Can we have bed linen that is hygienic, easy to iron and longer lasting even in high-rotation use?

WE LOVE:

  • Hotels that pamper us with crisp and hygienic bed sheets that feel & look brand new, day after day

BUT DID YOU KNOW:

  • Bed linen used in hotels are washed, ironed, and replaced extremely frequently…
  • …leading to high consumption of water, energy and cotton waste
