A closer look at Albertine

Albertine is a simple white bed linen collection for when you want a completely timeless look, but its subtle ribbon trim – which comes in three neutral colours – means that it still feels special. The main focus is on the super-soft Egyptian cotton, which has a smooth, satin finish.

The fabric

Only a tiny proportion of the world’s cotton qualifies for the name Egyptian cotton – it’s a sign of fine quality, although it’s no longer grown just in Egypt. The fibres are naturally long, so they’re very strong when woven. They’re also soft, smooth and breathable, with a subtle sheen. Egyptian cotton is ideal for making bed linen, as it’s both luxurious and long-lasting.

A note on thread count

Thread count refers to the number of threads woven together in a square inch. 500 is at the very top end: it means the fabric is tightly woven, which makes for warmer, silkier and stronger bed linen.

The trim [Lily]

The narrow grosgrain (ribbed) ribbon on Albertine’s edge is a subtle detail – enough to catch the eye, but without spoiling its clean look. It comes in three shades – this one is Lily, a pale grey that gives just a little more definition than white.

Design is in the detail

Our pillowcases are generously sized and have a deep flap at the back, so pillows fit easily inside. This gives them a crisper look on the bed.
