      Discover our collection Formentera which comes in a 280 thread count Egyptian cotton sateen bed linen. Inspired by the colours of the Balearic Island this range comes in a brilliant white with a sateen double appliqué border. The styled border is available in 3 neutral colours- navy blue, ash grey and honey. 

      Our 280 thread count sateen bed linen collection is available in bed sizes from Single Bed through to the Super King size.  The range includes our extra deep fitted sheet, flat sheet, quilt cover and an extensive selection of pillowcase designs.  These bed linen products are made with a double appliqué border perfectly framing each of them with the exception of the fitted sheet which is solely in one piece of white sateen to ensure your comfort.  

      The 280 thread count sateen has the soft feel of a true sateen, durability of a percale and a light sheen to the material being often 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.

      Particular popular with our customers is the fact the fitted sheet comes with a fully elastic perimeter and extra deep wall to ensure the sheet does not move throughout the night.  Likewise we´ve removed any detailing on the fitted sheet so no annoying seams affect the quality of your sleep. 

      Why Choose our 280 Thread Count Sateen?

      The sateen weave gives the fabric a smooth, luxurious feel with a subtle sheen. This particular collection works in both warm summer nights and the chillier winter months. It has a light feel allowing the skin to breath through the night yet keeps you warm at the same time.  

      The high 280 thread count indicates a denser weave which translates to a softer and more durable fabric.  The sateen finish along with the styled double appliqué border lends a touch of elegance and luxury to this collection making it a popular choice for those seeking comfort and style in their bedroom.  

      There is also the fact this range is made from the best Egyptian cotton sateen we could find. Why is Egyptian cotton so important you may ask? The answer is simple. Egyptian cotton is renowned for its superior softness due to its long staple fibres. Bed linen made from Egyptian cotton feel incredibly smooth and luxurious against the skin. It has a lustrous sheen and a luxurious appearance most people desire in their bedroom.

      Why Choose our Formentera Collection?

      Our Formentera Collection is our boldest design and because of that it is one of the most popular to date.  The bold double appliqué gives a styled look to the bedroom with each colour giving a slightly different slant on that style.  For example, the navy blue has been extremely popular as bedding for luxury boats.  Likewise the Single Bed size in navy blue has been a big hit for decorating boys bedrooms with a nautical theme.  

      The Ash Grey colour has also been a popular for boating as well as those looking for a more subtle look in their bedrooms. This colour comes in single through to super king size.  We have had mothers purchasing this for their children, both boys and girls of all ages as well as for the master bedroom.

      The Honey colour was designed with the master bedroom in mind.  This colour has been extremely popular with interior designers that have used beige tones for the master bed which they want highlighted in the bed linen as well.

      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.
