Percale vs. Sateen Sheets: Understanding the Difference
We love to offer our customers bedding options, because we know that there are all kinds of sleepers. For instance, some sleepers only want bedding that’s made with natural fibers like cotton, while others get too warm during the night and must have sheets that are lightweight and cooling.
Whatever your unique sleep style is, it’s our mission to offer you superior quality and a bedding collection that will meet all your personal needs. In this post, let’s take time to explore our best-selling Relaxed Cotton Bedding Collection, which offers you two kinds of bedding: Percale and Sateen.
Before we talk about how our Percale and Sateen sheets are different, let’s first look at their similarities:
- Both are made from premium 100% long-staple cotton.
- Both are handcrafted with love and care in the beautiful countryside of Portugal.
- Both are exquisitely soft, easy to care for, and durable.
- Both have a relaxed, lived-in look that only gets better with time.
- Both are OEKO-TEX Certified to be free of harmful chemicals.
Now let’s look at how they are uniquely different:
Percale Bed Sheets
Percale is known for its lightweight and airy quality. It will give you a crisp, cool sleep experience year-round, which is why it’s a great option for those who sleep on the hot side or people who live in warmer climates.
Our Relaxed Cotton Percale bed sets are like a refreshing, cool breeze that’s gently caressing your skin. Breathable, ultra-soft, and relaxing, our Percale is all about simple, low-maintenance comfort and style.
Sateen Bed Sheets
For something that’s buttery soft and luxurious, choose Sateen. It has a smoother, silky finish with a slight sheen. A great option for those who want something more snuggly and cozier, and a bed sheet with a beautiful drape.
Our extra-fine woven Relaxed Cotton Sateen is garment washed in small batches, giving it a soft, heathered look and casual, elegant style.
Percale or Sateen? Consider what your personal sleep preferences are, as well as your bedroom style, but no matter which one you choose, you can always trust that you’ll get the very best in quality and craftsmanship.
