Go behind the scenes of dusk.com to find out how our experts choose our iconic high-quality bedding.

At dusk.com, we have over 22 years' experience sourcing the best materials from across the globe to create luxury products at affordable prices. Each item you see has gone through a meticulous process that took the initial idea to your bedroom, trialing a variety of options until we create the perfect bedding. Here are favourite fabrics and materials.

Cotton Percale
We have chosen 100% cotton percale for many of our duvet and pillowcases as we believe it is the better choice for those who like a crisp sheet. Finer than muslin, we use between 200 and 400 thread count cotton percale giving the tighter weave a smooth, crisp feel.

Natural Down and Feather
Our pillows in particular utilise the amazing qualities of both for a superior feel; the fluffy down gives your pillow a plump and cosy fill while an inner core of pure white feathers offer much needed support for a comfortable night's sleep.

French Linen
Our 100% pure French linen sheets are perfect for a relaxed, chic look to give your room a je ne sais quoi. French linen doesn't need ironing, will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and gets softer after every wash. Our Vintage French Linen Collection is made from 100% French linen, combining timeless design with utmost quality to create a chic bedspread for that cosy feel.

Silky Sateen
Divine softness and elegant look, Sateen is 100% pure cotton with a high thread count and a lustrous sheen for a true luxury feel. The sleek look of the sheets offers a chic alternative to crisp cotton percale with an indulgent softness you won't want to leave.

Feels Like Down
Feels Like Down is a synthetic microfibre that boasts the natural softness and loft of down and offers a great alternative. It is an incredibly breathable filing for your duvet and pillow that will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, whatever tog rating you choose.
