from DOUXE, you can also enjoy this luxurious hotel quality at home. Egyptian cotton is perceived as soft and durable. Bed linen from DOUXE is made with 100% certified Egyptian cotton.

What is Egyptian cotton?

Egyptian cotton distinguishes itself from other types of cotton because it feels wonderfully soft and lasts a long time. Egyptian cotton comes from the Gossypium Barbaden species and has the characteristic of having one of the longest natural threads in the world. These long threads create a flexible and unbroken yarn Egyptian cotton is therefore extra strong, very durable and feels very soft.

What is the secret of Egyptian cotton?

The unique climate: the climate, the fibre and the production process ensure the unique softness and superior quality of Egyptian cotton. As the name suggests, Egyptian cotton comes from... Egypt! The fibres used for Egyptian cotton can only grow in a specific climate. The Nile Delta, with its moist, rich soil, many hours of sunshine and cool nights offers the perfect environment for this. This enormously fertile area provides the cotton plants with ideal growing conditions and a constant supply of nutrients. As a result, the fibres in the plants grow faster and especially longer.

The long fibres: this extra long fibre is what distinguishes Egyptian cotton from regular cotton. This (extra) long fibre is in fact a super strong and incredibly soft fibre. The longer the fibre grows, the thinner and smoother it becomes. Various steps in the production process then provide the ideal conditions for a soft and pure top-quality end product. Egyptian cotton is picked by hand, which means that the cotton fibres are selected with great care and are less likely to break. This ultimately has a positive effect on the quality of the cotton. The cotton fibres are then combed, so that loose fibres and particles are removed. After that the cotton is spun into yarn without any impurities. A very important process. Cotton that is not properly spun contains impurities that remain visible in the fabric of the end product. Over time, these impurities compromise the quality of the material and cause the fabric to pill. The quality of the fabric also depends to a large extent on the quantity of threads used.

The refined production process: Egyptian cotton does not have a "seal of approval" like champagne. There is therefore widespread abuse by producers who label their cotton as Egyptian cotton but do not offer the quality and advantages of pure Egyptian cotton. The Egyptian Cotton Association guarantees the authenticity of Egyptian cotton by verifying all products claiming the label Egyptian cotton with a 'DNA certification process'. It goes without saying that all Egyptian cotton products from DOUXE are 100% DNA certified and can therefore bear the Egyptian Cotton™ trademark.

Why Egyptian cotton?

For many centuries, Egyptian cotton has been known as the best cotton in the world. The soft and strong quality of Egyptian cotton bedding can be felt immediately and is like no other. The length of the fibre of Egyptian cotton makes it possible to make the finest yarns without sacrificing the strength of the yarn. This makes the fabric firmer and your bedding will last longer. Bed linen made of Egyptian cotton contributes to a comfortable night's sleep and creates a luxurious look in the bedroom.

It is the only cotton that is guaranteed to have been hand-picked, so the cotton stays stronger for longer, no matter how many times you wash it.

Weaving techniques: Percal and Satin

Egyptian cotton can be processed in different ways, two popular weaving techniques are satin and percal. Choose the lovely fresh and crisp feeling of percal or the cosy, warm and silky feeling of satin. The duvet sets of DOUXE Egyptian cotton are available in both variants.

Percal Egyptian cotton

Percal has a 'simple' weave. It is airy, it breathes and it absorbs moisture. Percal feels fresh and cooling and has a more casual look due to its matte finish. The quality of percal from DOUXE gets better with every wash. Advantages of percal are:

  • The real 'crispy sheets' hotel feeling;
  • The breathability (cooling effect);
  • The casual/matt look.

Satin Egyptian Cotton

Satin has a silky finish, making it feel super soft. The weave of satin is one thread at the top and three at the bottom. This makes the fabric tighter, making it feel a little heavier and a little warmer than percal. Satin linen is exceptionally soft and has a beautiful sheen. Advantages of satin are:

  • The fabric feels silky soft;
  • It is softer, heavier and warmer;
  • The luxurious, shiny silk look;
  • Because of its supple property, the fabric will wrinkle less after washing.

The quality of Egyptian cotton

The thread count (TC) of duvet covers is a good indicator of quality. As a rule, the more threads, the better the quality; the fabric feels softer and lasts longer.

Thread Count (TC)

The quality of Egyptian cotton fabrics depends to a certain extent on the quantity of horizontal and vertical threads used per square inch (1 inch = 2.54 cm), the so-called 'Thread Count', abbreviated to TC. The higher the TC, the finer the thread and the denser the fabric. This improves the quality of the fabric and also gives a softer, more luxurious feel. Woven Egyptian cotton, regardless of the height of the TC, will always be softer and smoother than the average duvet cover.
