What is cotton percale? Little reminder.
Contrary to what one might think, it designates a weaving technique, not a material. You are surely wondering why it is considered one of the vital elements of high-end bed linen. The answer is simple. The quality
of fabric lies mainly in its weaving. And cotton percale is one of the finest weaves for household linen. We are talking here about a weave in plain weave. That is, the threads intersect above and below. The tighter and denser the weaving, the more it will characterize the excellence and resistance of the material. If you are interested in more technical details, we let you read our first article on the subject right here.
