Cotton - It’s not surprising that cotton is the most important non-food commodity in the world. Hairs from the tropical cotton plant are spun into yarn, then cloth. It’s low maintenance, versatile and affordable.
Cotton Percale - This is a variation on the regular cotton where the cotton yarn is given a combed treatment. This gives the bed linen a lovely smooth finish and with a thread count of over 180, it has a high quality feel about it.
Linen - Linen is made from yarn made out of fibres from the flax plant. It is a heavier, stronger fibre than cotton, creating a fabric that is smoother and with a very unique drape. It is an excellent conductor of heat and does not retain any moisture - these qualities make linen both snug and really comfortable to sleep in.
Cotton & Linen - Linen is a luxury yarn.To keep bed linen affordable, a combination of linen and cotton brings the qualities of both yarns together.
Cotton Sateen - This is a weaving technique that is slightly more expensive to weaving classic cotton cloth. This different process produces a bed linen that is incredibly soft to handle and has a fabulous sheen.
Chambray - Often referred to as ‘yarn dye’, chambray is made up of a warp and weft thread of different colours. This weaving technique gives a smart, sophisticated look to plain cotton bed linen.
Silk - Originating from China, silk fabric is made from the continuous fibre the silk caterpillar makes to cocoon itself during its transformation into a moth. In the manufacturing process, fibres from several cocoons are twisted together to make a yarn of suitable thickness for weaving. The complicated process it goes through commands a high price tag, but its superb dyeing qualities make it a true luxury fabric that needs care and attention to keep it looking good.
Our designs are based on age-old techniques for creating pattern and colour. Whilst machines now create embroidery effects, some of our designs are created on a sewing machine by one of our dedicated embroiderers. Once the embroidery is complete, the fabric is cut to size, so we still manage to make it a very individual process.
