Behind Our Design: A Look Into Double Stitch's Cotton TENCEL™ Percale Collection

Behind Our Design: A Look Into Double Stitch's Cotton TENCEL™ Percale Collection

Earlier this month, we launched our exclusive Cotton TENCEL™ Percale Collection. The development of this collection involved exhaustive investigations, lab tests, and wear testing. To learn a bit more about the design and materials, we spoke with Molly Lane, Senior Designer at Double Stitch. Molly shared the difference between our Cotton TENCEL™ Sateen Collection and new percale series, why percale is the perfect summer bedding for hot sleepers, and the uniqueness of our exclusive blend. Join us to explore the story behind our Cotton TENCEL™ Percale.
Why Lenzing TENCEL™ lyocell?
TENCEL™ lyocell fibers are sourced from sustainably cultivated trees such as eucalyptus, carefully chosen from certified forests to protect natural woodlands. With an ultra-fine microfiber structure, TENCEL™ lyocell is softer than cotton. It is naturally breathable and moisture-wicking, and is resistant to wrinkles and pilling.
Why US Grown Cotton?
After performing lab tests with a variety of cotton from all over the world, we chose US cotton for its exceptional quality. Responsibly sourced from Texas, our cotton meets the highest standards of COTTON USA™. It's buttery soft and cozy, perfect for all season, and incredibly durable.
