Expertly woven: say hello to the twill

If you hadn’t guessed it by now: we’re obsessed with beautiful bed linen.

Our expert design team live and breathe sheets, and all the bed accessories they come with. We spend our waking hours exploring how to make slumber that much sweeter.

The twill weave is one of our favourites — and it’s ultra long lasting and strong, and has been around for hundreds of years.

It’s one of the most basic weave structures where the filling threads (weft) are woven over and under two or more warp threads, producing a visible diagonal effect, which emerges through the delicately interlaced threads.

This alternation sees either one or both sides of the fabric engulfed in a slanting pattern: subtle, but beautiful to peek at up close.
