Fabric for Thought: Sateen vs. Percale Bedding: Which Is Best For You?
While both promise unparalleled comfort and style, Double Stitch sateen and percale offer distinct sleep experience that caters to different preferences and needs. The variation comes down to the weaving process. Despite being crafted from the same award-winning materials, the way these fabrics are woven creates entirely different textures and qualities. Building upon our previous exploration of our Cotton TENCEL™ Sateen Collection, let's delve deeper into the unique characteristics of percale and sateen, shedding light on their differences to help you make an informed choice for your sleep sanctuary.

Cotton TENCEL™ Sateen

Our Cotton TENCEL™ Sateen products provide an ultra-soft and silky smooth feel, making them ideal for most sleepers seeking a skin-friendly and luxurious experience. Regular cotton can sometimes be too rough for sensitive skin, leading to irritation and discomfort. Our Cotton TENCEL™ Sateen sheets, however, are designed to be exceptionally gentle, providing a soothing touch that feels luxurious against the skin. Crafted with durability in mind, they are less prone to wrinkling, ensuring easy care and maintenance for any lifestyle. Experience unparalleled comfort that calms your body and mind, making every night's sleep a truly restful one.

Cotton TENCEL™ Percale

On the other hand, our Cotton TENCEL™ Percale products offer a crisp, smooth, and breathable feel, perfect for those who prefer a lightweight and airy sleep experience. With their natural cooling properties, they provide year-round comfort for a restful night's sleep. Despite its durability and strength, percale can be prone to wrinkling and may produce noise with movement. However, Double Stitch has optimized the blend ratio of cotton and TENCEL™, resulting in a smoother feel compared to traditional percale. It's hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, and maintains its quality even after repeated washes.
Whether you're a cold sleeper or a hot sleeper, seeking hotel-style luxury or a soothing touch, Double Stitch offers a variety of materials—including sateen and percale—to suit everyone's needs, every night. Explore our Organic Cotton Collection, Linen TENCEL™ Lyocell Collection, and other bedding essentials.
