Egyptian cotton by Pure Parima is the best bedding material you can have! Here are a few reasons why Egyptian cotton is the widely known as the most superior type of fabric:

    • Certified pure Egyptian cotton is only hand-picked in Egypt near the Nile River where it is grown in nutrient-dense soil. The Nile River Valley has the best conditions in the world to grow cotton.
    • Quality selection is of premium Giza that has extra-long staples. Extra-long staple cotton fibers create stronger yarn that doesn't pill.
    • Cotton is grown at the very fertile river bank of the Nile river with extra care and love.
    • Our signature collection, Yalda, features a sateen weave to provide a silky and luxurious texture.
    • Skilled artisans have handcrafted Egyptian cotton bedding products that provide an ultra-luxurious feel to your bed.
    • Egyptian Cotton holds dye better than other cotton.
    • Easy cleaning by use of washing machines, which requires no extra hand care while washing. If washed correctly, the texture will become softer and even more comfortable.
    • Available in all bed sizes.

Where It All Started

The history of Egyptian Cotton dates back to the 19th century. Mohammad Ali Pascia, the founder of modern Egypt, planted this cotton as a symbol to rebuild Egypt after the French troops, under Napoleon, invaded Egypt. Pascia was so impressed by regular cotton and the fabric it produced, that he had Brazilian cotton seeds imported. The environment of the rich Nile River suited the seeds so well that it gave birth to a new type of cotton that cannot be found anywhere else. Thus Egyptian Cotton was born, cotton desired by people all around the globe.

The Journey from Egypt to Our Bedrooms

In the east of the Nile delta, there is a very small area that has been devoted to growing Egyptian Cotton. The amount of Egyptian Cotton grown makes up 0.5% of the total cotton produced in Egypt annually. There is no technological method to harvest Egyptian cotton crops as they are all meticulously picked by hand. The pickers only pick the flocks that are mature to the right extent by carefully examining the crops. 

What Makes Giza the Best?

The exceptional features of Giza make this the best type of Egyptian cotton. No other type surpasses the quality and comfort that Giza provides. Here are the main differentiators between Giza and the others:

1. Extra-Long Fibers

The extra-long fibers of Giza Egyptian cotton can reach up to 36mm and they even have a uniformity index of 88.5%. This allows for fewer breaks in the cotton when spinning yarn leading to stronger, smoother yarn.

2. Fine Fibers

The fineness of the fibers is exquisite as it lies in the range of 3 to 3.2 micronaire, while the degree of brightness goes up to 74.8. This is the reason why Giza is the best type of Egyptian Cotton because of its fine fibers.

3. Stretching Resistance

Another factor that makes Giza the best type is its stretching resistance. The stretching resistance of Giza Egyptian Cotton can go up to 44.30 g/tex on average which is considered high and is a feature not found in other types of cotton.
