      Having first-hand experience with Breast Cancer we wanted a meaningful way to contribute to a cause that affects millions of women worldwide. By allocating 50% of sale proceeds from selected bed linen collections to breast cancer research we enable you to make a positive impact through your purchase.  This initiative provides an opportunity to support breast cancer research and awareness efforts while shopping for essential items for your bedroom.

      At DEIA Living social and corporate impact is extremely important to us so we want to give back to the community that has supported us over the years.  By channelling funds towards research, we´re making a small contribution to advancements in treatment, prevention, and the most important support services for individuals affected by breast cancer.  Ultimately the end game is to work towards a future where this disease is eradicated once and for all.

      Which collections are included in DEIA Living Breast Cancer Initiative?

      We have included two of our most popular designs and colours, these being Formentera in Ash Grey and Elba in Platinum.

      Our Formentera Collection is our boldest designs.  Coming in a 280 thread count Egyptian cotton sateen with an ash grey double appliqué border.  The subtle yet bold detailing has been a popular as boating bedding as well as for adults bedrooms, young children and teenager rooms. 

      The 280 thread count sateen has the soft feel of a true sateen, the durability of a percale and a light sheen resulting in it often being mistaken for a higher thread count.  As expected our products are thoroughly quality tested. The material doesn't pill or shrink and the appliqué detailing is colour fast.

      By comparison our Elba Collection is one of our more styled designs ready for a beach house, town house or inner city apartment.  Crafted from premium quality 400 thread count long fibre cotton this range has a smooth and supple feel against the skin promising a deep sleep all year round.

      Part of Elba´s allure is the sophisticated triple cord trim which adorns the products. The platinum cream colour of this detailing is inspired by the colour of the soft sands of Majorca. It´s neutral tone allows you to personalise your space and coordinate with your decor effortlessly.  Likewise this stylish embellishment brings a touch of refinement and sophistication to your bed linen elevating its aesthetic appeal.

      These Breast Cancer Collections comes in Sheet Sets, Quilt Covers and a range of pillowcase sizes from Single to Super King size.  Each sheet set includes a fitted and flat sheet along with a standard pillowcase set of two.  Besides the fitted sheet the products are crafted with their corresponding trim for a tailored look.

      Also of importance is the ease of care for these bedding collections.  Despite their luxurious appearance and high thread counts they are designed with practicality in mind.  Machine washable at 40 degrees with line drying will maintain the pristine condition ensuring long-lasting enjoyment.  

      Why Choose DEIA Living?

      From the very beginning DEIA Living's aim was to provide Australians with beautiful European made bed linen at attainable prices.  We were tired of paying top dollar for subpar Chinese or Indian made bedding claiming to be "the best".  As a result we´ve worked exhaustively so the end quality is not compromised.  We believe everyone is entitled to a great night’s sleep and the best bedding to achieve this is European made, and cotton.

      The fact our sheet sets are sustainably made in Portugal contributes not only to an eco-consciousness yet also a smoother and softer textured fabric.  We do not believe in the one-use culture of today. Our products are made to last and add value to your linen closet.  Our designs are intentionally classic so you can mix and match collections easily if you so desire.  And then of course, we will be donating 50% of the sale proceeds from these collections to breast cancer research.

      The short answer is YES! Cotton Bed Sheets are extremely hypoallergenic.

      Cotton is one of the most common natural fibres for hypoallergenic sheets as it's it's soft, breathable and wicks moisture from your body. Cotton has natural anti-microbial properties meaning dust mites won´t stick around in your bed.

      Our number one recommendation if looking for hypoallergenic cotton bedding is avoid any cottton and synthetic blends. Stick to 100% Egyptian cotton bed linen or long fibre cotton bedding.

      The choice between a fitted or flat sheet as a bottom sheet very much depends on personal preference and the practical considerations for your cotton bed sheet closet.

      In our opinion a well designed fitted sheet offers convenience and practically. It´s imperative the fitted sheet has elastic that runs around the whole perimeter of the sheet and has a little extra depth so it sits snug on the mattress without any movement during the night. There's nothing worse than being woken mid sleep directly on a synthetic mattress all because your bottom sheet shifted! A fitted sheet also provides a neat and tidy appearance minimising wrinkles and bunching which is convenient, especially for those amongst us who aren´t big fans of ironing.

      A flat sheet as a bottom sheet on the other hand can be a practical solution as it has a double purpose as a bottom and top sheet. Likewise they allow for more customisation in bed-making styles and, in some cases can be used across several bed sizes. For example, a bigger flat sheet can be used on a smaller mattress as well as its intended sized mattress. If you know how to tightly fold your flat sheet under your mattress so it doesn´t shift then maybe your preference will be a flat sheet.

      Yes you certainly can. If you would like to check the quality of our material we are more than happy to send you a pack of swatches containing the material from each of our cotton bed sheet collections. Please complete our sample request form here.

      This is a common question and one that is very personal. Several factors influence whether a flat sheet is necessary with your quilt cover. Firstly, how much you move at night? It doesn´t matter how soft and comfortable your cotton bed sheets might be, there are some people who move a whole lot during their sleep and get wrapped up and therefore woken by too many layers of sheets. If this is you, and your flat sheet always ends kicked off the bottom of the bed we would suggest simply using a quilt cover.

      On the other hand, if you don´t move much during the night a plus of using a flat sheet is you can save yourself some linen loads as you won´t need to wash your quilt cover as regularly.

      Other factors to consider are if you're a hot sleeper and perspire at night? If so, less layers are better. Not only could the extra flat sheet annoy you however it's likely both quilt cover and flat sheet would end up damp causing extra washing on a more regular basis therefore having no real benefit to using both.

      Finally the aesthetic element! Using both a flat sheet with a quilt cover gives a very elegant and styled look. If you're concerned about showing your Egyptian cotton bed linen in all it's beauty then for you, we recommend using both!

      Egyptian cotton bed linen is a real plus when you buy "true" Egyptian cotton as it has superior softness due to its long staple fibres. Egyptian cotton bed linen feels incredibly smooth against the skin, has a lustrous sheen and a luxurious appearance most people desire in their bedroom. It helps your skin breath at night keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.

      Likewise due to this longer more durable fibre your bed linen will remain looking new and fresh for longer avoiding pesky pilling and discolouration. The problem arises as it's hard to distinguish real Egyptian cotton bed linen products from others which are claiming to be so however are made from an inferior quality. Most of the time one doesn´t realise until you´ve got them home and onto your bed. In some instances it takes just 2 to 3 washes for the pilling to become apparent and for these nasty sheets to start deteriorating.

      Common sense generally comes into play here, so if the price tag sounds too good to be true then it probably isn´t the real deal! Sometimes paying a little more now saves you a lot in the long run.
