The Percale is cool crisp and while the Sateen finish is silky smooth and has a shiny finish.

European is some of the highest quality linen around, and yet they manage to keep these sheets at a reasonable price compared to other brands. They stone wash their linen sheets to ensure they are wonderfully broken in and soft from day one.
The American Made Organic Cotton Sheets are made with 100% Organic Cotton that is certified by GOTS. This particular sheet set is also only available in one off white color option. Why off white?
