The Finest Cotton Bedding on Earth:

  • by Mary Babinski
  • 6 min read

 Giza 45 cotton is known as the finest on Earth. This article is a buyer's guide to the SFERRA Giza 45 Collection offered by Fine Linen and Bath.

SFERRA Giza 45 Bedding: The Ultimate in Quality and Craftsmanship

Choosing the ultimate luxury cotton bedding comes down to evaluating two things: the quality of the fabric and the caliber of the craftspeople producing the linen. SFERRA marries the best of both with the finest cotton on Earth with the fabled talent of textile artisans who have refined their skills over generations. The result is SFERRA Giza 45, a collection of bed linen that is superior in beauty, comfort and performance.

At Fine Linen and Bath, we are honored to represent this iconic bed sheet collection. It is our distinct pleasure to showcase the unparalleled luxury, quality, and craftsmanship of SFERRA Giza 45. Let's take a closer look at this unique bedding.

What is Giza 45 Cotton?

Genuine Giza cotton is grown exclusively in the Nile River Delta region of Egypt. The nutrient-rich waters of the river, the cooler sea air, and high humidity levels foster the ideal environment for nurturing the finest cotton on Earth. Among the varieties grown in the region, Giza 45 stands alone as the highest quality; it has the longest staple cotton fibers and outstanding uniformity and fineness. Known as "The Queen of Egyptian Cotton," Giza 45 represents only one half of one percent of all cotton grown annually in the country. It is rare, special, and prized.

This is why legendary Italian linen manufacturer SFERRA chose to build its flagship collection on Giza 45; it is a fabric truly worthy of the skill and artistry of SFERRA's master craftsmen. SFERRA Giza 45 linen is made for luxury bed linen aficionados, discerning individuals who crave the best and settle for nothing less.
