Weave

Weave

The main weave used for bed linen is plain weave :

• Canvas armor = 1 thread on, 1 under
• Satin tack = 1 thread on, 4 under
• The jacquard = the threads are crossed so as to make appear a drawing.


Depending on the armor, the appearance and properties of the fabric are different



Quality

A fabric's quality depends on its thickness and the number of threads per cm2 of fabric.

For example, percale must have a minimum of 80 threads/cm2, while plain, good-quality cotton has a thread count of 57cm/cm2.

The tighter the weave, the better the quality.



Percale

Percale

Our percale is composed of long fibres of combed cotton that intertwine better and lend a smoother, shinier and softer aspect to the fabric.

It also makes the fabric more resistant to frequent washing.

Our percale is treated with Easy Care for easier ironing.
