Debunking the Myth of Egyptian Cotton Sheets

When it comes to ensuring a good night's sleep, bedsheets should be one of the most important things – after all you are going to spend one-third of life on it.

What is Egyptian Cotton Bedsheet?

Egyptian cotton is a generic descriptor meaning any cotton grown in Egypt can technically qualify as an "Egyptian Cotton." Granted back in the days climate in Egypt provided better conditions for cotton to grow. Unfortunately, retailer and manufacturer took advantage of the situation and stretched the definition of the “Egyptian cotton” to include – blended cotton, cotton grown in similar condition as Egypt’s and any quality of cotton (mid-staple or short-staple) grown in Egypt.

These loosely defined label has made poor quality cotton infiltration throughout the world market.

Also, most Egyptian cotton bed sheets are wrinkle-prone and may take several washes before becoming soft.

A better alternative – 100% Organic Cotton Sheets

Breathable - Organic cotton sheets are breathable, which means better air circulation, so it doesn’t get too hot or too cold.

Ultra-Soft – The sheets have luxurious touch and super soft feel. The best part is sheets gets softer with every wash and it ages well and are perfect for year around use.

Skin Friendly - The natural colors used in organic bed sheets do not contain harmful chemicals. Organic cotton sheets are a great choice if you have sensitive skin.
