Long-lasting, super soft and versatile, it's no wonder our pure cotton bedding feels so luxurious.
Our bedding collections begin with high quality materials. We use our expertise in bed linens and fabrics to source the best materials around the world for our luxury bedding for less. And there’s nothing better than slipping between quality Suvin cotton sheets.
Suvin Cotton is considered to be the world’s longest and finest cotton fibre, giving our white bedding its beautifully silky soft feel. Grown exclusively in India, Suvin cotton is stronger, longer and finer than Egyptian cotton. The dense quality of the fibres results in a stunningly soft and lustrous finish for a luxurious look. The superb quality of the cotton means that your bedding just improves with each wash, getting softer and softer and making it a true home investment.
At DUSK, our bedding is made from 100% Suvin cotton and is available in a crisp percale or a silky sateen. The luxurious cotton bedding is then complemented with Oxford edges, elegant stitching or delicate detail to become our signature styles, only available only at DUSK.com.

The Dusk Team believe practicing a little self-care a day can boost your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health for a better-balanced life. Here are a few of their tops tips they'd like to share.
1. Create YOUR OWN space even if it's making your favourite chair or your bed extra cosy

The Dusk Team believe sleep is the key to a happy, healthy and balanced life, and that starts with your bedding. Find out if the Supreme Goose Down is the right fill for your best night's sleep.
Our Supreme Goose Down Duvets are the epitome of luxury living: Filled with 80% fluffy white goose down and wrapped in 100% cotton percale, the duvet collection is competitively priced to offer you an amazing quality product for less. But there's more to what makes our duvet great.
There are many benefits to down and feather fills. The fluffy down clusters are a natural insulator with incredibly soft strands that make the duvet incredibly lofty with a slight spring back. An inner core of pure white goose feather adds extra weight and support to keep you warm and cosy at night, while the baffle wall structure keeps the down and feathers in place to avoid lumpy or bald patches.
Our duvets are encased in 100% superior cotton to compliment the fill for a breathable duvet, perfect for regulating your body temperature during the night.

When you invest in DUSK bedding, we want to make sure you will get a better night's sleep for years to come rather than a few months. So, the Dusk Team have created some simple guides to help care for your new bed linens and make the most of the high quality feel of the fabrics.
With all of our bedding we recommend you wash it before use. This will get them smelling great and will allow natural shrinkage in the fabric to occur. Our bedlinen sizing takes into account the fibres natural shrinkage to give you a great fit after washing.
Before you wash any of your bedding, always check the care label on the individual item for better clarity on washing and ironing temperatures and the cleaning products that should be used.
Your bedding will look its best for longer when washed at lower temperatures. Wash bedding on its own, avoiding anything with zips or hooks that could catch on the fabric and cause superficial damage.
Looking after Cotton
For cotton bedding, always use the best detergent for the product you are washing: colour fabrics are best washed with washing gels or detergents formulated for colours. For pure whites we recommend powders. Avoid using bleaches or optical brighteners as these can cause colours to look washed out and can cause stain patches.
We'd also recommend flat drying your sheets on the radiator or washing line weather permitting) as the heat and movement of the tumble dryer could cause some damage to the fabric. If you do choose to tumble dry your bedding use a lower temperature and take the bedding out while it is still a little damp. This will also help make your sheets easier to iron for a crisp look.
Looking after French Linen
When washing French Linen ensure you do not use any products containing bleach. Bleach can destroy the strength of the natural linen fibres and will most certainly affect the colour. Always check for bleach or bleaching agents in detergents to avoid damaging the fabric. Like cotton, choose the best detergent for your linens with washing gels best for colour and powders better suited for pure whites.
Linen's naturally crimp fibres give bedding a beautiful relaxed look after washing and drying with little need for ironing. If you do prefer a smoother finish iron the fabric while it is still a little damp to make it easier iron.
