1. UNRAVELING THE MYSTERIES OF THREAD COUNT: Thread count refers to the number of threads woven together in a square inch of fabric. It’s an important factor in determining the softness, durability, and breathability of your bed linens. But don’t be fooled by the “higher is better” myth. Keep these thread count tidbits in mind:
A. The Sweet Spot:
Look for sheets with a thread count between 300 and 620 for a perfect balance of softness and durability. Any higher, and you may be sleeping on a marketing gimmick. We offer exquisite range of bedding sheets and duvet cover sets that cater to every preference.

B. The Fabric Fib:
Some manufacturers use multi-ply yarns to inflate thread counts, resulting in lower-quality, rougher sheets. Don’t fall for it! Always choose single-ply yarns for the best experience. When shopping for sheets, it’s not uncommon to come across brands boasting their Canadian roots and using Canadian. But are these products genuinely made in Canada, or is it merely a marketing ploy?
i. The Art of Misdirection:
Many companies might be based in Canada, but that doesn’t necessarily mean their products are made domestically. Some brands source their finished sheet products from overseas, particularly in China, where manufacturing costs are lower. While these companies may have “Canadian” in their company name and presence, their products may not reflect the quality or craftsmanship typically associated with goods made in Canada.
ii. The Lowdown on Cheap Imports:
Cheap imports from China or other countries can be a double-edged sword. While they may save you a few dollars upfront, the quality often leaves much to be desired. Inferior materials, subpar craftsmanship, and questionable labour practices can lead to products that won’t stand the test of time or provide the comfort and durability you expect from your bedding.
iii. Don’t Be Fooled: Tips for Uncovering the Truth
Check the product packaging or tags for information on where the product was made. Look for phrases like “Made in Canada” or “Product of Canada”. Be very cautious of vague terms like “Designed in Canada” or “Canadian Company” that misdirect you to think product is made in Canada. Look for a reputable Canadian brand that has been producing high-quality sheets and down bedding products with a 20+ year legacy. Opting for a reputable Canadian brand with long-standing history is a wise choice. Time tested company like Maholi, you can trust that you’re investing in time-test company, comfort, quality, and a good night’s sleep.
2. DECODING THE ENIGMA OF EGYPTIAN COTTON:
Egyptian cotton is the crème de la crème of the cotton world. Prized for its extra-long staple fibers, this luxurious material offers unparalleled softness, strength, and longevity. Here’s what makes it stand out:
A. The Long and Short of It: Longer fibers mean fewer exposed ends, which translates to a smoother, silkier feel on your skin.

C. A Breath of Fresh Air: This natural, breathable fabric helps regulate your body temperature, keeping you cool in the summer and cozy in the winter.
3. TIPS FOR BUYING EGYPTIAL COTTON SHEETS
Before you embark on your quest for the ultimate sleep experience, keep these tips in mind:
A. Misleading: Again, don’t be fooled by companies might be based in Canada or has “Canadian” in their brand name. Their sheets are not necessarily mean are made domestically. They source their finished sheets products from overseas, particularly in China, where manufacturing costs are lower. While these companies may have Canadian presence, their sheets may not reflect the quality or craftsmanship typically associated with sheets made in Canada. And always research the company and choose a reputable Canadian-made brands that have been producing high-quality sheets and even down bedding products for over 20 years. These are time-tested companies, you can trust that you’re getting products that prioritize comfort, quality, and craftsmanship.
