Long staple Egyptian cotton is a product that every textile company prides itself on. In Egypt, we do so even more, with our homeland being home to this extraordinary fabric, which enjoys superb strength and miraculously gets softer with time.

Egyptian cotton is “extra long staple” mostly made from a cotton plant called Gossypiumbarbadense. Believed to be hybridized with Peruvian cotton, the plant’s fiber length is around 1 3/8 inches. Cotton was introduced to Egypt in the nineteenth century by Egypt’s ruler then Mohammed Ali Pasha.

Egyptian cotton is more breathable and becomes softer over time with use. Thanks to its high thread count, it is lighter in weight and extremely durable, compared to other cottons.
