Giza 45 Egyptian Cotton is noticeably softer, lighter and smoother than all other Egyptian Cottons. It’s grown in a tiny area east of the Nile delta, in perfect conditions.
The cotton is so fine that it is carefully hand picked and hand sorted; and is so scarce that it is only 0.4% of Egypt’s cotton production.
Available in Jacquard & Sateen.

Shams on our website are sold in pairs, however, they're also available à la carte. Shams never include a pillow fill, which must be purchased separately. A vareity of cushion forms are available ranging from basic to luxury.

Generally for our bed linens, wash and dry at low-medium temperatures on a gentle cycle. A hot dryer wears out all fabrics faster. Do not over dry. Do not use fabric softeners, bleach, brighteners or bleach alternatives. Always bed linens separately and never wash with other articles of any kind. Avoid using the "water saver" function as this will wear your fabrics out faster. If this specific fabric differs from the instructions here, we'll make mention at the top of this page.
Consider buying two identical fitted sheets. By alternating fitted sheets, you will more than double the life of your luxury sheet set.
Using a high quality specialty detergent such as Le Blanc Linen Wash is a great way to maintain your luxury textiles. Le Blanc Linen Wash is a high performance cleanser designed specifically for high end cotton, linen and modal sheeting.
Nearly every fabric we offer from St Genève is woven at mills in Italy which have passed down through several generations. St Geneve also import select fabrics and finished sheeting from other European sources including Portugal and Germany.
About Thread Count
With cotton sheeting the highest possible thread count is just over 400. When a fabric is listed as anything higher than 400, red flags must go up. This means they are actually quoting strand count (or just inventing a number) and this is not the appropriate method. For example we have sheeting materials with 600 or 1,015 strand count. Transparency is important to us, and as such we correctly market these as 300 and 380 thread count.
