The 'Luxury' bunch is an exclusive compilation of fabrics made from very fine yarn, namely 120/2 and 140/2. Such fabrics are so select they can only be made from original 'Giza' cotton.

Needless to say, these fabrics are extraordinarily soft and silky. On top of it all, this unique strain of cotton creates a radiant and luminous white that remains brilliant even after frequent laundering.
