On the banks of the Nile, cotton is hand-picked to preserve its purity. This artisanal harvest does not damage the fibres. And it is because of these long, flat, preserved fibres that Egyptian cotton has earned its reputation as the best cotton in the world.
For centuries, cotton from the banks of the Nile has been considered the most famous of Egypt's products and has gained international recognition as the best cotton in the world. Its softness, resistance and permeability make this natural fibre the most sumptuous product for weaving sheets and household linen.
Here is what distinguishes Egyptian cotton from other natural fibres:
Fibre length: Egypt produces the world's longest cotton fibres (more than 3 cm), which makes it possible to obtain fine yarns without compromising on strength.
Fineness: the longer a fibre is, the finer it becomes. This ensures that Egyptian cotton has exceptional permeability.
Robustness: The strength of this fibre strengthens the fabric and makes it more durable over time in the face of attacks that can occur during washing, rinsing and ironing.
Softness: Finally, its softness and the possibility of sanitising it make it ideal for the manufacture of baby clothes.
In summary: Fibres and fabrics woven in Egyptian cotton are softer, finer and last longer than any other cotton in the world.
