Origins


  • Egyptian Cotton™ is a top-quality long-staple fiber that is grown in Egypt. It is grown in the perfect climate and nutritious soil of the Nile Delta, Egyptian Cotton™ is also able to grow to an extra-long length. With greater length comes improved durability and an unparalleled softness. 
  • Although the Egyptian Cotton™ plant derives from Egypt, it is also grown in other countries where the right conditions can be found. The long luxe fibers of Egyptian Cotton™ are stronger than other varieties and more easily spun into thread. 
  • The thread’s continuous length means it is easily woven into strong, lustrous fabric. Despite its international production and reputation, Egyptian Cotton™ still only accounts for 0.5% of the world’s cotton output, which helps to retain its luxury status.

Properties and quality

  

  • Egyptian Cotton™ is hand-picked while other countries, farmers use machines to cut and process their cotton. This puts unnecessary stress on the fibers and can cause them to tear. Hand-picking also helps to keep the cotton clean, reducing the need for manufacturers to use abrasive and weakening chemicals to whiten the cotton. 
  • Egyptian Cotton™ is made from a high-quality long staple fiber which means it is extremely Soft, Strong, Absorbent and Resistant to stress
  • It is also naturally resistant to pilling and will soften with age, so with the right type of care, Egyptian Cotton™ can last for years (2-5 years depends on how you wash and dry it). 
  • Egyptian Cotton™ is extremely soft to touch. Egyptian Cotton™ products can typically be washed at 40°C. They can be ironed on a high heat and tumble dried on a low heat. (For best results, refer to the care instructions on your Egyptian cotton product.)
