What makes a good fabric?

The quest for a good fabric starts by selecting the right raw materials. The place of origin where the natural fibres are grown, is relatively irrelevant. The determining factors include soil, climate and breeding conditions amongst several other things. The expert knowledge of the weavers ensures they select the right conditions of the natural fibres and guarantees the magic of processing them info fabrics of exceptional performance.High-end fabrics consist of long staple or even extra-long staple fibres.

When selecting bed linens, you might consider the thread count as well. This is the amount of threads per square inch and is worked out by counting the lengthwise (warp) threads and the width-wise (weft) threads.To create a higher thread count multiple yarns are twisted around one another and become one fine and strong ply thread. These ply threads are tightly woven and create strong and durable fabrics. A high tread count makes the fabric feel softer and look more luxurious.

Depending on the comfort you seek, you can choose sateen woven of percale woven long staple cotton.
Sateen is a type of weaving where the warp and weft yarns are spread. The weft yarns lie over multiple warp yarns. It is naturally wrinkle-resistant, wraps around the body and gives a silky feel and a luxurious sheen.
Percale is a traditional one-yarn-over and one-yarn-under weaving. Contrary to the sheen of sateen, percale is characterised by the matt finish and the crispy cool feel that improves with every wash.
