On the Mediterranean Linens website, the company focusses on authentic Egyptian cotton bedlinen, highlighting not just it’s unrivalled quality but it’s eco friendly credentials.
Ashraf Said, Mediterranean Linens’ founder and Managing Director says of the new venture:
‘The market is changing in the textile industry. Increased awareness of sustainability, the need to reduce waste and growing concern about our environment has led us to develop a range that meets the needs of today’s consumer. We all know that cheap fabric and fast fashion is an environmental disaster. That’s why all our bedlinen is made from 100% Egyptian cotton which is renewable and biodegradable, making it an excellent choice as an environmentally friendly product.’
By combining luxury with responsible sourcing, Mediterranean Linens hope to be a shining example for other companies to follow.
