Cotton is the most popular natural fiber due to its advantages over other fabrics which includes breathability, comfort and durability. This plant has existed since ancient, almost even prehistoric times although no one really knows how long cotton has been used for textile production. Like most plants, cotton comes from a large family of different types. There is cotton that comes from America, Africa, Asia and cotton that comes from the West Indies. Hybrid types of cotton exist as well. The different 'feels' of cotton exist because of the length of the cotton fibers; the longer the fibers are the softer and better the cotton is.

Why the majority of our fabrics are made with Egyptian Cotton?

Most people know that Egyptian cotton is synonymous of quality and is widely regarded as the best form of cotton fiber in the world. Egyptian cotton comes from where its name suggests, Egypt. The humid conditions and rich soil in this country along the Nile River Valley create the perfect conditions to grow long cotton fibers (also known as staples).
Fabrics made with this quality are softer, finer and last longer than any other cotton in the world. Egyptian cotton’s winning characteristics are due to its long staple. Quite simply, the long fibers make it possible to produce finer, yet stronger yarn which can be woven into any number of thread counts, and which can be finished with a superior handle and drape. It is more breathable and becomes softer over time with use. Another property of Egyptian cotton that makes it high quality is its ability to absorb liquid. This ability allows it soak in dyes that give the final product very vibrant color that lasts longer than some other cotton products.
An additional benefit of Egyptian cotton is that it is an environmentally-friendly textile. It is picked by hand, a process which is very gentle on the plant fibers as well as the low use of pesticides.

The Giza Option

GIZA is one of the highest qualities of all the varieties of Egyptian cottons. GIZA is our Egyptian cotton of choice for our top fabrics.




Wool fabric is among the few natural fabrics used to produce many of today's clothing and domestic items. Wool is comprised of the natural wool fibers grown on sheep, although fibers from other animals such as llamas or alpacas contain similar properties and can legally be referred to as wool.




Linen is a natural fiber, made from the stalk of a flax plant at it was the first fiber used to weave fabric and dates back over 8,000 years. Now, because of the laborious time it takes to produce linen yarn, and the manual processes that have to be undertaken, linen has become a higher priced commodity, and considered among many to be a ‘luxury’ fabric.
It softens the more it is used and washed, is extremely durable and lasts decades when cared for correctly. Vintage linen is very desirable, it’s soft and the feeling is very hard to replicate by any mechanical process. It´s environmentally friendly – less water and chemicals to cultivate.
The temperatures and cooler climates are ideal for the cultivation and controlled decomposition of the woody plant.




The Elastane fibre, represent a further high point in the development of man-made fibres. Invented in 1937 in Germany, elastane has properties not found in nature, the most important being an extraordinary elasticity. Elastane is used in all areas where a high degree of permanent elasticity is required, as, for example, in sportswear, swimwear, corsetry, and in woven and knitted fabrics. When stretched, it always reverts to its original form. Elastane thus is a prerequisite for fashionable or functional apparel which is intended to cling to the body, while at the same time remaining comfortable.
Elastane fibres can be stretched from four to seven times their length, reverting to their original length when the tension is relaxed. Elastane has the highest stretch tension of all textile raw materials.
