Bedding material

SUITE702 offers the best quality bedding . All our bedding is made in Portugal and is always 100% organic and GOTS certified. Because everyone has their own preferences, we have a wide range of materials and weaving techniques.

Percale cotton bedding

We love percale , and for good reason. It is a wonderful, light fabric that breathes and remains beautiful for a long time. Even after many washes.

Percale, or percale cotton, is not a specific type of cotton but represents a symmetrical weaving technique. Percale is very finely woven and has a very high thread count, also called 'thread count' or TC. Such fine weaving is only possible with high-quality long fiber
cotton fiber. Our percale is woven from cotton, comparable to Egyptian cotton, but our percale meets the strictest sustainability criteria.

Percale has all the fine properties of cotton, but is even better in terms of quality. Where normal cotton sometimes feels a bit stiff, the higher thread count of percale makes the fabric feel softer and finer/smoother. Our percale bedding has a thread count of 300, which means that the fabric is very finely woven.

Percale bedding is a bit cooler, breathes well and remains beautiful for a long time. This is why you see it a lot in hotels. Percale cotton is therefore also called hotel quality. The material feels wonderfully smooth and crispy. Percale has a bit of the feeling of fresh new bedding, but every day. Delicious!

Satin cotton bedding

Many people think that satin is a material, but this is a misunderstanding. Satin is also often confused with silk, but this has nothing to do with each other. Satin (just like percale) represents a weaving technique. Because four weft threads run over one warp thread, a beautiful 'satin' sheen is created. This allows the yarns to be woven even closer together and the fabric becomes even more flexible.

Cotton woven in a satin weave is supple, light, thin and very soft. A lot softer than percale. The satin cotton from SUITE702 has a thread count of 400: 400 threads are used per inch. This is a special (or even extreme) amount and provides an extra luxurious look, but above all a luxurious touch. In textile jargon you call this the hand of the material.

Linen/cotton bedding

Linen is a material that comes from the flax plant. The long fibers are often used in clothing but also bedding. Linen is a very strong and durable material. Linen wrinkles a little more.

Our washed linen bedding consists of 55% linen and 45% cotton. This is how we combine 'the best of both worlds'. By using a cotton-linen mix and by washing and dyeing, our linen bedding feels a lot smoother. The SUITE702 washed linen has the typical sturdy, sturdy (vintage) look & feel that you are used to from linen.
