And with so many of our clients/partners relying on us for top quality bedding, we understand the importance of our materials.

This fabric utilizes the traditional one-yarn-over and one-yarn-under weave, giving it its nice matte finish and cool, crisp feel, as opposed to sateen, which has a tighter weave that makes the sheets heavier and less breathable.
