Thread Count

Thread count  as described here on the site refers to the amount of threads per square inch of the fabric. (The weft and the warp of the fabric). The higher the thread count the higher the quality and luxury feel to the fabric - this is reflected in the cost.

With regard to Egyptian cotton 180 percale: any fabric consisting of 180 threads or more per square inch is classified as percale.

Egyptian Cotton Sateen 300 and 800 thread count

The highest thread count Egyptian cotton we have available is the 1000 count. This range is ultra luxurious. Available in white and ivory. Beautifully soft, the 100% Egyptian cotton  sourced from Egypt in the region of the River Nile, renowned throughout the world as one of the finest due to its long staple fibres which yield to a soft, silky fabric - absorbent, durable whilst being lustrous to the touch, it really is the ultimate in bedroom style and sensuality.

This is available in various pastel shades:  White, Ivory, Cream, Duck Egg Blue, Pistache, Lavender and light Pink. Beautifully soft and durable. 100% Egyptian cotton sourced from Egypt in the region of the River Nile.

Washing Instructions

All the products are machine washable at 40 degrees.
Egyptian cotton sateen 300, 800 & 1000 count:  Machine washable at 40 degrees. Do not tumble dry.

Before placing the duvet covers in the wash, it is advisable to turn the duvet cover inside out. This protects the embroidery and design from piling. We recommend that you do not use bleach or harsh washing products and wash on a gentle to regular wash.


To avoid excessive creasing use a cool down period in tumble dryers and remove the bedlinen as soon as the cycle has completed, fold, lay flat and iron whilst fabric is still damp. Given this care your linen should remain beautiful. To iron the embroidered designs, either a)  turn duvet cover inside out and iron on the underside of the embroidery with the iron set at a warm setting or b) iron around the embroidery.


Should you see a design which you would like stitched on a) a different fabric or b) in a different colour of bedlinen / embroidery thread - for further enquiries:  Contact page

Personalisation / Exclusive Designs

We have a variety of beautiful fonts to choose from. Monogramming is available.


It is recommended that a top sheet (flat sheet) in addition to a bottom sheet accompanies the duvet cover.

*** We shall be adding a further range of quality linen in high thread counts to our range in the near future. Additional sizes of bedlinen will also be available: e.g., Emperor size. ***
