Percale

The fabric is made of 100% long-staple cotton. The secret of the popularity of percale is in the natural properties of cotton and its weaving. Threads are not twisted together, on the contrary - they lie evenly. That is why this material is dense, yet smooth and gentle.

If both fabrics are 100% cotton, then what's the difference?

What is the fabric weaving, and how does it affect your sensations?
Both materials are 100% cotton, though there is a big difference in their texture.

Percale

The process design of percale is the most standard: one main thread is taken and intertwined with one extra. Thus, fabric looks the same both externally and internally. Very high density of fabric weave threads certifies the high quality of our bed linen. Our percale has 200 threads per 1 cm2.

Sateen

In the manufacture of sateen, strongly twisted cotton threads are used. It is this technique which gives the fabric a smooth and gentle shine. The scheme consists of three main threads woven with one extra. Sateen is denser fabric and heavier in weight, while much smoother and softer than percale. We use sateen with an increased index of thread weave density: more than 300 threads per 1 cm2.
